The original Bucktown restaurant hasn't opened yet, but Jeff Mauro and Co. already plan to open a second Pork & Mindy's in the spring. A spokeswoman confirmed that Mauro, the Food Network "Sandwich King" star, will open another sandwich spot at 4359 W. Irving Park Road inside the Get a Grip cycles shop which is also owned by Mauro and business partner Kevin Corsello.

Some Facebook sleuthing by the Old Irving Park Association first made the connection, despite the typo with Corsello's name. The sandwich shop's menu doesn't really focus on pork, as selections also include chicken and waffle, a veggie-friendly smoked mozzarella, lamb and chuck roast. But true to the name there's still hickory-smoked pork shoulder and pig candy. Check out the full menu here. No one involved will confirm if more locations are planned for the future.

Come back for more details on when the Bucktown spot will open, as it could do so before the end of the year.

UPDATE: A rep now says the Bucktown location should open in early January.
