Reo’s Ribs Reopening

Reo’s Ribs will reopen sometime this month. The beloved barbecue closed after a fire in 2022. Its founder Reo Varnado, who also had a claim to fame as the rapper Snoop Dogg’s uncle, died that year. The 2022 fire was the third at the spot. It’s a surprise and delight to hear those ribs will come back. [Bridgetown Bites]
