This is a little different...and this could become a niche within the niche.
Red Bridges BBQ is located on US 74 East in Shelby. Bridges has been a Shelby and Cleveland County tradition since 1946. Since 1953, Bridges has had the same home on the service road along Highway 74 East.
This past April, I had my first taste experience of Bridges. My friend Steven and I were taking a brief Sunday Morning photo trip of the area, when we stopped to take a few photos of the restaurant. (See below)
Bridges was just about to open and the owners of the lodge invited us in to give us a tour on how the create their outside brown barbecue pork. After the tour, we sat at the counter and I enjoyed the famous BBQ and sauce.
The top photo was used in a small write up about Bridges on Trazzler.com.
