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.
