"Abdullah The Butcher's House Of Ribs"...(OMG!) Fri, 05/4/07 8:52 AM (permalink)
..."And Chinese Food."

I wish I had a camera to capture the moment. The place is bizarre. BBQ ribs, "Butcher Burgers", Chinese food...not to mention a dash of country, soul food like collards and mac & cheese. All in a former "7-11", and owned by a 400-lb. professional wrestler, who if you are lucky enough to catch him checking business out, will sit with you, and let you stick a quarter in his forhead.

I kid you not...

I searched the web, and was "lucky"enough to find someone who DID take a camera! WOW~!!!http://www.redpac.com/photo/archives/000972.html

Sometimes, truth is stranger than fiction... By the way, the food is pretty good! Have a rack of ribs, and some veggie sides, and get some Chinese stir-fry to go, for lunch the next day.

    Thanks for the laugh.

    Here's his Wikipedia entry:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abdullah_the_Butcher

    Apparently, one of his signature moves involved a fork which pulled out of his pants.

        Aside from the ring, "Abby" is a really funny fellow. I spent a lot of time working around him when I was with Georgia Championship Wrestling back in the late 70's.

        Those scars are from years of "blading"---the way hardcore, old-school wrestlers produced blood. Usually, done by the wrestler himself, with a small razor, secured with bandage tape to a finger. I don't mind the forehead, as much as the huge, drooping watermelon sized breasticles. Abby Please!

                  I would absolutely go here for the novelty. But, I don't think I would want my quarter back!

                    dahl, no problem giving an address or a link. Although if a new person such as yourself were to write a glowing review and post a link it might get canned as spam.

                      Hilarious! We used to call them his 'pork chops' (he was a butcher) when we were watching him wrestle on TV.

                        It is one of the biggest regrets in my life that I have never been to this place. Abdullah is an absolute legend in the professional wrestling business. The guy is 70 and he still gets into the ring on occasion.
