CONFIRMED: New BBQ Restaurant Planned For Dorchester

The Times can confirm that a new restaurant will be on Dorchester's main street.  

Some reports say that could happen by the end of this month.

According to official village documents and several sources, a new barbeque restaurant plans to set up shop in the building that most recently housed Ben's Iron Grill II.  

In recent years, the building on the east side of Dorchester's main street also housed Rough Reins, R Lounge, The Longhorn Saloon, Pit Stop, and Last Call Bar and Grill.

The name of the new restaurant: Big T's BBQ Pit Stop.

A special meeting will be held Monday, July 18 at 5:30 p.m., at Village Hall to consider the liquor license application of the BBQ Pit Stop's owner -- Timothy J. Vejraska.



  1. Glad to see a new business coming to town. I am not a fan of BBQ but wish the new owners a long & prosperous business venture.

  2. It would be so nice to have a local alternative to the chain restaurants in Lincoln.

  3. LOVE this news. Dorchester is such a special town, we need more people taking risks to grow our special little village, not spoiled brats who take their ball and go home

  4. Hope they can make a go of it!

  5. Nice! Make Dorchester great again!!
