Does it really matter? Sounds kind of racist to me. Anybody can cook BBQ!

MDW, The new Business will be a BBQ as one of the above posters stated. They already have a place in Palos called "BonaPit" on Harlem ,ave. I was talking to the owner the other day and he was telling me that his Family owns 7 Waffle Houses in Chicago area and BonaPit,He was telling me they want to expand to Midlothian because of the Business opurtunity and parking.They will be where Ken and Dicks used to be and the unit next door. He also told me that his prices will be decent for the area. All we can do is give him a chance, I'm told BonaPit is quite good though,never had them myself.

That's good news. I've heard good things about BonAPit but never had a chance to try them yet.
So are they going by two sisters or by the tupperware place near where Ken&Dicks was?

From what he told me 5yr is that he took over Ken&Dicks and the unit next to there. If you go past, the overhead sign is already up. He has the windows blocked with paper. He said the Village has been really good with him and is looking forward to opening. I asked him about compitition between him and Hog Wild. He said he was a Smokehouse and Hog Wild a BBQ so should be no comparison. Although I like some things at HW, their Rib Tips taste like they were boiled and dunked in sauce.They have decent Brisket.

The hubby got their rib tips two or three times. He thought it was just a bad batch the once, but after a couple tries I think he came to a similar conclusion.

Personally I only eat certain items there but that's because I'm not a BBQ sauce fan. They did make a mean pot roast I had a couple years back. I tend to like the stuff they aren't written about for like the Chicken Pita or their oven browns. They also have friendly staff. If the new place can have that too they'll do well.

I prefer smoked meat too My BIL built his own smoker. He has parties all summer with that thing. He makes the best ribs I ever ate.

It won't last, but not because of the owners. The owner of Tiffany Plaza is an absolute ash hole of a landlord. Shoemake is the biggest jerk of a LL in the area. Businesses don't last there very long thanks to his strong arm tactics. I've been to,d he likes to go into the businesses after hours when the tenants aren't there and demands freebies from them all. I just hope the owners negotiated a solid lease, otherwise this wont end well for the new business. I wish them absolute success.

That's awful to hear.

I was by there last night and saw they weren't the only new change. There's a sign up for a business where the old florist shop was. On the main pylon there was a sign for another new business too, though I didn't remember to see where in the strip mall that was.

From wht I seen earlier 5 yr. other than the Smokehouse, there's a Assurance company and a Consignment shop where Susan B used to be.

Nice to see a new business that may worth going to. Still hoping within the next 5-10 years to not have to leave town and drive to other towns like Tinley to go to a good grocery store. Well at least they trimmed the weed fields along Cicero.

Hardee's has their temporary sign up ("now hiring") at their location at the old Krispy Kreme building. Construction crews working in old Family Pride building for the new Dollar Tree, word is someone is looking to move into the old Advanced Data Systems place...Hog Wild CD Vodka (potentially) & Barto's adding on to their existing property (doesn't look like they are going anywhere, contrary to rumor), a few small businesses opening up shop as mentioned above (Smokehouse, Consignment, Mama's Villa).

It's a start...
