After seven years of serving up its delicious barbecue-style food and sides to customers in Iowa City, Mosley's Barbecue and Provisions is for sale.

According to the Iowa City Press-Citizen, it is located at 525 S. Gilbert St. The business opened in 2015 in the former Old Capitol Brew Works location. Its owner Sean Keller told the Press-Citizen this is not the end for Mosley's which is named after his beloved dog.

Despite his "deep, personal connection" to the town, Keller says the closing in Iowa City simply means they plan to focus more attention on a North Liberty location (seen below) that opened in 2018.

It's just time for me to focus on the North Liberty location and work in and serve more closely the community where I live

This also allows that location to open on Tuesdays, making the restaurant and catering business a seven-day-a-week operation, and a hub for special events.

It appears the Iowa City restaurant will remain open until it's sold, which according to Keller, shouldn't take long because of everything the location offers. It features the restaurant's signature barbecue food and Keller also touted Mosley's "communal-style" tables, where strangers could meet and get to know one another by dining together.
