Who We Are


Taste the Love.
Luella’s Bar-B-Que is named after owner and Pit Boss Jeff Miller’s grandmother Luella.  “Grandma Lue” did all the cooking when the family would get together for Sunday dinner and holidays.  Scratch cooking from the garden at its best. What she handed down was an understanding of how great food is created – honest good cooking, made with a loving hand.
