Hoochie’s reopens at Hickory and Industrial

After months of renovating and moving, Hoochie’s is now open at 214 E. Hickory St., just a few blocks away from its original location on Bell Avenue.

The location at Hickory and Industrial Street, which formerly housed Burgeusa Burger, has undergone a makeover inside and out. The exterior is now brick instead of bright orange, with wood paneling and a bar inside.

Owner Sam Solomon decided to move the business in February to get more foot traffic and more space for customers indoors, he said after announcing the move.
