About Ol' Bob's BBQ & Catering

Home of North Carolina's Largest BBQ Sandwich. Ol’ Bob’s BBQ restaurant is serving Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner made to order. Catering available for events and meetings.

Ol' Bob's BBQ was somewhat born out of chance. Throughout the 1990s, Bob Patterson, a retired high school administrator, and his son Eric spent many of their afternoons and evenings over the fire cooking great tasting BBQ for school fundraisers. Upon Bob's passing, Jeff McMahan and current sole-owner Robby Earnhardt, Eric's friends and coworkers at the local Pepsi distribution plant in Statesville, NC stepped in to fill the void. The signature blend of spices and cooking techniques that Bob had shared with Eric throughout the years made the trio's barbeque in high demand throughout the community, as they received an increasing number of rave reviews and catering requests. The friend's experiment and hobby got so time consuming, in fact, that a choice had to be made: either call it quits and focus on their jobs at Pepsi, or leave behind their upper-management positions and start a restaurant. The decision was made, and nearly two decades later, Ol' Bob's is going stronger than ever!
