Deep Ellum barbecue joint Mama Faye's has closed up shop. The family-owned restaurant opened back in 2010 serving ribs, hot links, and chopped beef sandwiches along with other homey fare like oxtails, but more often than not the dining room seemed to be mostly empty.
A sign on the door reveals Mama Faye's is relocating east to Sulphur Springs. The new address is 105 N. Davis Street and the phone number is (903) 885-9300, though no one's picking up just yet and the Deep Ellum number has already been disconnected.
Of course, with Pecan Lodge and Baker's Ribs in the neighborhood — plus Mac's Barbecue just up the street — Deep Ellum certainly won't suffer from any lack of smoked meats.
