Pharr, TexasBar-B-Cutie Smokehouse continues to expand. This summer, the barbecue restaurant chain is planning to open a new location in the Rio Grande Valley.

Bar-B-Cutie Smokehouse debuted in 2011 in McAllen, Texas. The new Pharr location, currently under development at the corner of South Jackson Road and West Kelly Avenue, near At Home and Costco, is scheduled to open in May. The company is also planning to open three additional locations in San Antonio by 2018.

“Pharr Bar-B-Cutie Smokehouse restaurant is sort-of a ‘Field of Dreams’. We’ve been training staff for this location for a few years now without even knowing exactly where the building would eventually be located. Our patience has paid off, and our ‘Pharr dream’ will soon become a reality,” Orlie Ochoa, McAllen, TX BBC Smokehouse owner, said in prepared remarks.

The upcoming Pharr location enables builders to adapt a strategic architectural development of the space, including a kitchen engineered to maximize efficiency in labor and equipment layout; drive-thru lane customized to give customers easy in and out access; interior and exterior that showcase local products and ingredient transparency, as well as draft beers, craft spirits, and regional drinks bar area.
