WICHITA — Wichitans soon will have a taste of Chicago without having to make the trip.

Brian and Liz Bathgate are opening Big B's Beef at 4628 S. Seneca to serve Chicago-style food, such as hot dogs and pizza puffs.

That's the former Fire It Up Pit BBQ spot on Seneca just north of 47th Street.

The Bathgates moved here from Chicago four years ago and will order all their meat and bread from there.

"Our specialty will be Italian beef," Liz Bathgate says. "It's a finely paper thin roast beef sliced on a hearty Italian bun."

Big B's is named after a nickname of Brian Bathgate's. Liz Bathgate says the restaurant is her husband's dream.

It will seat about 45 and have a drive-through. There also will be delivery for local businesses.

Big B's opens Jan. 7 and will be open daily for lunch and dinner except for Sundays, when it will be closed for private parties.
