Native Eats: ‘We have now our personal type,’ Pryor’s BBQ Home proprietor says

JACKSON, MI – You can get a bit of everything at Pryor’s BBQ House.

Lawrence Pryor owns the restaurant with his wife, Stephanie, and has been on Prospect Street for nine years. The passage was opened about two years ago.

“We sell a lot of catfish,” said Pryor. Other popular products are the Cheesesteak Hoagie and of course the grill. Pryor plans to add ice cream to the menu in the future.

The menu is varied and includes cones, corn dogs, burgers, homemade desserts and many starters and side dishes.

“My wife just wanted it to be good food,” said Pryor. “We have our own style of preparing everything.”

Pryor plans to only drive through the restaurant even after the coronavirus pandemic.

“I think we got through better than most of the others because we never had to switch off,” said Pryor. “We have been blessed.”

Pryor is proud to support the community and loves that the community supports the restaurant, he said.

Pryor’s BBQ House at 221 W. Prospect St. in Jackson is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11am to 9pm and on Sundays from 11am to 8pm. Call 517-960-7054. For more information, visit
