and Karen Guida, opened Dee Jay’s as a night
club on October 1, 1980. The remodeled 2000 sq.
ft. former car wash was decorated with a look
of the tropics. Dewey decided to turn the lounge
into a restaurant and realized he would need a
unique and special product to stand out.
After months of testing different
products, a recipe for BBQ Ribs was developed
that has truly become Famous throughout the Ohio
Valley and beyond. Famous sports figures from
the Pittsburgh Penguins, Steelers, and Pirates,
celebrities, and musicians were
often seen at the tropical restaurant eating racks
of fall off the bone BBQ Pork Ribs, with Potato
Skins covered with cheese and bacon bits, and
delicious Homestyle Onion Ring Loaf.
