    Jethro's in Johnston

    Does anybody have any updates on when this location is supposed to open? Excited as it is a 2 minute drive from mi casa.

    Re: Jethro's in Johnston

    Doesn't seem like much progress has been made the past few weeks, at least from the outside. I can't imagine it will be open before the end of the year, but am looking forward to when I can do mug club and get 2 for 1 wings without having to drive to Waukee!

    Re: Jethro's in Johnston

    I would have to imagine this would be the last Jethros to go up in the metro area

    I tend to think the same. Pretty good coverage now. IMO the Drake location would be cannibalized by adding downtown location so I don't think that will happen. Southside maybe?

    I'm also a couple of minutes away. Great news because we don't have a lot of good places in this area.

    Their signs say December.

    I feel the opposite. Plenty of people come into downtown that are only looking to eat downtown. The Drake location has enough business from the northwest side of town and the Drake population that it will continue to do fine.

    yeah...you may be onto something there. Oddly, there isn't reallly a BBQ place downtown yet. Smokey D's, but their downtown locations are more for the work lunch crowd and aren't open on weekends.

    Re: Jethro's in Johnston

    I work with someone who is also a part-time waitress at the Altoona Jethro's. She told me last week they will open December 26th. I had a hard time believing that, but I drove by this afternoon and it's all enclosed and some of the facade is up... and there were people working.

    I'm pretty pumped about it too, as I'm only a few blocks away. I think the original news release on KCCI said this was the last planned metro location, (perceived) emphasis on metro. I think one would do well in Ames, but I'd rarely eat somewhere in Ames that I can get down here.

    I just think it would be taking away business from other Jethros because it's not like the south side has a crap load of BBQ places.. So people in that area if they want BBQ would be more inclined to drive to a different location
