Opening: Jed's Barbeque & Brew

Jed's Barbeque & Brew opened its first Columbus location, in the Crosswoods area, this week. The Ohio chain also has restaurants in Bowling Green, Maumee and Perrysburg.

They've got a quirky menu filled with colorfully named items, and an apparent obsession with balls. Their specialty is Fireballs, basically like boneless chicken wings. You can try infinite variations on the original Fireballs, including Hangover Balls (topped with cheese, tater tots, bacon and two fried eggs), Fungus Balls (sauteed mushrooms and cheese) or Garbage Balls (bacon, mushrooms, fries, olives, blue cheese and regular cheese).

You can also order pizzas, sandwiches, burgers, wings and entrees like Chicken N Chips. Despite the restaurant's name, there are only a couple of BBQ items on the menu besides the Balls, including a pork BBQ sandwich and the Pork-O-Rama, "a heaping fill of BBQ Pork Sueyeeeee!"

Check out the menu here.
