Bubbalou’s Bodacious Bar-B-Que (Facebook | Website) has closed its Winter Park location.

The popular barbecue restaurant has been in operation at 1471 Lee Road [GMap] since 1986, but owners took to Facebook to explain that business had dropped significantly during the pandemic and that they were forced to operate the restaurant with just four employees at reduced hours.

Their Winter Park staff have all been relocated to Apopka and they will continue to operate their other locations in Altamonte Springs and Kirkman Road as well.

Despite the quote below, the restaurant’s last day of business was Saturday, September 11.
