The Dinosaur Bar-B-Que restaurant chain plans to open its next location in Chicago in what will be the Syracuse-based company’s first eatery outside the Northeast.

Company spokesman Robert Baker says the company has signed a lease for a location on West Weed Street and should open the new restaurant in 2015. The site is a former nightclub northwest of the Loop.

Founder and CEO John Stage opened his first biker bar-barbeque restaurant in downtown Syracuse in 1988.

He has since opened restaurants throughout New York State and New Jersey.

The newest Dinosaur opened last month in Buffalo.
