Hat tip to Buster’s Momma (Again!! What would I do without her??) for the FYI on this one. Back in October ’07, I did an article on Morton’s BBQ Hut on Elyria Avenue, because it was falling apart, overgrown, and a car cemetery for old out-of-service City vehicles. It was so bad, even the camera wouldn’t focus:
So, I get an email from Momma, and she tells me there have been signs of activity there. And I ought to check it out. So….
Right off the bat, I notice the front awning is gone, the lot is mowed, the two large dumpsters are a gimme, and the doors were open, and there was serious activity in the front:
Word on the street was that Morton’s had some kick-ass BBQ ribs back in the day, and was a VERY popular spot. The property has not changed hands, according to the Auditor’s site. I will keep everyone apprised as things progress.
And make sure you’re here Monday, as I post a little bit of FISI magic!!
