The hits to Short Pump’s barbecue offerings keep mounting after a second local restaurant group has called it quits in the area.

The Halligan Bar & Grill’s location in West Broad Village at 2451 Old Brick Road served its last platter of smoked meats Sunday.

A sign on the entrance of its former space said the owners, Shawn and Cynthia Gregory, are retiring.

“This is the most difficult post I have ever had to make,” the sign stated. “It is with a very heavy heart that I announce The Halligan Bar & Grill in Short Pump will close its doors forever … We have met some of the greatest people and friends along the way, but it’s time for Cynthia and I to finally retire.”

The firefighter-themed restaurant opened in West Broad Village nearly six years ago. Its closure comes months after The Halligan closed its Shockoe Bottom location at 3 N. 17th St. for renovations, which according to its website will reopen once improvements to the 17th Street Farmers’ Market are complete.

About three years ago, the Gregorys opened a scaled-down express concept with a similar menu in a shopping center near Green Top and Home Depot at 10180 Lakeridge Parkway in Ashland. That location is still in business.

The Gregorys could not be reached for comment Monday afternoon.

The restaurant’s closure comes about a month after Q Barbeque closed its Corner at Short Pump location at 11871 W. Broad St.

While unfortunate it may be a good thing, everyone that I knew who ate there ended up with a case of the trots.

The west end is simply over-saturated with resturants and yet new concepts continue to try to get a piece of market share.
