Tea’s Squealer’s Smoke Shack Bar & Grill is set to welcome a visit from America’s Best Restaurants (ABR) in mid-July 2024. ABR, a national media and marketing company dedicated to spotlighting local, independently-owned restaurants, will bring its renowned ABR Roadshow to the restaurant on July 15th. During this visit, popular dishes will be showcased, and an extensive on-camera interview with the owners, the Kuipers family, will delve into the restaurant’s special role in the community. The episode will later be aired extensively on social media channels.
