Joe's Steaks, a work in progress, at Frankford and Girard Avenues.

Joe's Steaks + Soda Shop - the sandwichery formerly known as Chink's Steaks - has set April 1 as the opening date of its second location.

For nearly a year now, it's been setting up in the former New Acropolis diner, on the corner of Girard and Frankford Avenues, near Johnny Brenda's, Sancho Pistola's, Frankford Hall and Fette Sau.

Owner Joe Groh will keep late hours at the new shop, which will accommodate 50 to 60 people for tableside seating and will have a grill in the front window and an expanded pickle and pepper bar.
