Laurel to get another new restaurant

Laurel will soon be gaining a new dining venue. Unfortunately, the city will be losing a long-time favorite eatery in the process. Vinnie’s Deli, located in the Ricci Express compound is closing on Dec. 2. But the news isn’t all bad. It’s closing to make way for Dickey’s BBQ. Dickey’s BBQ will take over the space now housing Vinnie’s Deli. Dickey’s is a national franchise that has over 600 locations. Dickey’s BBQ smokes all of its meats on site the same way they have since the first restaurant was founded in 1941. More details will be coming as the remodel progresses and the opening approaches.
