nGrills Goin' Wild opens new restaurant today on Fruitville Pike, just north of Lancaster city.
Grills Goin' Wild is opening today at 1325 Fruitville Pike. The restaurant, located at the intersection of Manheim Pike, Fruitville Pike and Keller Avenue, takes a spot formerly occupied by Hot Diggity Dog.
Grills Goin' Wild features pulled pork, roast beef and chicken sandwiches as well as burgers and hot dogs. It also has fries, soups and salads.
The burgers and hot dogs come in 17 varieties and the sandwiches include some interesting combinations, such as The King, which includes grilled peanut butter, banana, bacon and honey served on brioche Texas toast.
The restaurant is owned by Don Bouder and Tyler Edmonds, who had previously operated Grills Goin' Wild as just a food truck. Edmonds is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and a former owner of the Watering Trough in Mount Joy.
Bouder said that with the opening of the restaurant, the food truck would be limited to special events.
Bouder said the 1,700-square-foot restaurant mostly needed cleanup, painting and cosmetic work before it was ready to be unveiled. Grills Goin' Wild will have seating for 46. It has seven employees.
Hours: 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m to 8 p.m. Sunday. 617-2262.
Baron Barbers opened earlier this month at 56 S. Main St., Manheim. The barber shop's services include haircuts, color, highlight and hot lather shaves.
Baron Barbers is owned and operated by Glenn Snader and Chris Heiserman. Snader has been a hairstylist for 25 years, and for the past eight years has been teaching techniques at the American Beauty Academy, Lancaster. Heiserman is a recent graduate of the academy.

The Black Comb, a 1950s-style barbershop, is opening Thursday at 141 N. Duke St., Lancaster.
In addition to haircuts, the shop will offer hot towel, straight-razor shaves. Owner Jon Leitzel is a graduate of Champ's Barber School and has recently specialized in giving straight-razor shaves. He is joined at The Black Comb by barber Matt Cooke.
The Black Comb takes a spot near Square One Coffee that formerly housed a barbershop. Leitzel has overseen some painting and has also added some new equipment.
As part of his effort to make it fun to get a haircut, Leitzel offers each of his customers a complimentary beer from Lancaster Brewing Company.

The outdoor patio at Lancaster Brewing Company, 302 N. Plum St., is opening this weekend.
The space for the patio was created when the city realigned Walnut Street by eliminating the merge lane from southbound Plum Street onto westbound Walnut Street.
The construction work created a wide sidewalk along Walnut Street, which Lancaster Brewing Company is turning in to a beer patio that has seating for 40 customers. 391-6258, lancasterbrewing.com.
