Zeke's Rock & Roll BBQ in downtown Ferndale will close on September 13 after more than three years in business.

The restaurant made the announcement on Facebook, stating, "It is with a heavy heart that we announce Zeke’s will be closed permanently beginning September 13th, 2018. These past few years have been nothing short of amazing and we thank everyone for making them happen. Please stop in within the next week, grab some delicious BBQ, and wish us farewell."



It's unclear what prompted the decision. We've reached out to Zeke's and we'll update the story if we hear back.

The space isn't likely to sit vacant long as it's restaurant-ready and in downtown Ferndale. Check back for updates on what's next.
