In 1936 Joe & Lola Mae Steedley opened
The Log Kitchen, a southern style tavern in
a remote south Georgia town known as
Homerville.  Joe added a wood fired pit and
started churning out bar-b-que for his
customers.  He quickly built a business
known for his cooking method and his
special blended sauce.  The Log Kitchen
grew from tavern to restaurant in just a few
short years.  In 1967 the Restaurant was
destroyed by Fire.  Joe started the
construction of a new facility but passed
away before it was completed.  Joe's
daughter Mary Joe and her husband Elroy
finished the restaurant and operated it
until 1975 when Mary Joe's first cousin
Earl (Jimbo) Steedley and his wife Pearlena
bought it. At that time they added Jimbo's
to the Log Kitchen name and it grew at a
rapid pace becoming regionally famous for
it's food and down home atmosphere.  In
1987 Earl passed away and the family
tradition was then passed to Earl's son
Mark and his wife Kitty.  They added a
catering division to Jimbo's and currently  
are handling about 400 events a year.  
Mark and Kitty  hope you enjoy their web
site and if you need  catering services they
would be more than happy to help.
