Saturday was the last call for barbecue, wings and burgers at Park Avenue BBQ in Tequesta.

The long-time branch of the local restaurant chain has closed as it gets ready to open a new location on Indiantown Drive in Jupiter, in the old Applebee’s near the I-95 interchange.

Wait staff said the new Jupiter location should be open in about a week.

There are a couple of questions for long-time customers of the old location:


What happens to the Pabst Blue Ribbon ceiling mural? It apparently won’t fit in the industrial-style ceiling of the new location, but wait staff said Saturday that it might end up in another Park Avenue location.

Who has Palm Beach County’s best fried chicken?


We asked. You answered.

Readers of The Palm Beach Post were asked which restaurant had the best fried chicken and, by a narrow margin, the favorite was Bay Bay’s Chicken & Waffles in West Palm Beach.

The red-and-yellow shack on Okeechobee Road may look like there’s an old, Southern grandma hard at work in the kitchen. But there’s actually a well-thought-out secret to the restaurant’s success.
