Brushfire BBQ Opening an Eastside Location

Posted By on Mon, May 2, 2011 at 2:53 PM

Brushfire BBQ, the little barbecue restaurant at 2745 N. Campbell Ave. that took the Best of Tucson® award for Best Barbecue the last two years, is opening a second location.

Owner Ben Rine said today that he’s taken over an old Blockbuster Video store near the corner of 22nd Street and Kolb Road, and that work is already underway to convert it into Brushfire 2.

“We’re pretty excited. We’re going to have stuff we don’t have here, like parking,” quipped Rine today. “Business is good. We opened up in 2007, and it’s climbed ever since. It’s been a lot of hard work, but it’s paid off.”

The new location will seat about 100 people and will have a full bar. The current location seats 19 and doesn’t serve alcohol. Rine said he submitted applications for liquor licenses for both locations, though, so libations are in the works at both spots.

The new location will also feature a private dining room that seats about 110 people, said Rine.

As for employees, the new location will employ from 50 to 75 people, said Rine. He expects it to open sometime this
fall.

(Thanks for the tip, Brooke!)
