In the back of the convenience store at the Chevron at 3441 Mt. Zion Road in Stockbridge is a small window and counter. Behind the glass, husband and wife Daric and Shanta Forrest, the owners of Mr. Styles Family Barbecue. On a side note, these two crack me up with their personalities that are almost as large as the burger we are featuring.
Now I hear the BBQ is really good, but that will have to wait for another visit. I trekked south to the Clayton/Henry County line with one thing in mind... the Buckanator. It's not everyday that you get a burger named after you.
The Buckanator is larger than life. It starts with two huge patties, topped with a generous portion of cheese and bacon. Then they add caramelized onions and green peppers, lettuce, tomato, and pickles, plus their super secret but very special BBQ sauce, all in between a perfectly toasted bun.
As the old saying goes... go big or go home. We did both as we ordered the Buckanator takeout, bytvrest assured that kn trying #BWB fashion, every last morsel was consumed.
One more thing, incase you're wondering why they call it Mr. Styles Family Barbecue, it's because Daric is also a singer who goes by the name, Mr. Styles, and you can check him out on YouTube.
#BWB encourages you to support your local restaurants as they are trying to navigate these difficult times. We are all in this together and we will get through this together.
