Our Founder Bill Spoon
My grandfather, Bill Spoon, founded Spoon’s BBQ in 1963 when South Boulevard was a two-lane country road named “Pineville Road.” Since then, a lot has changed, but our recipes are still original and our true southern hospitality has remained the same. Papaw, as I called him, taught me most of what I know. He taught me the in and outs of cooking the barbecue to perfection. He taught me the importance of consistency through the food we serve. He taught me how to run the business from the kitchen to the cash register. But most importantly, he taught me to treat the customers the way I’d want to be treated. We strive to make each meal a memorable one, and the Spoon family grows with each new customer who walks through our doors.
If you’re looking for real Eastern NC Style BBQ served with homemade vinegar based bbq sauce, mustard based coleslaw, hearty Brunswick stew, made-from-scratch hushpuppies, homemade banana pudding and the best sweet tea around…we’d love for you to join us for a meal!
See you soon!
