Hattie Marie’s – College Park, GA

After roaming around with my beloved on a Friday morning, we stopped by her sister’s house, as we were getting ready for lunch.  She mentioned that a new barbecue place had opened in downtown College Park last week.  We happened to be in the area around lunch time today.  Coincidence?  I think not.  Off we […]

Leonard’s Pit Barbecue – Memphis, TN

As we headed back home from Little Rock, it looked like we would be driving through Memphis around lunch.  This was completely unplanned.  I looked at the list for options and, being Sunday, there were limited options.   Coming through, on the south side, at lunch time (see their hours above) narrowed it down to one […]

Knoth’s Bar-B-Que, Grand Rivers, KY

Heading from Nashville toward Paducah, we stopped at the Kentucky visitors center on I-24 and asked if there were any barbecue places in that part of the state serving mutton (this is a “thing” in the Owensboro area of Kentucky).  The lady said that she thought that Knoth’s Bar-B-Que, over in Grand River, might and […]

Bleu House Market – Norcross, GA

Scotty’s Soul Food – Midland, TX

Landing at Midland Air & Space* Port, I was confronted with lunch choices: chicken fried steak?  Or barbecue?  I decided on the former and asked the young lady at the car rental counter, “Who has the best chicken-fried steak in Midland or Odessa?”  She answered, without hesitation, “Scotty’s Soul Food.” Decision made.  I plugged the […]

Scott’s Pit Cooked Bar-B-Q – Hemingway, SC

For the last eight years, I’ve been wanting to eat barbecue at Scott’s Variety.  But it is slap dab in the middle of nowhere – 80 miles north of Charleston and 100 miles east of Columbia.  Not to mention more than 300 miles from home…  I just couldn’t find an excuse to get there.  The […]

Jim’s Smokin Que – Blairsville, GA

We’re coming to you today near the end of the Six Gap trail, in Blairsville, with lunch at Jim’s Smokin Que.  This spot comes to us courtesy of a Trip Advisor ranking of barbecue joints from a couple of years back, in which they ranked fairly highly, nationally.  Being on Six Gap trail, there were […]
