Roger's: New Owner, But:Same By BRYAN GETER Even though Roger's Bar- B-Que in Hogansville is under new ownership, it is still in the same family. Randy and Toni Striblin of Valley, Ala. purchased the restaurant from his brother, Eddie Striblin, in January after considering the deal for two years and started oper- ating it on March 6. Eddie Striblin opened the restaurant in Hogansville at the Hummingbird Station four years ago, even though it already had a rich tradition. Roger's Bar-B-Que was started by the Rogers fami- ly in 1945 in West Point as a family takeout business. "Mr. Rogers cooked the old-fashion way," Toni said," and Eddie bought the busi- ness along with the secret recipes." The small building burned 10-12 years ago and Roger's reopened in the old Pasqualles in West Point. Eddie sold the restaurant in West Point and also the one he opened in LaGrange. The Striblin's are trying to make the restaurant even more a "family gathering." Toni said they hope to start a "Date Night" on Monday's for parents. A room will set up for children to be entertained with a clown, a musicians and a family video while parents can enjoy a meal together knowing the children are safe. Tuesday night's have proven to be a good for busi- ness as well as entertaining for the family as Gospel Music is presented each week. Toni said the music start- ed four months ago in the side patio room and now it has grown so we have the gospel music in the main dining room. She said on Tuesday evenings, reservations are required due to the huge crowd. "We want people to come and relax," Toni stated. Singing groups interest- ed in performing on Tuesday, can call (706) 637 4100. There is a private dining room for civic club meetings, birthday parties, community meetings and other parties. "The Lion's Club meet here each month," she said. Striblin said the menu will have new items such as steak and shrimp, cheese sticks with sauce, 12 Oz. T-Bone, 10 oz. Ribeye and a low-cal meal as well. "We have the best fried green tomatoes anywhere," Mrs. Striblin stated with a confident smile. Roger's has been rated in the Top 20 in Georgia with its catfish. Mrs. Striblin stated that people stop by on the way to Florida to purchase ribs for their trip. "Our hamburger steaks are great," she said. Roger's opens from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. on: and Saturday. closed on Sundays. Roger's will plans a new lunch program.
