Giant Tepee BBQ Restaurant - Closed

Still closed and for sale. There was a sign in front about a special fundraising event at the Tepee in November.

While the structure is still there, with KJ's on the sign, the place is closed yet again with a for sale sign on the property. Too bad!

Giant Tepee BBQ

The teepee barbque is on Pocahontas Rd in Flora, MS. I read it reopened in fall 2011 and was bought by another local barbeque place. It's called KJ's.
