SHERMAN, TX - Kevin Ooten, owner of the OO Smokehouse, said business has been steadily declining for the past 18 months, and with the current economy more people are cutting back on eating out.
The restaurant, located on Montgomery and Lamar in Sherman, has been featured in Texas Monthly for having some of the top barbecue in the state.
Ooten said it was a tough decision, but he and his wife had no choice. "I'm going to try to stay here as long as I can and sell the place, if not I'm going to have to just close the doors."
Ooten said he hopes he can find a buyer to keep the restaurant from closing.
