Doan’s Bones Barbecue To Replace Boots

The favorite convenience store for residents of The Graduate is hanging up its Boots.

Barbecue and catering establishment Doan’s Bones will officially open its doors on March 16 in Boots’ location at 401 W. Beaver under The Graduate. Doan’s Bones specializes in catering, but also serves classic barbecue fare such as ribs, sandwiches, and wings for patrons wishing to dine in. The menu is extensive, and also includes burgers, nachos, soups, and salads, all for reasonable prices.

The 9-year old, family-owned restaurant is relocating from Petersburg to downtown State College. In addition to its Whipple Dam location, the company is opening in State College to be closer to customers looking to place catering orders and attract local restaurant traffic from the nearby apartments, said co-owner Brandon Corvin.

Corvin opened Doan’s Bones in 2003 at the Whipple Dam location, serving his first customers their barbecue from a fire pit. Within a year, his store had its own picnic area and covered takeout area. After the success at Whipple Dam, Corvin (whose friends called him Doan) and mother Anita purchased another location that also served ice cream in Centre County in 2008.

The State College restaurant opened briefly this weekend with limited menu options. It will remain closed until the grand opening, when all of the interior remodeling will be complete. It plans to add several tables and a counter near the windows so patrons can look out onto Beaver Ave.

As for the convenience store needs of West College denizens, Mini-Mart isn’t a bad second option.
