Sprayberry's Bar-B-Q — Fast Family Dining in Newnan, Ga since 1926

Sprayberry's Barbecue had its beginnings as Houston Sprayberry's gas station located on Highway 29 just north of downtown Newnan. In 1926, Houston was selling enough barbecue sandwiches from the back of the station to close the pumps and become a restaurant. With his barbecue sauce and wife Mattie Lou's Brunswick stew, Sprayberry's Barbecue became Newnan's most popular eating spot.

Four generations of Sprayberrys have continued the tradition with over 95 years of service to travelers, businessmen and women, and locals. Politicians from U.S. Presidents to Governors have campaigned at Sprayberry's and entertainers and athletes stop for barbecue when traveling nearby. "Regular" customers include sports fans making their way between Athens, Atlanta, and Auburn. Others visit as they travel to and from the beach. Holidays bring families who have made a meal at Sprayberry's part of their family tradition.
