Local Restaurant to Close its Doors

WGIL Newsroom . Local News 564

A Galesburg business that has been in operation for several years is closing its doors.
C&R’s Smokehouse BBQ on North Cherry Street is closing as of July 23rd.
That’s according to a post on the restaurant’s Facebook page.
The establishment opened to much fanfare three years ago, and it’s not clear why the closing is taking place.
The restaurant does bar-b-que and catering, along with other menu items, and has been known to help community causes.
Messages left for restaurant owner Corny Stanley were not immediately returned yesterday.
But some commenters on Facebook suggested the location may be to blame for the closure, especially since the rail crossing in that area closed as part of the city’s effort to implement quiet zones.
