"Any One Can Put The Heat To The Meat, But Only A Few Can Barbeque"

Andrew & Rose Pollard founded A&R Bar-B-Q in 1983 as a fast food take-out restaurant.

Over the years, it grew, providing customers the option of dining-in, as well as catering.
When the company first opened, a very small menu provided barbeque and hamburgers and service walk-in customers only.

But as the business transitioned into dining-in, the restaurant expanded.
A seating area, accommodating 75-80 persons, was added for the large lunch
crowds now served day-to-day.

Also, the Latrice Pollard-Anthony Room is frequently used for private parties and large groups.

Catering was soon added to the list of services, and now counts for 1/3 of the business revenue.

In 2001, a second location at 3721 Hickory Hill Rd. opened to accommodate the fast growing Hickory Hill-East Memphis base customers. In 2004 we added a third location in Bartlett.

In 2008 our Downtown Memphis TN opened, on the coner of third and court street.

Now there are four restaurants across the Memphis area serving hundreds and hundreds every day.
