When Elbert and Jacquelyn Wingfield would invite friends and neighbors over for barbecue, a clear pattern started to emerge.
“Every time, we would tell somebody that we were cooking ribs, it seemed like the whole neighborhood would come,” Elbert said. “I told my wife, I said, ‘We got something going here.’”
When the Wingfields established a barbecue stand at a local flea market, they needed a name. Elbert was inspired by the song “Suzie Q” by Creedence Clearwater Revival and decided to name the restaurant Saucy Q Bar-B-Q.
