signs, signs


Jim and Milt's Bar-B-Q has been is business in Tallahassee since 1968 when it was opened by two fellows named, you guessed it, Jim and Milt. The original owners sold it in 1979, but it has remained pretty much the same through the years. I first started going there when I was a student at FSU over 40 years ago. It is located right down the road from Doak Campbell Stadium.

Linking to signs, signs.

A very big sign, can not be overlooked.

I'll have to admit that my first thought when I saw the word "pitchers" was that they were selling baseball players. Must have been the article I just read about our Washington Nationals' Stephen Strasburg. :-)

Well, you can't pass without seeing the sign.

TexWisGirl said...

you've got me curious what 'ayce chicken' is. :)

Lois said...

ayce = all you can eat

Sharon Anck said...

Must be some good bar-b-q if you've been going there that long.

VP said...

It is evidently a very good place!

Gwen said...

I didn't know what ayce was, either. LOL

LOVE BBQ joints like this!

William Kendall said...

It occurs to me that you very rarely see the name Milt anymore.

Aimeecakes said...

Yum! I love the composition in this shot

Marleen said...

To survive this long they must serve good food!

Have no clue what pitchers are but I suppose I'll try them...

RedPat said...

And I bet everything is finger licking good! ;-)

You get all the chicken you can eat for 49 cents? No wonder it's popular with students! (I assume a number before the decimal point fell off the sign!)

Lois said...

I guess I've lived in a college town for too long! Pitchers is short for pitchers of beer :)

Great price on the wings! Tom The Backroads Traveller

This looks like quite a popular place. I'm sure generations of FSU students have enjoyed BBQ here.

Annie Bear said...

Oh, I've missed good BBQ since moving from Texas. I love vintage signs, at least I'm assuming this is the original sign. How neat to have a place around that you've always gone to. Consistency is always nice and sadly lacking a lot of the time nowadays.

I like any sign that has Jim in it. ;)

So what is Ayce chicken?
