WICHITA — Kyle Estep wasn't looking to open a bar and restaurant in his wife Nancy's hometown of Moundridge, but that's what he's now doing.
"We're just opening Quincy's No. 2 out there," says Estep, whose first Quincy's Bar & Grill is near 21st and West streets.
Estep is opening in the 6,000-square-foot brick building that formerly was home to Block 32 Eatery & Pub in Moundridge.
He says the building was built in 2007 as something of a gift to the community.
"A couple of individuals felt that it was time to get a full-service restaurant in town," Estep says.
"They spared no expense on stuff. It's a beautiful facility."
There's a main level, a second floor meeting space that can hold 60 and "a bunkerlike basement."
"They just shut it down about a year ago," Estep says. "It's been kind of mothballed is the best way to describe it."
