Barbecue restaurant opening express location
A barbecue joint in the area will soon open a takeout and delivery location in Grand Rapids.
Main Street BBQ in Lowell is adding an express location at 1539 Plainfield Ave. NE next door to Quinn & Tuite’s Irish Pub in the Creston neighborhood.
“We’re really excited to be part of the Creston neighborhood,” Owner Erin VanEpps said. “It’s revitalizing, and we’re excited to get in in the beginning and be part of that.”
VanEpps said the location, which she expects to open April 9, will offer takeout and catering, as well as delivery through Uber Eats.
Main Street BBQ is known for its beef brisket barbecue, wings, burgers, sandwiches and chicken, as well as an array of sides, salads and appetizers, several of which are gluten-free.
VanEpps said the takeout place will offer “pretty much the same” options as the Lowell restaurant, with additions such as adding broasted chicken and mashed potatoes.
Main Street BBQ Express also plans to deliver food to the patrons at the bar next door, which does not have a full food menu.
VanEpps said the express location will employ about 15 people.
Hours will be 11 a.m to 9 p.m. Monday-Tuesday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday-Thursday, 11 a.m. to midnight Friday-Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday.
