According to Facebook, Notorious Burgers had it's soft opening. The restaurant serves hand crafted burgers and beer in Joey's Smokin BBQ's former location at 6955 El Camino Real Ste 107, Carlsbad, California 92009.
The owner of Joey's Smoking BBQ left this note on the restaurant's Facebook page announcing the closure:
Jeanie & I have owned Joey's Smokin BBQ and Doc's Saloon for 2 1/2 years and prior to that a 50% owner for 10 months.
Over this period of time, I have been juggling being a Clinical Psychologist with a specialty in Combat Stress over the past 20 years. I have been on numerous TV and Radio programs and also involved in many newspaper articles discussing PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injuries etc. our veterans experience. I even see Veterans at the restaurant quite often who come in for advice.
My final decision to close the restaurant came about 3 weeks ago when I visited The Military Academy at West Point to lecture at a faculty meeting and sit in on Cadets classes. I realized I need to get back to this full time. It is time to now move on to my people helping passion of 45 years and spend all my time working with Veterans and help develop an Integrative Treatment Program with Detoxification from Psychiatric Medications for our active and retired veterans.
Thanks again for all your support and fun we all had together, Bart ("Doc")
