Often searched for, rarely found. Creating something that’s “simple” can be the most complicated thing to do. Hugh-Baby’s BBQ & Burger Shop throws back to a time when things were as simple as they could be. A time when even the smallest things were well-made with deliberate attention and care. When just because something was to be simply enjoyed, you didn’t throw craftsmanship and dedication out the window.
We’ve brought back that same integrity to our menu with an obvious attention to detail that can be seen throughout. We illustrate this daily by grinding our own beef for our burgers, following time-honored Memphis barbecue traditions and showcasing the Corinth, MS, infamous “slug burger,” a depression-era favorite. Then we’ve combined these signature items with a small, straightforward menu that gives our guests more time to enjoy all the effort that goes into our food. That’s the clear-cut approach of Hugh-Baby's.
Pat Martin & "Hugh-Baby"
Storyteller. Fierce family man. Jokester. Lover of good grub. This was Hugh-Baby's owner Pat Martin’s uncle “Hugh Baby” Coleman. Hugh Baby was a man who not only loved his family but loved nothing more than spending time with them while surrounded by real, honest Southern food.
Pat Martin learned to love those same things in life. In fact, it was these times with family and friends that inspired Pat to become a Pitmaster. From the Saturday afternoon family time in Mississippi to opening Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint, time around the pit has been a central part of Pat’s life.
Since its opening, Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint and Patrick have been featured on the Food Network, Travel Channel, Cooking Channel, and The Today Show and in publications such as Bon Appetit, Esquire, Conde Nast Traveler, and Men’s Journal.
And now Pat brings the same dedication to Hugh-Baby’s BBQ & Burger Shop.
An ode to a great man and great cooking.
