BBQ restaurant shifts location

JOHNSTOWN — A Richland Township barbecue joint has relocated across Scalp Avenue.

But now, its founder says, customers won’t have to leave their cars to pick up the sauce-covered ribs, pulled pork and sausage bombers that have made the restaurant a success.

The sale of the eatery’s former Bel-Air Plaza location shifted Rohde’s Roadhouse Bar B Que to 801 Scalp Ave. in the Centre One Plaza, where a drive-thru window and delivery service will be offered, Tom Rohde said Thursday.

“The menu hasn’t changed,” he said, noting the restaurant will still offer barbecued foods, wings and more.

Rohde has set up picnic tables outside for diners but said he is still working on options to offer indoor seating.

“Hopefully, we’ll be able to remodel an extra spot inside the plaza into a dining room,” he said. “But for now, things are going good. The ribs have been flying out the door since we reopened.”

Deliveries could begin in the next week, Rohde said. The restaurant is open Wednesday through Sunday.

Rohde said he also hopes to open a location in Somerset County by the end of the year.
