It’s been almost three weeks since Romie’s Barbecue in downtown Tupelo on Troy Street closed, but, as owner Rob Lesley had mentioned, a new restaurant will be coming soon to replace it.
After looking over the restaurant inspections for the week, we noticed a passing grade for Earnest B Barbecue.
It doesn’t have a website, but they do have a Facebook page.
Those of you familiar with Earnest B know it’s in Amory, and it’s a popular place.
It’s home of Tesas-style rib. They have pork and chicken, of course, along with beef brisket.
We called the Amory restaurant, and they said they hope to open the Tupelo location around the first of November. We’ll keep you posted.
