ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Another new restaurant is opening in Albany, this one by a former restaurant owner from Lee County.
A soft opening for Jabs BBQ Restaurant was held on Tuesday afternoon.
On the menu are briskets, ribs, chicken, pulled pork and several other items.
Last year, co-owner Jackie Cape closed his BBQ restaurant, Meat Slangers, after 16 years of business.
But he said the customers couldn't get enough of his BBQ given that he participated in countless BBQ competitions over 23 years.
Initially, the restaurant was going to be located downtown but he decided on Dawson Road instead.
"I just fell in love with it. It's what I envision as a BBQ restaurant. It's homey, it's rustic, it's a comforting feeling. It's what a BBQ restaurant should be," said Cape.
Jabs BBQ Restaurant will officially open it's doors Thursday.
They'll be open from 11 to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 to 8 p.m. on Sundays.
