Bob Sykes Bar-B-Q

Bob Sykes Bar B Q is a family owned local tradition since 1957. Founders Bob and Maxine Sykes opened an ice cream and hamburger stand in Central Park area of Birmingham, Alabama. This was about the time Bob built his first pit and began to cook the barbeque he remembered so fondly as a child growing up in the hills of western Tennessee. The rest as they say is history. Bob Sykes has been the benchmark for others to match for true southern barbecue. Times may have changed, but nothing has changed in the way we prepare and cook our famous barbecue and special sauce. The experience and traditions of excellence has been passed down to Bob and Maxine’s son, Van Sykes, who is passing on his knowledge to Jason Jewell, their grandson.
