Fatballs (Bayou Bar & Grill) From Bar Rescue Has Closed

Fatballs in Jacksonville, Florida, which appeared on season 6 of Bar Rescue, has closed.   The bar last posted on Facebook in May 2019, and they confirmed that they closed in late May 2019.   Owner Tony Azer also confirmed Fatballs was closed on his personal Facebook page and it appears he is now involved with a sandwich shop.

Fatballs was renamed to Bayou Bar & Grill by Jon Taffer, but the bar changed back to Fatballs after the makeover.  At the time, owner Tony Azer said he changed the name back due to his licenses being in that name, decreasing sales with the new name, and customers thinking Fatballs closed due to the name change.

The Bar Rescue for Fatballs was done in January 2018 and the episode aired in July 2018.  Since the makeover, there weren't too many reviews and Fatballs had a few bad restaurant inspections.  If you are interested in the detailed update done for the episode, here is that post.  Fatballs is now marked as 'Closed' on the Bar Rescue Updates page.
