How this place is not getting sued is a surprise to me.”
Well, they actually were sued. As it turns out former Dallas BBQ employees decided to give the company some competition and open their own restaurant in Harlem. The problem is that they ‘straight jacked’ Dallas BBQ for their logo and most of their menu.
Dallas BBQ in turn sued Harlem BBQ for trademark infringement and misappropriation of trade secrets. You can view the complaint here.
Shortly thereafter Harlem BBQ removed the name from their awning and replaced it with a new (albeit similar) name and original logo.
