Update: Larry J's House of Q in Chelsea Has Closed; Moving to Boston's Seaport District

[Ed note: This article was edited on June 18 to reflect the fact that Larry J's has closed its Chelsea location. Thanks to Eater Boston for bringing this to our attention.]

It looks like a BBQ joint in Chelsea is planning to move to a new location in a section of Boston that has relatively few "cheap eats" options.

According to their Facebook page, Larry J's House of Q on Broadway has closed down, with a post within the EveryBlock Boston site indicating that the barbecue restaurant now has a business license to operate at 600 D Street, which is just south of Northern Avenue and the Boston Fish Pier in the heart of the Seaport District. Last week the restaurant's Facebook page mentioned that it was "working hard to get a new place [in] Seaport South Boston," and now, with the news of the business license being received, it appears that the barbecue restaurant may now be on track to open there.

[July 10 update: According to their Facebook page, Larry J's House of Q appears to be going through a soft opening right now, as a message yesterday says that "We still have not open[ed] up fully but we are working on it very hard everyday." And "Open tomorrow [today] for lunch and dinner. Stop by and pick up dinner to go."]

Larry J's House of Q first opened in Chelsea in the fall of 2010, offering such items as catfish nuggets, rib tips, chili, macaroni and cheese, pulled pork, brisket, jerk chicken, smoked sausage, ribs, burgers, and turkey legs.

The address for this barbecue restaurant in the Seaport District is: Larry J's House of Q, 600 D Street, Boston, MA, 02210. Their website can be found at
