1/8/2021 UPDATE: The restaurant has officially closed, a photo was released from a beachy location in the Golden Isles of G.A. for a new spot to open in 2021. Keep watching for more details!

A Carrollton BBQ restaurant announced today that it will be closing its doors on January 9. Judd and Kate Foster, owners of South of Heaven BBQ located at 401 Maple Street, made the announcement on social media today. The statement reads:

To our ๐•Š.๐•†.โ„ family,

Kate and I would like to thank all of you for welcoming us with open arms and helping us live out our dream.  Over the past 5 years we have had so much to be grateful for.  From opening day and lines around the block, to a packed out mansion, to parking lot pop-ups, you have been there.  You all helped us with various raffles to support small businesses during the first covid shut down and came together as a community to help us feed our front line workers. You guys have always showed up for one another and thatโ€™s the Carrollton we have come to love!

January 9th will be our last day of service in the Maple Street Mansion. Our little family has been put through the ringer this past year. We have been tested mentally and physically trying to keep our location at the mansion alive. Now itโ€™s time for us to take a breather and reinvent ourselves as business owners and fall back in love with our craft.  This was a devastating and almost impossible decision for us to make.

To our staff, (pre-COVID and present) Thank you.  Thank you for showing up. Thank you for taking pride in SOH.  Thank you for being a part of our family. Thank you for keeping us going.

To our community, Thank you all for all of your love and support. #longliveSOH

Love Judd, Kate and Charlie

Note from Owner of The City Menus, Jonathan Dockery

The City Menus would like to send our appreciation to South of Heaven for the mark that they made on our community, through countless donations of food and community social media interaction which helped other small businesses in a positive way. We will miss you! Best wishes to Judd, Kate, and Charlie and the rest of the staff at SOH. We are anxiously awaiting your next chapter.
