Jason Brock announces that he has officially completed the purchase of the former Bob Roberts BBQ, 599 W. Lowndes Drive, and renamed it to Davey Jay’s BBQ. His plan is to continue offering basically the same menu that prior owner Bob Wiygul did: “We’re probably just gonna maintain the status quo until I get in here and kind of get my feet set a little more and see how things are going,” Brock said. “I don’t really have any intentions on changing a whole lot. I’m a cook at heart myself, so I’ll have little menu specials and tweaks, but for the most part, our menu will stay fairly the same as what it was.” He plans to add some items to the menu while keeping much of it intact.


Speaking of well-known eateries, Statkville’s TBT Butcher Shop and Seafood Market is getting ready to open a new location in West Point – in the former Hoover’s Bakery location at 58 Hwy. 45 N. They plan to offer all of your old favorites, plus a little extra; they’re just waiting on the final inspection to be done, and may be open as soon as Friday or Saturday. “Once we get the kitchen up and running and staffed and everybody’s comfortable, then we’ll open up for dinner,” owner Artie Sutherland said. “The dinner menu will feature some of our steamed products and seafood and all the fun stuff. It’ll be a little higher end for dinner.” Planned hours: Mon~Sat 10am to 8pm.


And now for…More good food! 740 Coffee Company, located at 737 Main St., is in the same boat, just waiting on a final inspection before they can open their doors. Owner James White says that they have been working hard all Summer to get the place in tip-top condition. Please keep an eye out for them!
