CHAMPAIGN — Black Dog Smoke & Ale House plans to open a second location, in the former railroad freight station in downtown Champaign, the restaurant's owners said.
The popular barbecue restaurant opened in the former Tod & John's tavern space at 201 N. Broadway Ave., U, in 2009, and has attracted crowds and rave reviews since then.
