Short Sugar’s, the long-time barbecue restaurant on Riverside Drive in Danville, has closed.
Court documents filed Jan. 10 by Virginia Bank & Trust Co. state that 3B Barbeque Inc. — the company that purchased the restaurant in October 2011 for $697,000 — had been foreclosed on, owing the bank $675,100.
Shortly after purchasing the building, Eddie Blachura, of 3B Barbeque Inc., said he renovated the building, adding new tables and chairs and upgrading the bathrooms. Blachura said he had put four separate pits in the smokehouse and had added new items to the menu.
Blachura could not be reached for comment.
