Thanksgiving Every Day of the Week

Thomas M. Brown, Jr. is a farmer. He plants soy, wheat, hay, and oats to sell on the market. Additionally, he grows corn, squash, zucchini, and broccoli, okra, butter beans, collards, and cabbage for his restaurant’s massive buffet line. At Brown’s Bar-B-Q, these fresh vegetables are served in season alongside pilau rice and white rice, macaroni, yams, barbecue chicken and fried chicken, barbecue turkey and baked turkey, barbecue ribs, smoked ham, potato salad, coleslaw, and, yes, chopped barbecue.   

A motorcycle accident left a teenage Thomas Brown with a broken leg. Confined to bed and with a hot plate set up within reach, he learned to cook for himself. In 1981, he started serving takeout plates—rice and gravy, yams, barbecue—from a window on the family farm. A decade later, he built the dining room, as large as the buffet table is long.

At Brown’s Bar-B-Q, dinner, or lunch, is like Thanksgiving eating enjoyed every day of the week. The fresh vegetables, the variety of meats; all the desserts that can’t fit on one plate. It’s hard to keep track of all the gravies.

  1. This is a great article and I love this type barbecue food. I have been to many cities in the United States and a lot of the cities out west actually have buses all over the place that serve barbecue food. I also enjoy going on, west coast bus tours because they take you to the best parts of San Diego, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. I have been on a few tours like this and they are great. However, when I am just exploring cities myself and I come across good barbecue places like these, I always stop for something! Great post

  2. It looks great because when people head to a certain region of location they get into finding the right point to have food or enjoy the time in a place which is actually helpful for them and during my tour to west coast bus tours of usa i have found many places which were simply appreciable and they have always treated us well.
