Photos from the Past – Amos Daniels’ Bar-B-Que

The famous Bar-B-Que prepared by Amos Daniels was a real treat in Opelousas for many years. Daniels, pictured in this photograph, had lines of cars waiting on Sunday mornings to pick up a plate of his food. He was known throughout the Opelousas area for his great Bar-b-Que. As his customers said, “it was all about the sauce” that he used to baste his famous cooking.  Besides the Bar-B-Que, people raved about the rice dressing, baked beans and potato salad he prepared as sides on the plate.
