The Horseshoe Smokehouse in Grand Rapids served its last barbecue last week.
The southern-style restaurant announced on Thursday it was closing via a Facebook post. “We want to thank everyone for their support and business, we are sad to say we are closing the doors,” the post reads.
Based on the plethora of comments the post received, it’s clear the restaurant was a favorite for several Grand Rapidians and will be missed.
The Horseshoe Smokehouse opened in 2015 over Memorial Day weekend. It was one of a handful of barbecue joints that opened around that time in and around downtown Grand Rapids. The restaurant tried to set itself apart from its competitors through its array of side dishes.
It was located at 333 Grandville Ave. SW, down the street from Founders Brewing Co. and across the street from the Grand Rapids Ballet.
