Mary Isbell-Hansen, owner of Bierocks, Brats n BBQ Just like she always does, Mary Isbell-Hansen closed her Bierocks, Brats n’ BBQ at 1225 W. Douglas in Delano to go run her longtime food booth. Roadhouse Bar and Grill, at the Kansas State Fair.

The difference this year: She’s not reopening. At least not in Delano.

Isbell-Hansen, who opened the restaurant in November of 2010, said the customer volume in Delano hasn’t been high enough to sustain her business. She’s looking for a different space, preferably in northeast or northwest Wichita, to move the business. But she has to move quickly. One of her busiest seasons in Thanksgiving, when she sells smoked turkeys and hams, and she wants to have a space in time to get to work on those orders.

She promised to let me know when she finds a new spot. For now, she’s headed to the Tulsa State Fair.
