EXCLUSIVE! Drywall is being demolished. New equipment is being installed. Things are just beginning to take shape at Archer’s Tavern’s second location, soon to be opened in Kettering. The new restaurant will be where the old Tumbleweed restaurant was located on Dorothy Lane. Food Adventures has the first peek inside the renovations, you won’t see anywhere else. And one thing is for sure… this restaurant is gonna be big, both in size and excitement.
The ownership team of Dan Apolito, Mike Fullenkamp and Scott Dorsten are bringing their winning formula across town, but for now, they have been putting some sweat equity into the project. Most of the work so far has been done in the kitchen area. Hammering and tossing of scrap material can be heard on any given day, and the owners aren’t shy on grabbing tools themselves, and diving in on the teardown.
It isn’t hard to imagine the new location being packed with new fans of their burgers, pizza, wings, beer selection and so much more. Being across from Delco Park, “Archers’s 2” is a perfect place for that “after softball game” dinner and drinks. Archer’s Tavern’s reputation is good food and reasonable prices, from their salads to their chili, the menu is delicious.

HERE’S THE SKINNY:
— ARCHER’S KETTERING will be located at 2030 E Dorothy Lane
— The new location will bring that same signature menu that the crowds in Centerville have grown to love over the past 5 years.
— The restaurant will feature 24 draft beer taps, and an eclectic selection of local, familiar and rare beers.
— Archer’s will continue to feature Buckeye Vodka in many of its cocktails and special events.
— The seating area will be much larger than the Centerville restaurant
— The owners plan to open the eatery in July, given that the permits and construction finish on schedule.
—SWEET and SEXY WINGS: You wont hear about these on any other food site, because they aren’t on the menu… it is a special request. Sweet and Sexy Wings are wings with Dry Rub spice, drizzled with Spicy Garlic sauce, then tossed in Sweet BBQ sauce. The result is tangy and slightly hot taste of joy. Probably the best wing sauce we have ever tasted.
— THE STICKY BURGER: A burger with peanut butter on it? YES! The result is a unique taste, reminiscent of a Thai Peanut Sauce. This burger is the Big Ragu’s Favorite. It also comes with bacon and smoked pepper jack cheese. This is a curiously good burger that you won’t soon forget.
— THE CHILI – They have a chili cookoff each year, and the winner gets their chili on the menu. In other words, it is the best of the best. You gotta get a cup of this chili, great flavor and zing guaranteed !
— THE TACO PIZZA: Muey Bueno ...They use enchilada sauce for the pizza sauce. They add taco beef, cheddar and Monterey cheeses, onion, tomatoes, jalapenos and cilantro. Hot, spicy and ooh so nicey!
— THE MARGHERITA PIZZA: Fresh Mozzarella and a smooth tomato sauce is the key to this pizza. Fresh basil leaves and Roma tomatoes top off this vegetarian pie nicely. We cant believe we ate the whole thing!
— THE PHILLY CHEESESTEAK: A massive, heaping sandwich filled with meat, peppers and melted provolone cheese. You can also request cheese whiz on this monster. We say, go for it. This is how they do it in Philadelphia. Your choice of shaved ribeye steak or sliced chicken breast for the meat.
— ARCHER’S BREAD PUDDING: Made with Bill’s Donuts… need we say more?
Honorable Mention: The Gourmet Grilled Cheese – omg… the dijon mustard is brilliant and makes the sandwich, as does the buttery bread and chewy cheese combo.
Food Adventures is excited for this next chapter in the lives of Archer’s ownership. They give a lot back to the community, and we wish them continued success.
