A new restaurant opening soon in Butler County plans to offer the same array of options as its Montgomery County counterpart.

Dreams BBQ is set to debut in the coming weeks at 6025 Dixie Highway in Fairfield, according to co-owner Hikmat Khalaf.

Khalaf, a Miamisburg resident, opened 3 Guys BBQ in Moraine in 2011. The menu, which will be the same at Dreams BBQ, includes sandwiches, 10-inch Philly steaks, chicken wings, chicken tenders, sausages, burritos and cheeseburgers, including a bacon-and-eggs cheeseburger for $7.99. Smoked meat options include beef ribs, beef brisket, chopped beef, shredded chicken and turkey ribs.

A Mac ‘n’ Fries Fried Chicken Sandwich comes with mac ‘n’ cheese and fried chicken, plus french fries pickles and costs $5.99. Kids meals are $4.99 each.

Home made sides are numerous and include everything from jambalaya rice, mac and cheese, baked beans and candied yams to mashed potatoes and gravy, red beans & rice, green beans and potato salad. Side dishes include fries, onion rings, okra, jalapeno poppers and mozzarella sticks.

Khalaf, a longtime chef himself who said he , said he signed a 3-year-lease for the restaurant in Fairfield because it is his favorite city and because of what he said is a lack of similar options in the area.

“There is no restaurant around us doing the same food, specially smoked,” he said.”The closest one is about 35 minutes away.”

The new restaurant plans to hire four employees, Khalaf said.
