Flaming Joe's closes on the South Hill, may re-open
Flaming Joe's wing restaurants has closed down there location on the South Hill at 2620 E. 29th Ave. From what we have heard this closure is actually because the restaurant's owners have another place where they can own the building as opposed to leasing and hope to re-open there in the near future.
