Big B’s Beef expands catering, changes hours

WICHITA — The “more convenient, centralized location” that Liz Bathgate said she was looking for when she moved her Big B’s Beef to Delano seems to be working out.

“It’s been great here,” she says. “We have wonderful neighbors.”

Bathgate and her husband, Brian, moved their restaurant from 4628 S. Seneca to 605 W. Douglas, next to Hatman Jack’s Wichita Hat Works, late last year.

Liz Bathgate says they’ve found Big B’s is more of a lunch destination in its new spot, so they’re changing its hours.

Monday through Wednesday, the restaurant will still be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. On Thursday through Saturday, hours will be 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“At 7 o’clock, it seems to slow down here in Delano,” Bathgate says.

With the new site, Big B’s now has catering, too.

“We’re just expanding our catering menu,” Bathgate says. “This is growing. More and more people are asking for it.”

The restaurant also is now delivering downtown. There’s not a set minimum order.

“We usually ask that it’s a few orders,” Bathgate says. “We’re not real picky on that.”
