KC Hipster Chicken Shack Shuts Down

Local scenesters loved this place but trendy accolades weren't enough to keep it open amid the ongoing pandemic and strict rules mostly targeting small biz. 

Here's the apropos swan song from another failing local biz . . .

Mexican barbecue spot Poi-ō will be closing its doors for good on Nov. 28

Mexican barbecue spot Poi-ō will be closing to the public next Saturday. The restaurant, known for its wood-fired chicken, was opened by local chef Carlos Mortera and his father in 2018. Poi-ō has been long adored by The Pitch, and was featured in 2019's Best of Kansas City editorial picks, as well as chosen by food writer April Fleming for our Eat This Now column.

It was good but not that good. It does not take a lot of culinary know-how to spatchcock and spice a chicken and then cook it on a kitchen grill.

So stupid Lucas and the rest of KC are wanting local people to open businesses and have an opportunity in life but they put them out with their ridiculous COVID rules. Good goin Lucas. Again you are just that a nazi dictator!!! It's true. Do your research on this virus folks. Fauci said they were going to release this virus and they did. This was done by nazi globalists together with China. Thank God for Fauci's big mouth. Think the US is not involved? Think again.

Lucas is killing all the white and Mexican businesses so when China flu joe and his hoe allow his black people to open all new businesses with shit loads of free money all in the name of racism. White and Mexican peoples need never try to open a business again.
