Phenix City's Mike and Ed's BBQ reopens after 2016 fire

PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) - Mike & Ed's Bar-B-Q in Phenix City is back up and running.

After the November 2016 fire, moderate structural damage caused the restaurant to close down.

Mike and Ed's had to completely rip out the roof, redo the roof and AC units, and gut out the entire inside.

Last year, Owner, Chase Cook, told News Leader 9 the incident was shocking but it will be a blessing in disguise.

He also said he thought everybody that had been eating with Mike and Ed's will definitely come back and see them once they get back up and running."

He was right.

Friday night's reopening was a packed house.
