Yum, Yum

Rachel at Alabama Bloggers has asked us to list our favorite restaurant in our area. Well, I like any restaurant since I'm not the one cooking and cleaning up (although I do really like to cook, the cleaning up part, not so much). But, in my area I would have to say it would be Bob Sykes BBQ. Oh my goodness gracious, it is delicioso!

It's not much to look at and when you pull up in the parking lot you are thinking, "Do I really want to eat here?" Once inside though you will not want to leave. You can watch the men cook the meat over a huge open grill and the smell alone is enough to get you hooked. You can go inside and sit in the very cozy little booths or tables or go through the drive thru. You can also call and they will have it ready for you to pick up. I have heard their pies are divine, but I am always so full after the huge helpings they give you I haven't tried a piece yet. Get the onion rings, you will not regret it!

Mark took me here for the first time when we were dating and I decided then and there he was the one for me. (Not really, but it sure didn't hurt.)


  1. Yum! My hubby grew up in Shannon, so he spent many meals there growing up. His Dad still goes there ALL the time (you've probably seen him once or twice if I had to guess!!)

    I've never been, but I need to give it a try!!

  2. Thanks for the comment...yes, I think Alabama Bloggers is a great idea! I see that you're a big Pride & Prejudice fan, I love the movie, but haven't gotten around to reading the book, but it's on my reading list!

  3. Mmmmmm, that sounds tasty. I love good barbecue.

  4. I have noticed that many of my favorite food spots - as well as others recommended to me - start with the description "it isn't much to look at"!! Why is that??

    Been looking at some past posts...such cute pictures of the kids!
