PENFIELD, N.Y. (WROC) — Chicken wing lovers rejoice!
Bar-Bill, a beloved restaurant and tavern with two locations in the Buffalo area, has applied to expand into the Rochester region.
Town of Penfield officials confirmed to News 4’s sister station, News 8, on Thursday that an application was received from Bar-Bill to open a location at 1129 Empire Boulevard, the site formerly occupied by McGregor’s.
According to officials, the proposed project does not include any significant changes to the building or site, only cosmetic updates and new signage.
There will be a public hearing on the application on March 16. Pending approval, Bar-Bill operators are hoping to open the establishment this summer.
