Lindsey’s BBQ & Hospitality House

Donnie and Eleanor Lindsey, owners of Lindsey’s Hospitality House & BBQ in North Little Rock, Arkansas

The original Lindsey’s BBQ was established in 1956 by Bishop D.L. Lindsey Sr., a minister and prominent community member in North Little Rock. He was the first African American to serve on the North Little Rock City Council, the North Little Rock Chamber of Commerce, and the board of directors of the North Little Rock Boys & Girls Club. In 1989, the small shop moved one block away to its current location at 207 Curtis Sykes Drive. According to the restaurant’s website, “The business’s original concept was to offer home cooking and Bar-B-Q for just lunch…but as the patrons grew so did the need for more time and capacity.”

Today, Lindsey’s BBQ & Hospitality House is run by Bishop Lindsey’s son, Donnie, and Donnie’s wife, Eleanor. The Lindsey’s are very involved in the community and committed to serving up the best home cooking and barbecue around. The Lindsey’s recently announced their participation in Marcus Lemonis’s “Plating Change” initiative in partnership with the Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance to prepare and distribute meals to Arkansans in need. You can hear more about their involvement in the project here.
