  • Bob Sykes Bar-B-Q

    Since 1957, Bob Sykes has been known for barbecuing pork and chicken the old fashioned way, over slow fire of hickory wood. This method gives the meat a truly unique flavor, unlike any pork you've ever tasted: tender and succulent, with a soft and wonderful barbecue flavor that comes through gently in each and every bite. Folks say that it is the best tasting barbecue in the South.
