Popular barbecue restaurant Kentucky Greg's closes in Depew

Kentucky Greg’s has closed for good.

Or for ill, if you're a barbecue fan. The restaurant, at 2186 George Urban Blvd., Depew, had been a reliable dispenser of smoked meats for 21 years.

Owners Greg and Pamela Englehardt, who have been hands-on operators since the beginning, entertained offers for the restaurant last year but did not reach a sales agreement.

“That was a huge part of our lives for 21 years,” Pamela Englehardt said, “and like Greg said, the restaurant industry is like dog years.”

The restaurant is closed, but catering will continue, she said. Outstanding gift cards will be reimbursed, and she’s in the process of setting up an email address for gift card holders to arrange reimbursement, she said. Watch the Kentucky Greg’s Facebook page for details.

There may be a Kentucky Greg’s food truck in the future, but it’s too soon to know for sure, she said.

“Basically, we’re looking to downsize,” Englehardt said, “and have a little less stress.”
