Moultrie restaurant cleared to reopen

MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - The Moultrie restaurant at the center of an e-coli outbreak will reopen this weekend.

The familiar smell of Barbeque was in the air at The Barbeque Pit Friday as employees gave everything one last cleaning. It will reopen at 11:00 a.m. Saturday.

The Restaurant closed four weeks ago after it got e-coli tainted meat from a supplier in Nebraska. Health officials gave the restaurant the okay to open Wednesday, but owners say it's taken them some time to line up suppliers. They're thankful for support from the community.

"You have to wait for a certain day, they only deliver on certain days so you're kind of stuck when you lose a day," said Billy Hall, The Barbeque Pit Chef.

"It's amazing going through the situation that we've gone through and just the positive. I've felt like we've just had a lot of prayer and support because you never know what can happen and I think the doors, they'll be people here," said Nina Hall.

Owners say the restaurant will no longer grind their own meat because of the risk associated with possibly receiving bad meat.

They'll look for the best burger out there, and say they want feedback from customers as to which burger they like best.
