From OKC Talk – Provision Concepts, proprietors of Broadway 10 Bar & Chophouse, Hatch Early Mood Food, Sidecar Barley & Wine Bar, Birra Birra Craft Pizzeria, Bibi’s Ice Cream, and Chicken Foot continue to grow their footprint with an ambitious new restaurant and entertainment venue: Bandee’s BBQ.
Bandee’s will transform the former 2-story Republic Gastropub space in Tract 30 in the Chisholm Creek development on Memorial Road between Western and Penn.
Experienced with live music at the popular Sidecar also in Tract 30, owners Aaron Soward and Jeff Dixon will install a large stage upstairs and a smaller version on the main level for live music performances. The upstairs setting will include an extensive house sound and lighting system.
Overhead doors on the ground floor will open to a large mostly covered patio area with heaters that will provide ample seating amid extensive landscaping.
A dedicated ToGo transaction counter will facilitate curbside pickup and delivery.
Large bars on each level are also in the plans.
Jeff Dixon told OKCTalk, “There isn’t enough room in the existing kitchen to do barbeque right so we are building an exterior smokehouse just north of the parking garage. We have three one thousand gallon offset smokers being built right now as well as two rotisseries. Nothing beats prime brisket cooked slow and low all day with real wood.”
Bandee’s hopes to open in May. Read more on OKC Talk.
