  1. I don’t have money to invest, but would definitely support your business by eating BBQ if you opened a new place!

  2. Mr. Banks,
    We miss you down at the beach so much. I am sorry to hear that you won’t be back there. But I am oh-so-excited that you want to stay in business AND in the neighborhood. If it’s not possible in the Philly’s building have you thought about the Sammy Burger’s building down the street? I wish you the best and like that you are reaching out to the community. Somebody should jump on the opportunity because you are definitely a great cook!

  3. Mr. Banks,

    I am so looking forward for you to open this joint. That would be awesome. I would be frequent customer if you do able to open this joint!!!!!


  4. Mr. Banks, Ian Eisenberg owns that property and you should talk to him about leasing it. I just interviewed him the other day and he has another idea but perhaps you can discuss this option with him. He posts on here periodically.
