Little Louie's BBQ snuffed its smokers and closed its Haddon Avenue restaurant in Collingswood.
The restaurant has a simple sign on it front door stating "We Are Closed." A representative declined to comment further or provide additional details, other than confirming the closure.
The restaurant's website and Facebook pages were still operational as of Wednesday afternoon and did not mention the closure. The Facebook page was last updated on Feb. 3 announcing Super Bowl specials.
Little Louie's opened to fanfare in November 2011. At the time, its pitmaster Gerald Dougherty said the barbecue scene and South Jersey were new to him, but that Collingswood was ideal for the venture.
"... The whole concept of Little Louie's, is meant to be a quick dining experience that's casual, fun and very appealing," he said then.
Collingswood's trove of restaurants spans many cuisines, but Little Louie's closure leaves a barbecue hole in the lineup.
