Dining News: RIP Two of Three JR's Texas BBQ Locations

JR's Texas BBQ will close 2 out of its 3 locations, with its original location in South Sac remaining open, reports Mark Glover in the Sac Bee.

According to a Facebook posting, the restaurants at 3445 El Camino Ave. and 232 Jibboom St. closed Saturday...

On Saturday, the restaurant's Facebook page posted a message that said "it's a sad, sad day for us at JR's Bar-B-Que. We hope you will come see us at 180 Otto Circle. Thank you all for the great run."

A Feb. 28 post cited "the economy and the (rising cost) of doing business."

This comes after an early January announcement that the business was in trouble, and a subsequent announcement that additional sales and a business loan kept the restaurant afloat.

The dishes all sounded enticing – from the Portobello French dip (stacked on a Cajun aioli-slathered torpedo bun and served up with mushroom jus) to the rustic duck confit and hot Italian sausage cassoulet.
