Two Wichita restaurants are expanding over the next few days with second locations.
One serves wings. Once serves barbecue.
▪ Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is finally opening its northeast location at 11 a.m. today (Thursday, Oct. 13) at 2244 N. Greenwich, just a few doors down from the new Meddys at the Village at Greenwich. It will be giving away free barbecue for a year to three people and offering several other specials and discounts during the next four weeks. The first Wichita Dickey’s opened in October 2014 at 2768 N. Maize Road. Hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. For more information, call 316-634-6328.
▪ Wings & Things is taking a second try at a second location, and it will open at noon Saturday at 2624 E. 21st St. The hot wings restaurant is owned by former NFL star and Wichita native Kamerion Wimbley, who opened its original location in 2013 at 2800 E. Central. He tried a second location in 2014, opening at 331 W. 31st St. South, but that restaurant has since closed. Opening-day specials will include 20 percent off for Wichita State University students with an ID. People who buy 12 wings also can get six free. Wimbley will be on site for the grand opening from noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday. The restaurant’s hours will be 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays.
