Read this earlier this AM
More than a rumor


http://journalstar.com/business/local/o ... e5495.html

Oklahoma Joe's founder Joe Davidson on Monday confirmed that that there is a local partnership that plans to open one of the iconic restaurants in Lincoln.

According to an agenda item on Thursday's Historic Preservation Commission meeting, Oklahoma Joe's will be subleasing space from Yowie's Lodge, a sports bar in the Tool House building at Eighth and Q streets.

Let's remember this is no longer the BBQ place in KC that won all the awards. That now Joe's Kansas City. The owner's split up and the one franchising is the ones from Oklahoma. I have no idea if they are as good as what we all think of in KC.

A nationally known barbecue restaurant is coming to the Haymarket.

Oklahoma Joe's founder Joe Davidson on Monday confirmed that that there is a local partnership that plans to open one of the iconic restaurants in Lincoln.

He said plans are to open the restaurant by early summer, although he declined to provide any other details.

Article on how the new version of Oklahoma Joe's came to be, along with Joe's Kansas City. The one coming to Lincoln does not have the same recipes or menu as what is now Joe's Kansas City:

I'm completely confused by this. The original Oklahoma Joe's was started by Joe Davidson. Eventually he met the current owners of Kansas City's "Joe's Kansas City" and decided to do something else in Texas and sold the business to the Kansas City folk. They basically kept the same menu other than something to do with bologna according to Wikipedia. Then Joe decided to start back up in the bbq business dealing with franchises but said he wouldn't do anything in the Kansas City area. So, the original formula is Joe Davidsons? Did the new owners tweak something? I've been to Joe's KC and Oklahoma Joe's (when it was that name) and loved it each time. Is Oklahoma Joe's completely different?

Yes they are completely separate now. The ones in KC are the ones that really took it to a new level and got all the awards. Like the Z Man sandwich.
