Turkey Leg Hut declares bankruptcy

In the wake of financial struggles and legal issues, the Turkey Leg Hut has filed for bankruptcy. The owner, Nakia Holmes, announced that they are looking to make changes to the business in an effort to reposition it.

The filing took place in the 127th Judicial District Court in Harris County on Tuesday, March 26. According to court documents, Holmes and former co-owner Lyndell Price were ordered by a judge to pay over $900,000 to a former business partner, Steve Rogers. The strange circumstances surrounding a fire at the restaurant’s business office and ongoing legal issues have led to these financial troubles.

In a court hearing on Tuesday, a receiver was appointed to handle the restaurant’s assets and funds to help pay off debts. The Turkey Leg Hut is currently facing a debt of $2 million in state tax revenue and the lawsuit from Rogers.

Despite these challenges, the Turkey Leg Hut remains a popular spot in the community since its opening in 2016. It has become a focal point for discussions on race and gentrification in Houston. With this move, the restaurant hopes to put a stop to collection efforts while continuing discussions with financial stakeholders to find solutions for its financial struggles.
