Backfire BBQ closes at The Legends

KANSAS CITY, KAN. --- Backfire BBQ, a restaurant that opened out at The Legends in December 2009, has closed.

The restaurant closed on Sunday night, according to the (former) restaurant's Facebook page.

Backfire BBQ, a 9,000-square-foot "biker-themed" restaurant, was known for its barbeque and sandwiches.

The business was originally the idea of Steven Schussler, who launched Rainforest Cafe in Johnson County and T-Rex Cafe at The Legends.

A specific reason was not given for the closing.
