Roscoe's @ Cedarwood Center closed
Rochester barbecue baron Steve Ross closed his Cedarwood Plaza location of Roscoe's Root Beer & Ribs for good Sunday.
Don't get too upset, BBQ fans. The Original Roscoe's is still smoking at 603 Fourth Street Southeast.
And work to create the new streamlined Roscoe's Express is underway at in the Chateau Center, just south of Chateau Theaters at North Broadway and 37th Street in northeast Rochester.
Ross says he expects to fire up the R-Express in mid-June or so. The scent of smoked beef, pork and chicken topped with the Rosses’ sauce to open in the space that has been empty since the TCBY yogurt place closed its doors in 2007. At Express, customers will get their choices of meat and sides and be served as they walk along the counter. It will also offer take-out and limited seating.
