The owner of Shuford's Barbecue on Signal Mountain Road said he is looking for a new site nearby after the city condemned the present location at the foot of Signal Mountain.
Recently, a mud slide wiped out the Subway restaurant next door.
Shuford's is backed up to the same steep hillside.
He said he had plans to look at three different locations on Signal Mountain Road and was working on some catering jobs.
He said, "Everybody has to be safe. It's all good."
