Hamtramck barbecue mainstay Three Star BarBQ is preparing to close its doors this week after more than 80 years in the city. The owners plan to move the restaurant from its current space at 11941 Joseph Campau St. to the former Kelly’s On the Eastside Pub & Grub address at 42314 Hayes Rd. in Clinton Township. Three Star BarBQ’s owners confirmed the move on social media on Sunday, July 8:

It’s unfortunate to say that this will be the last week for Three Star Barbecue serving dry rub ribs in Hamtramck since mid1930’s. The tradition will continue at our new location 42314 Hayes Rd, Charter Twp of Clinton, MI 48038 as soon as the new location is completed and approval is granted. We will keep you informed here as to opening day. Thanks to all of our dedicated customers for your continued support. We cannot wait to see you all at our new location.

The restaurant known for its generous diner breakfasts and dry-rubbed ribs will host its final service in Hamtramck on Sunday, July 15. Eater has reached out to Three Star BarBQ for more details on the closure.
