Dinosaur BBQ expanding to Chicago

A popular Syracuse barbeque restaurant is expanding.

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que reportedly plans to open a location in Chicago. A Chicago food website reports Dinosaur just signed a lease for its first Midwest location on Weed Street in the Windy City.

The new location will likely be open in the spring of 2015.

This will be the 9th Dinosaur Bar-B-Que location. Dinosaur has locations in Syracuse, Buffalo, New York City, New Jersey and Connecticut.
