Imagine you’re sitting near the beach. You’ve got a drink in your hand, music in your ears, you can feel the coastal breeze of … the Little Miami River? It’s no daydream. It’s Lyle’s Bikes, Brews & BBQ, currently undergoing some big changes—and the finished product is going to feel a lot like Key West. 

  1. The first change coming? Structural improvements. When you step into the renovated location, you’ll find hardwood floors, a fresh paint job, and some sweet antiques like a Coca-Cola cooler from the 1930s.  
  2. The second change is “The Stand.” This stand-alone structure will be loaded with grab-and-go foods, fresh fruit, water and drinks—making it the perfect pit stop along the trail, especially for families who crave fast, easy access. 
  3. There will also be some menu changes (don’t worry, they’re keeping the classics!). Be on the lookout for Fried Pickle Chips, Chilled Dill Pickles, and specials like the “Dill of the Day.” 
  4. As the new owners let their ideas (and their pickles) ferment, they decided a new name would be appropriate to match the changes—Lyle’s is now “The Wicked Pickle,” complete with that laid-back, beach-breezy vibe we all crave, no matter the season.
