Badgers BBQ closes shop

Badgers BBQ, a Lewisville restaurant, opened last August–with a grand opening on Saturday, Oct. 4. However, the family-owned restaurant recently closed its doors, according to a post on the BBQ joint’s Facebook page.

Badgers, owned by Emilee and Erich Klein, served family-style barbecue, but they also want to use their restaurant to honor “the badge”: law enforcement, firefighters and soldiers in the community. Hence the name Badgers.

The restaurant has received mixed reviews on the Facebook groups Flower Mound Cares and Lewisville, TX-Community Blabber.

“Badgers is decent, nothing spectacular. Definitely try Fat Cow next time, best BBQ in Denton County last 2 years running,” one user wrote in the latter Facebook group.

Lisa Strickler, another user of the group, wrote that the Kleins were struggling to stay open because the landlord for the property left a plumbing problem for two months, killing their business.

“He just recently fixed it and they have put everything they had into this business,” she wrote. “Pray for them to overcome a bad landlord and people not understanding, for all the good work they have done not to go away. Good people, excellent food in mass quantity.”

Erich Klein only said the building was incompatible with their needs. So he is looking for a new location.

Until the Kleins reopen elsewhere, send them a message on Facebook for ordering barbecue.
