Popular ribs restaurant Oklahoma Joe's is opening a location in Merrifield.
Eater tipster Jeremy spotted "coming soon" signage for the restaurant at the new mixed-use development at the Dunn Loring metro, the Shops at Avenir Place. That development boasts such restaurants as District Taco, and several others coming soon, such as a second location of Adams Morgan bar Black Squirrel.
A spokeswoman for the restaurant confirmed the location, and said they'd like to be open within five months or so, though an official date hasn't been set.
Oklahoma Joe's revealed plans for the D.C. area last fall. They want to open a location in D.C. proper as well, though no immediate details on that location were available. The restaurant chain is famous for barbecue, and even President Barack Obama has eaten there.
