BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – A new locally owned and operated restaurant is setting up shop on a busy stretch in Boardman.

The Youngstown BBQ Company posted on social media that it’s opening soon on Market Street in Spartan Square across the street from Panera Bread.

According to the Youngstown BBQ Company’s website, the company currently operates as a mobile business offering on-site cooking with a handcrafted BBQ trailer. The next pop-up event will be at Birdfish Brewing this Sunday from noon until 7 p.m., or until they are sold out.

It also states it serves everything from low and slow whole hog to blazing hot wood-fired steaks. Owner Jeremy Pasquale said they offer good, old-fashioned barbecue.

“[We] put a lot of time, energy and love into it, which makes us a little different,” Pasquale said.

There is no word yet on an exact opening date, but Pasquale said they hope to open by midsummer. The opening date will be determined upon the completion of a collection of permits and health inspections.

Pasquale said the location sat empty for approximately 11 years.
