When Brian Merel opened up Papa Willie’s BBQ in Highwood last month, he had no idea how popular it would end up being.
On his first day in business, Oct. 20, he had to close the restaurant after just 90 minutes.
Because he ran out of food.
“I was way under (the demand),” he said.
Despite running out of food, Merel said he’s happy he opened the business that day, because it gave him a glimpse of what people in Highwood and the surrounding areas want.
