P. Red's BBQ on Chattahoochee near Howell Mill.

Oy, always had them high on my list of examples on how NOT to expand. Liked them a lot when they had one location. They went up to three or four and thought they were okay at best. Then they went back down to one.

Let's hope they learned something first time around.

Drove down Chattahoochee on the way to FLIP Saturday afternoon and saw the words "BBQ" and the always popular plane-parts sticking out of the roof of a building as I drove by... must be this place...

BB's Bagels (McFarland Road in south Forsyth) announced on twitter this morning that they are opening a second location. Their tweet said "Old Milton and State Bridge Rd". I'm not sure exactly where they are talking about, since Old Milton kinda turns into State Bridge if you continue driving east. But I thought I would pass this along.

Can we handle yet another frozen yogurt place?

"Red Mango" coming soon banner in the strip on the north west corner of Clairmont and North Decatur Road.  I think this was a T-Mobile store most recently.

Hmmm this could be good news!  I wonder if they are buying back their old New York Bagel spot.  That place has gone way downhill since the split.

Yes would be great news. That's an interesting theory about NY Bagel--though not sure that quite fits the description.

Roots, I was thinking Madras Chettinad/Publix shopping center perhaps?

I had lunch at Madras Chettinad today and didn't notice anything that looked like BB's. But I also didn't look past Publix.

And speaking of BB's... what is their relationship, if any, to the other bagel joints around here? For example... Essex in Johns Creek is very similar. Or the NY Bagels ya'll speak of.

uTOpia can answer more accurately, but it sounded like BBs supplied Essex the dough or something along those lines, which explains the similarity

Drove by the ex NY Bagel place today, there is a BB Bagel coming soon sign. Windows were covered in paper and there was a construction truck outside. @Roots, the BB Bagel place is in the strip mall just before the Kroger on the left going out St. Bridge or is it Old Milton? Just wondering if OM changes names to SB there at Jones Bridge? Drat, the Mcfarland location is still closer to home, but, traffic is not as bad if I use Hopewell rather than H9.

85.6 percent sure at the aforesaid Publix shopping center.

Wife may have to go to original and get the scoop---and a dozen bagels. I would think since they are taking over a place that housed the same, hopefully should not take long to re-open. Closer for me, but then again time wise, the straight shot down 400 wasn't so bad. I'll run into more traffic resistance at the new location, but still verra happy.

Now if I can get Antico, Fox Bros, Chang, or Dutch Monkey to open a second location near me.

Well not Monkey because I really, really, really want to despise that place.

During a drive-by today, I saw a new banner for BB's bagels hanging on the building that used to be New York Bagel - that's State Bridge Rd sort of in front of the Kroger shopping center.

BB's on State Bridge is having a soft opening next Thursday. Had lunch at McFarland today. They said they are doing quite a bit remodeling and cleaning up.

Thanks for the info, guys. Like Corky, the McFarland location will be a LOT closer to me. Still cool to see them expand. This restaurant has a lot of character. I'm glad to see them doing well.

I'll say this though... my wife has always felt like their McFarland location is dirty, which makes her uncomfortable eating there. As a result, I haven't had a sitdown meal (non-takeout) there in many months. Perhaps the State Bridge location will ease her concerns.

And yes, Old Milton changes to State Bridge before Kimball Bridge. The Publix has a State Bridge address, as done Madras Chettinaad.

Bride was driving by the old Alpine Bakery and said a "coming soon" sign was up for a deli, butcher, bakery or sumtin'. I was wondering perhaps NY Butcher, though nothing listed as forthcoming on that site.

Anyone with more deets or verifying the name?
