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.
