Gibbs Butcher Block to Expand Brand with Restaurant in Olmsted Falls

For 20 years, Jim Dixon was content with running Gibbs Butcher Block (9858 E. River Rd. N., 440-235-2766) in Columbia Station, home to an endless array of gourmet sausages, hotdogs and burger blends, among many other meaty delicacies. The next thing you know, he’s getting into the restaurant business.

“This all came about really fast,” Dixon says. “The place closed two weeks ago and we bought it the following week.”

“The place” was the former Taqueria Junction, which closed a couple weeks ago after a solid eight-year run. The property (8154 Columbia Rd.), located just two miles from Gibbs Butcher Block in neighboring Olmsted Falls, was simply too good to pass up, notes Dixon.



“I’ve always had it in the back of my mind that it would be cool to have a restaurant that used all the stuff that we have here at Gibbs – and then this one came up right up the street,” he explains. “It’s a cool little place that came with everything I needed.”

When it opens in a month or so, Gibbs Butcher and Brews will utilize many of the products that customers have come to know and love at the butcher shop over the past 20 years, foods like homemade sausages, gourmet hot dogs, burgers and Amish-raised chicken.

Folks can get a sneak peek of the space – and sample some burgers, sausage sandwiches and cold beer – this weekend during the Olmsted Falls Heritage Days; Dixon will be opening up the property for a limited time tonight, Friday and Saturday.

Stop by and wish him well on his new adventure.
