Sambo's Barbecue: We are not a bar

Friday, August 8, 2008

CHAPEL HILL -- A restaurant proprietor who has applied for a permit to sell beer with meals has issued a statement refuting assertions from an alderman during last month's Beer Board meeting when he likened her business to a package store.

"Throughout the entire ordeal with the passage of the beer drinking on premises, I never and still don't have any negative feelings toward anyone or their difference of opinion," said Tina Wesson, proprietor of Sambo's Barbecue restaurant.

"I just want to serve our customers."
