Big Smith’s Celebrates 30th Anniversary, Invites Public

Steve Smith, co-owner and founder of Big Smith’s BBQ and Catfish

Restaurateurs Steve and Donna Smith of Big Smith’s BBQ and Catfish know how to cater to a crowd…that’s their livelihood!…so they invited everyone to join them in observing the 30th anniversary of their business! The current location on Hwy 154 South of Sulphur Springs has been their home for the past five years, and long-time patrons will remember their original location further south along the highway in a converted dairy barn. Much of the Smith’s rustic decor comes from the original location and other repurposed farm finds, making a perfect setting for the laid-back family atmosphere of Big Smith’s!
