The Bridges Barbecue in Shelby, NC is home to some real eye-catching neon. With the neon on the roof to the marquee outside, the Bridges can be seen from quite a distance. The photographer catches the essence of discovering this neon.

Than I saw it in the distance, the call of neon in the form of the classic Bridges BBQ sign. For me who is always finding BBQ places when I do not have time to stop or have already eaten the time was right for this one. Stepping inside was a true blast from the past. The place was completely original from the mid 1950's. They had some 1950's postcards on the wall and sure enough, the building, signage and even the neon pig are as they were when the place first opened. The manager (owner?) told me the only noticeable change was the seat coverings that were recently redone but had been brown as per a photograph he pointed out. One thing I can say about the Carolina BBQ places is that I will never get used to BBQ cole slaw. Regular cole slaw is hard enough to pallet but the BBQ stuff is just offensive to my taste buds! 01-08
