Smokin’ Bob’s BBQ coming to Magers Crossing

Posted online

Smokin’ Bob’s BBQ LLC is adding a second restaurant in Springfield.

Owner Bob Craver said a September opening is targeted for his new location at 2100 W. Republic Road in Magers Crossing.

“The new location’s going to have double the smoke capacity,” he said. “When we have large catering events, that’s going to be better.”

Similar to his current restaurant at 3309 E. Sunshine St., Craver said the new location would serve fresh barbecue. The restaurant is open until it sells out each day, with menu offerings that include sandwiches and ribs.

Craver said he entered a lease for undisclosed terms to occupy 2,200 square feet at 2100 W. Republic Road on the far east side of Magers Crossing’s newest addition.

Smokin’ Bob’s BBQ is slated to join downtown’s Crave Cookie Dough, which signed a lease to occupy 1,380 square feet in the newest Magers Crossing building. Crave is planning to open in the building by the end of the summer. The 14,000-square-foot building is the third in Magers Crossing, which has a tenant list that includes Great American Taco Co., The Roost Bar & Grill and Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care.

Craver started Smokin’ Bob’s as a food truck in January 2013. Three years later, he made the transition to a brick-and-mortar location with the opening on East Sunshine Street, according to past Springfield Business Journal reporting.
