One of Macon’s oldest restaurants, Tucker’s Barbecue was established at this location on Broadway in 1947.
Originally a drive-in, it saw its busiest days when Broadway was the prime industrial area of Macon, supporting several factories. Though this stretch of Broadway is now one of the most desolate areas in town, Tucker’s hangs on and still serves its original recipe of chopped pork marinated in a vinegary sauce. It has its loyal fans and detractors alike, but its very survival says they owners are doing something right.
The old sign is an amazing survivor itself, and is a popular stop for photographers visiting Macon.
