More details about Muddy’s revealed

Last week we reported on the closing of Muddy’s Smokehouse BBQ in Robesonia after the restaurant was unable to work out a new lease with its landlord. Originally, the restaurant had planned to open for the weekend in conjunction with the Robesonia Street Fair, but the restaurant never opened on Friday. A note on the door said that the utilities had been turned off. The restaurant gave more details on Facebook, saying that when they went in to open on Friday, the phone and Internet had been disconnected making it impossible for them to accept credit cards or to take orders. Muddy’s Oley location continues to thrive and is accepting all gift certificates purchased in Robesonia.
