WICHITA — South-side residents regularly complain that when new restaurants come to the city, they don't come to their area.
A well-known Wichita restaurant soon will be expanding there, though.
Carey Maurer is opening a second B&C Barbeque at 2308 S. Meridian, which is just north of Pawnee and Meridian.
The current B&C is at Third and Washington downtown.
A few things are motivating Maurer, he says.
"Just opportunity, I suppose. . . . It seems like the economy has gotta come back in Wichita."
Also, there's not much barbecue competition in that area, he says.
"There's really not anything down that way."
The new restaurant will be slightly different than the downtown B&C.
