Thanks to a loyal reader we learned that YinzBurghBBQ opened recently on Baum Blvd. (it is across the street from the GetGo on Baum and Morewood). While there isn’t much available on the website, I drove past this evening and the place was packed.  It looks like it is mostly take out with one or two tables.
