AWARD WINNING Bar-b-que & soul food
Mr. Thomas Ashley, Jr. took the leap of faith to leave his job of nine years at A.O. Smith in 1961 to begin “Ashley’s Drive-In Barbecue” at 1501 West Center Street. His slogan, “When better Bar-B-Q is made, I will make it” reflected the dedication Thomas put into his barbeque “hobby.” Now, fast-forwarding to 2014, the legacy continues with his son, Darnell, who currently owns Ashley’s Bar-B-Q. Darnell proudly shares with you the same recipe and passion that his father developed over 50 years ago.
