Horne's Bar B Q


If you've ever been to Tuscaloosa, this great neon sign on 15th should be familiar. Horne's Bar-B-Q on 15th street beside Forest Lake was around way before fast food. That's their chimney in the background. The restaurant is still in business but under a new name, Mike and Ed's. Click to enlarge so you can read the sign - Beef Pork Chicken, then the round part says Hickory Smoked and has a picture of a pig dancing over a fire! Hilarious.

I bet it looks good at night. A little hard to see what the sign says through the rust in the day.

I lived in that neighborhood when I was young back in the 50s & 60s. I used to walk to Horne's for chocolate malts. 25 cents.
