Patrons went to the Spicy Pickle Restaurant located on Zebulon Rd in Rocky Mount only to find out that it was shut down by the NC Department of Revenue.
The sign states that the property within was seized for non payment of taxes.
Owner Sharif Elsayed states that the Department of Revenue shut him down because they wanted him to pay near $9000.00 in taxes from the PREVIOUS owner. Mr. Elsayed stood his ground. He has sorted out the situation and will re-open on Tuesday.
Calls to Mrs Moore at DOR were unreturned
