A barbecue restaurant that had been poised to open today, Wednesday, March 21, has pushed back its opening slightly.
OinkADoodleMoo Barbecue’s new Kettering location at 912 E. Dorothy Lane is now scheduled to open at 11 a.m. Thursday, March 22, according to OinkADoodleMoo owner Steven Meyer. Equipment issues prompted the delay, Meyer said.
The Kettering restaurant is the second new or relocated eatery within the past six weeks for the locally based chain, and it marks a return engagement of sorts. OinkADoodleMoo previously operated a restaurant at 3910 Far Hills Ave. in Kettering which shut down in August 2015 after failing to re-negotiate its lease.
The new restaurant is located in space that previously housed the original Dayton Beer Company taproom. It will seat 35 to 40 inside and will employ about 13, and will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday. DoorDash delivery will be available within a five-mile radius of the restaurant, Meyer said.
Last month, OinkADoodleMoo opened a restaurant in a facility near the food court in Area A of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, after operating out of a mobile trailer since 2010 at WPAFB.
OinkADoodleMoo was founded in 2009 with the opening of an Englewood restaurant that later relocated to the Randolph Plaza. In addition to the Miamisburg and Randolph Plaza/Clayton restaurants, OinkADoodleMoo operates a location in the KeyBank Tower lobby in downtown Dayton.
Meyer has a wealth of restaurant experience. He was one of the first franchisees of Penn Station East Coast Subs, has served as managing partner of Longhorn Steakhouse, and as area developer and operating partner for Cici’s Pizza.
