Maurice's Gourmet Barbeque, 2515 Sunset Boulevard: October 2009   15 comments

Posted at 12:08 am in restaurants

I first wrote about this building when it was a former Quincy's. Now it is a former Maurice's. It seems the current recession has made a hash of the barbecue business, as this is the second Maurice's to close recently.

To me, the location seems a little awkward to get into and out of. I can't remember if that were the case when it was a Quincy's or if it is an artifact of all the road work that's been done on the I-26 / US-378 interchange over the last couple of years. However, the selling realtor is apparently quite upbeat about the plot as the the current asking price is $1,350,000.

UPDATE 8 November 2009: Forgot to hat tip commenter B.C.

  2. Where is the other Maurice's that closed? I know the one at the corner of Beltline and Devine St. is still opened, but havent seen any other closed yet. Is the one on Two Notch near Sessqui? Sess-swatch? or however it's spelled still there? Thanks..

  5. Is the drive through business on St. Andrews by Zaxby's closed as well? I know he attempted to fill a void at the Sunset location after Millender's closed, but he ain't no Millender's. McDonald's bbq for the masses.

  8. In the few years that location was open, it never really got a large crowd. Honestly I'm surprised it was open as long as it was. It was horribly difficult to get in and out of, but that's a direct result of the new I-26 interchange. It wasn't too bad when it was a Quincy's. The vacant 7-11/Pizza House/Doctor's office building next door didn't help things either, I'd imagine.

  9. My wife and I had our first date at Pizza House. We really enjoyed the ambience of that restaurant and were sorry to see it close years ago.

  11. It looks as if the Burger King across the street from this will relocate to Hwy 378 & Leaphart Road...which makes sense as they can draw from two interstates there

  12. There used to be a decent BBQ place right behind this location on the frontage road- Millander's BBQ. Buffet style, good people, decent food. The building is still there I believe, but it looks like some sort of construction equipment rental place or something.

  13. What happened to Millender's BBQ is that when the I-26 & 378 interchange was redone, the construction made Millender's a PITA to try to get to and so the owners decided it was time to retire. My dad says that the SCDOT put Millender's out of business for that reason...

  15. I ate there once a couple of years ago, and I DID feel just a TAD out of place there. I didnt fit in with the local non-citified people. Dont get me wrong..I have LOTS of country cousins here and in the small towns of Georgia, but the people of Deliverence make these people look backwooded, and THAT'S scary!!!
