What happened to Lyles BBQ??

Profit: a man and woman talking to the camera


It’s the last call for BBQ, Lyles BBQ Company is closing.

This morning, an email was sent out announcing that this will be their last week of selling BBQ.

Profit: a man and woman talking to the camera“We’ve really enjoyed the last five years with you guys. The support you guys showed brought us all the way from a tent on the side of the road to our location on Clays Mill.”

The plan is for Lyles BBQ to be open at their Clays Mill location until Saturday, but each day there will only be a certain amount of BBQ available and they expect to run out by 3 pm.

At the end of the email, the family stated it’s been a crazy ride, which is definitely true for the Lyles family.

This time last year, we watched the Lyle’s BBQ family on CNBC’s show The Profit, a tv series hosted by the CEO of Camping World, Marcus Lemonis, who travels the country rehabbing small businesses (a bit like the ‘Bar Rescue’ concept.)

A few months later in June, the Lyles family opened a southern comfort food restaurant, Nash’s Southern Table and Bar, in the former Willie’s Locally Known on Southland Drive. Unfortunately a couple months later in September, Nash’s Southern Table & Bar announced on Facebook they would be closing their doors immediately.

So yes, a crazy ride it has been. But knowing the Lyles family, they don’t mark the end of an era without the anticipation of a new beginning.
