Several months ago, it first came out that a pair of barbecue joints may be joined by a third location. Now we have learned that this will indeed be taking place.
According to an article from Eater Boston, Blue Ribbon BBQ will be opening in Dedham, with the lease being signed last week for a space in Dedham Square. An exact address has not yet been given for the upcoming place, but Eater says that it will be much larger than the West Newton and Arlington locations, with a seating capacity somewhere around or above 50. In June, EB interviewed owner Ron Stoloff, who said that he had been eyeing potential sites for a new shop somewhere in the local area.
Blue Ribbon BBQ opened on Washington Street in West Newton in 1995, while the Mass. Ave. location in Arlington opened its doors in 1997. The website for both locations is at http://www.blueribbonbbq.com/
