Dan's BBQ Express took to Facebook this week to announce that it will be closing its doors in Lake Charles. The reason? It's time to retire. Dan's has been serving the Lake Area for 15 years, and is home to my favorite sandwich, the "Bubbalicious".

Their big announcement talks about how great the last 15 years have been, and encourages their BBQ lovers to stop by and celebrate this closure with them through the rest of the year with lots of specials and even cake. It's a very heartfelt message, but is also a little saddening to see at 15 year old place close its doors. On the upside, at least they are closing on their own time.
