Kansas City, Kan., got a new kind of theme restaurant when the Backfire BBQ Featuring Orange County Choppers opened Monday.
“Backfire BBQ is bikes, burgers and barbecue. And it is a phenomenal collection of antique cars, antique jukeboxes, phenomenal neon signs,” creator Steve Schussler told the Kansas City Star.
He’s also responsible for the T-Rex Cafe, Legends, and Rainforest Café concepts. Orange County Choppers CEO Paul Teutul Sr. and his two sons were at the grand opening.
The 8,300 square-foot restaurant and retail space seats 300 people amid custom-built choppers by Orange County Choppers, an open flame “hog pit,” 14 plasma televisions and artwork. It will have live music Thursday through Saturday nights, according to the newspaper. The concept was in development for three years.
The menu is classic barbecue and homemade sides. And it’s some barbecue -- a smoker with a 1,400-pound capacity.
