It looks like Cooper’s Barbeque is gonna have a bit of “competition” across Davie street. The BBQ chain, Dickey’s BBQ (home of the Big Yellow Cup Club, what?) will be moving into the base of the Progress Energy Building (170 East Davie Street) this Fall. We assume this is in the spot formerly occupied by Pharoah’s.
It’s great that the open storefront is being filled but no thanks, we’ll stick to Clyde Cooper’s (across the street), The Pit (down the street) and even Ole Time Barbeque (west of downtown) for our BBQ needs. I guess we may start seeing a handful of folks running around downtown with big yellow cups now.
