Northeast-side barbecue restaurant GT South's abruptly closes

INDIANAPOLIS -- A northeast-side barbecue restaurant abruptly closed Wednesday.

GT South's Rib House, which has been in business since 1992, closed. A reason for the closure was not given on its Facebook page. 

"We appreciate your loyalty and business for the past 25 years," the Facebook post read. "We would like to thank everyone who made us a part of their weddings, graduations, birthdays and many other special events. We would also like to thank our employees, who have been with us for many years. Without them, we wouldn't have been able to have done any of it."

The restaurant was located at 71st Street and Binford Avenue, and served ribs, pulled pork, pulled chicken and wings.

GT South's was started in 1992 by G. Travis and Gladys South, two people from Georgia who met in college and moved to Indiana in the 1960s.

The Facebook post is filled with comments of memories of people visiting. 

David Hummel wrote: "Very sad news, the best bbq in town closing. I wish the best to the owners and employees on whatever is next in your lives!"

Ellen Finney Pickett wrote: "So sad to hear this!! We stopped by on the way home from the hospital when we had our youngest son, and he's now 16. Our favorite barbecue place. Love your Brunswick Stew. We will miss you!"
