Another Trendy Restaurant for La Porte

(La Porte, IN) - The City of La Porte is going to have another trendy restaurant. 


Doc’s Smokehouse is already operating in places like Chicago, Indianapolis and Crown Point.  The restaurant will be inside a strip mall to be constructed along Pine Lake Avenue across from Culver’s, said Bert Cook, Executive Director of the Greater LaPorte Economic Advancement Partnership.  Several houses once stood on the property and they were cleared last year for redevelopment.  “Doc’s will be one of the main tenants within that center,” he said.


Cook said Doc’s Smokehouse, known for its barbecue and bourbon based beverages, will build upon La Porte becoming more of a destination for people wanting to eat out.  “They’re an extremely popular restaurant and they’re growing quickly.  We are very pleased they chose to open here,” Cook said.


Cook said construction of the strip center will begin sometime in the coming weeks and could be finished before the end of the year.
