Mary Collins-Davis (Owner)

Culinary Team

Home of Good Barbeque started when Louise Collins and her husband, the Rev. Robert Collins, moved to Seattle in 1944 from Tallulah, La., where she was born.

With a family friend, Mrs. Collins opened the Home of Good Barbeque in 1952 on Yesler Way in the Central Area. In 1962, the friend turned the business over to the Collins', and eventually they added their first initials to the restaurant's name. Regulars refer to it as the R&L or the "Home of Good."

Mrs. Collins and her husband retired in 1979. The Rev. Collins, pastor of Philadelphia Missionary Baptist Church, died in 1985, Mrs. Collins died in 2002.

Daughter Mary Collins Davis now owns and operates the restaurant with daughters Barbara and Cheryl, and friend of the family David Frazier.

Many of the menu items come from Mrs. Collins' family recipes. The food drew fans from all over: Soul singer Donny Hathaway, actor James Earl Jones, rap artists Sir Mix-A-Lot and Public Enemy all stopped by for ribs. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. dropped by at closing time and stayed to eat and talk into the early morning. Sammy Davis Jr. sent a limousine over for takeout and that's not the half of it.
