Overton Square restaurant cooks Thanksgiving dinner for St. Jude families

Overton Square restaurant cooks Thanksgiving dinner for St. Jude families

An Overton Square restaurant is making sure families staying at the St. Jude Target House have a Thanksgiving meal.

Stanley BBQ grilled hundreds of pounds of turkey that will be served to the St. Jude families.

This is the fourth year the restaurant owner has put together the meal. He was inspired by a friend who had a nephew die from cancer.

"We want to feed these families Thanksgiving dinner and try to take their minds off of things. Get things as close to home as they can be and kind of take the worry off of things for the afternoon," Stanley BBQ owner David Walker said.

The restaurant also had a band and a donation jar so customers could support the Target house.

On taking a new approach: Stanley Bar-B-Que and Red Fish

On taking a new approach: Stanley Bar-B-Que and Red Fish

It's never too late to find your passion, and for career bartender Andy Walker, that passion has turned out to be smoking meats.

"For the first 20 years of my career, I stayed as far away from the kitchen as possible," Andy says. "Now, barbecue is a real passion for me. You'd be surprised what you're really good at."

Andy is one of the brothers and sons, behind Stanley Bar-B-Que, formerly Schweinehaus, in Overton Square.

He owns and runs the eatery with his brother, David, who is not new to the restaurant business nor to barbecue — he was on a barbecue-cooking team for Memphis in May for years, studied at the French Culinary Institute, and was an executive chef in New York before returning to Memphis to be with his family.
