The same restaurant group that brought us The Loop, and Five West, is gearing up for a December opening of Rochester's newest barbeque restaurant.

Smoak, from the Rocket Restaurant Group, will feature oak-wood smoked meats, and according to their Facebook page, things are moving along quickly on their West Circle Drive location (it'll be between Sleep Number beds and the second Tap House, which is still being built).

Finishing up the construction by the end of November, then time to train new staff puts opening early in December.
