GLENDA STRIBLIN Eddie S triblin purchased the busi- ness in 1985. He has maintained the secret recipes and other cooking pro- cesses that were part of the original operation.

"We pride ourselves in serving you the best quality food at the lowest HUMMINGBIRD STATION prices possible. Our recipes date back over 50 years and are carefully cooked daily from scratch. Our meats are never frozen, our Brunswick stew, and barbecue sauces are made fresh in our restaurant. They are never bottled or canned. Our catfish are pond-raised and grain fed (best qual- ity catfish)," said Eddie W. Striblin Owner/Operator. The Striblins have since sold the Rogers Bar-B-Que Restaurants that are still in operation in West Point COMPLEX AT EXIT 6. and LaGrange. Glenda Striblin said, "We have a full line of barbecue pork, prepared in a traditional way. We, of course, make our own sauces and pay extra attention to side orders and in particular, our iced tea." The new restaurant will have a full menu and will "target" the family. The. menu has dinner plates, salads and soups, sandwiches and, of course, Renovations and start-up prepara- tions started Monday for Rogers Bar- B-Que Restaurant at the Humming- bird Station near Exit 6.

Hummingbird Station is owned by Wilson Oil Company of Auburn, Alabama. Julie Massengil, who is manager of the Citgo Gas and Con- venience Store said, "We are very proud that Rogers Bar-B-Que is com- ing here. They will be an asset to Hummingbird Station, the Exit 6 area, and the City of Hogansville." The new restaurant seats over 125 and will be operated in a family restaurant manner.
