Uncle Billy's BBQ back to Portland

I drove by the old Bella Cucina/Nile restaurant spot yesterday and saw that it was being worked on. That is on Congress St. a few blocks down from the State Theater. They now have it on the window that it is going to be Uncle Billy's. I actually have never been to the other one but I heard it was very good. I know they have been looking for the right spot in Portland for a while. They will only be a block or two away from Norm's, but I'm sure they'll do fine.

  1. I went to the original, Portland, location before the fire. The food was pretty good and the atmosphere was really funky. I tried on several occasions to visit the “new” location in Yarmouth, but they were always closed and kept off hours and whatnot, so I finally gave up. I think they were only open Thursday through Saturday. I hope that the newest location in Portland keeps more regular hours.
