The Once Mobile Momma Raye's BBQ Decides to Stay Put
A mobile barbecue operation in Deep Ellum is readying to move into a permanent location on Commerce Street.
Momma Raye's Old Fashioned BBQ, which has been selling ribs and sliced beef sandwiches from a truck parked at Club Clearview, has been cleared by the city to take over the former Po-Bill's Café at 2933 Commerce Street. No word yet on an official opening date.
The Full Custom Gospel Barbecue blog took note of Momma Raye's set-up earlier this month, calling the beef "moist and flavorful," if a tad underdone. Full Custom's reviewer also described the wheeled smoker as a potential antidote for "the severe shortage of street food in Dallas," a situation that likely won't be helped by Momma Raye putting down roots.
