Local BBQ fave bores into new location

Four. That’s how many Barrel & Boar locations there will be after the Uptown Westerville restaurant opens. It will join the Gahanna, North Market, and Newark locations. 

“Its an incredible opportunity in the heart of the city I grew up in! We are a family friendly low country gastropub with craft cocktails and Ohio craft beer. It will be a great compliment to the other businesses in uptown Westerville,” said owner Stan Riley.

The restaurant is planned for the 8 State building which was originally a theater but was most recently occupied by an Amish furniture store. 

Not only is the expansion great for the restaurant, but it’s also huge for Westerville as Barrel & Boar will bring the city’s alcohol-serving establishments count up to an even 10.

The Columbus barbecue enterprise has been a staple in Columbus for over 30 years. Keep doing you, Barrel & Boar.
