2 Jerks Kitchen & Bar in Raynham Hit By Fire

A barbecue spot south of Boston is closed for the time being after sustaining damage in a fire.

According to an article from 7 News Boston, 2 Jerks Kitchen & Bar in Raynham was hit by a blaze early Thursday morning, with firefighters being able to quickly extinguish the fire. It appears that the blaze started due to excess grease in a smoker, and fortunately the place was empty at the time and there were no injuries. The Facebook page for 2 Jerks says that "there is quite a bit of damage to clean up. At this time, we are unsure of the impact this will have on our operation but will keep you all posted as soon as we have an idea of how long we will need to be closed."

The address for 2 Jerks Kitchen & Bar is 701 Broadway, Raynham, MA, 02767. Its website can be found at

Thanks to Universal Hub for initially bringing this to our attention.

[July 8 update: A Facebook comment from 2 Jerks Kitchen & Bar indicates that the restaurant could be reopening later this month or early next month, while its Facebook page shows that it has popped up at the Easton Country Club for indoor/outdoor dining and takeout in the meantime.]

[November 18 update: Wicked Local states that 2 Jerks hopes to reopen its Raynham location in a few weeks, and it will also continue to operate out of the Easton Country Club as well. (The post also says that the back dining room in Raynham will become a Texas roadside-style market.)]
