Happy Birthday Mom! Today is founder Dorothy Everett's birthday. Mom passed away in 2007. She is forever in our hearts. Mom left us a great legacy and we thank you for your continued support.
Here is a video of my niece Sabrina sitting down with her grandmother and getting some startling information about her grandmother's life in the deep south before she came to Oakland and opened the 1st Everett and Jones Barbeque restaurant on 92nd Avenue & E 14th Street in East Oakland in 1973. Share your memories.

"I thought that I would never earn more than $3.00 an hour. With nine children
I always believed that God would make a way for us. I had a dream. I wanted to build
something that my children could fall back on. He answered my prayers."
-- Dorothy Turner Everett
