Buck’s Racks and Ribs(Greenville, SC) is currently involved in what could be construed as a 1st Amendment battle with Greenville County in South Carolina. They’re a recently opened sexy restaurant that is operating at the location of what was previously a topless nightclub. The new owners and operators of the restaurant are not affiliated with the owners of the strip club that operated previously.

In this article written a few hours ago today June 1st, 2017 you can see it’s reported that Buck’s was issued a restraining order in FAVOR of Buck’s allowing it to keep it’s doors open.
