Our story

Over 15 years ago Al, with Mary Ann by his side, ditched his daytime cooperate job, put everything they had into the plan and followed his dream of owning his own business and smoking BBQ. In the early years there were bbq competitions, backyard fundraisers, school events and small cooperative events. Those beginnings evolved over the years into thousands of butts being smoke for fundraiser, weekly school events and cooking for groups of several thousand for catering.

In 2003 they opened their restaurant in Acworth with limited hours for carry out only and focused on their catering daily. Over the first 5 years they gradually increased their hours, added a little bit of seating and continued to grow their catering business. In 2008 they decided to open 7 days a week. They remolded the location and added full sit down and became a fast casual restaurant. Business soared and they were well established in the community as a friendly hometown BBQ joint with a loyal following.

Al and Mary Ann’s Daughters Megan and Kelsey grew up working in the family business and in 2015 Kelsey followed her heart into becoming a nurse and Megan continued help grow the family business. In 2016 Megan’s Husband Kohlton was promoted to the store manager and runs the business on a daily basis which allows Al and Mary Ann to focus on the catering side.

Zeigler’s offers a wide variety of signature meats and sides. A few of the crowd favorites are the tender smoked pulled pork and pulled chicken, Texas style brisket, slow smoked spare ribs or our butt rub seasoned chicken. The wings and in house ground and stuffed Texas hot links are another crowd pleaser. Zeigler’s homestyle mac and cheese fly’s out in all size of trays for their customer convenience. There is a reason why they call them “BBQ beans” as they are smoked on the pit for a few hours. Their loaded baked potato salad us a unique twist to the traditional potato salad.

Our Apple Bourbon Sauce is a instant hit to everyone who tries it. The sauce comes with most meals and family packs but can be purchased by the bottle at the restaurant.


We have helped teams earn thousands of dollars selling smoked butts for their teams. The excellent product combined with sizable profits for the team is what keeps teams coming back annually for their fundraisers.

We picked up dinner from Ziegler's yesterday for a party. We had pulled pork and pulled chicken, macaroni and cheese and baked beans. It was amazing! All of the guests really enjoyed the food and many of them had not been to Zeigler's before but couldn't say enough wonderful things about the food! Thank you so much for helping me host a successful party!
