Sixth Street Bodacious resumes operations

Bodacious Bar-BQ on Sixth Street reopened last week, after renovations after a fire in September.

The restaurant also still has memories of the years spent in the restaurant. The bathroom has also been enlarged to make it accessible to people with reduced mobility, while preserving the stained glass windows that were part of the bathroom doors.

Bodacious is open from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Saturday.
