Whitt’s said it “was a hard decision as Antioch was our first location, which opened the doors in 1978, followed shortly after by Charlotte in 1985.” No reason for the closures was released.

The beloved barbecue spot has been in business for more than 44 years. Click here for information on additional locations.

Whitt’s thanked its customers for their support over the years.
