A popular Knoxville barbecue restaurant is expanding.
Dead End BBQ will open a second full-service location this fall in Maryville. It will be located at the corner of Broadway and Lamar Alexander Parkway, near Maryville High School.
The restaurant owner says they are looking forward to serving Maryville and some busy Friday nights.
"Maryville's got a great tradition out there in football and we know we're going to have our hands full. It's going to be great though. We have a Rebel burger that we do here for West High School and we've given over $11,000 to West High School in the past three years, and we're going to do that for Maryville also," said Owner George Ewart.
Dead End plans to begin construction on the new restaurant in late April or early May, and be ready to open sometime in October or November.
