ASHEBORO, N.C. — Loyal fans of the popular Blue Mist Restaurant in Asheboro were sad to find out the BBQ joint has shut its doors.

Some say a decrease in customers over the years left its owners no choice.

Last year, the Department of Transportation announced the U.S. 64 corridor loop would run right through the restaurant, leaving many to speculate that’s the reason for the restaurant closing.

The owners have not commented on the closing, but a look inside the restaurant reveals packed up supplies — a sad day for frequent customers in the area.
