That went up fast.

tarheel.qHealth types say there’s now about 100 people sick from eating at at Tarheel Q, located at 6835 West U.S. 64 in Lexington, NC, several days before becoming ill.

A sign posted on the door Wednesday said the restaurant would close until Monday, June 29, “to ensure all areas of our operation are of the highest standard.”

Though inspectors are still working to figure out the source of contamination, the restaurant was asked to clean and sanitize all surfaces including the walk-in refrigerator.
