1102 Washington Ave, Cairo, IL 62914
Shemwell's was the very first place I ever tasted BBQ in my life. I guess that was back about 1965 maybe earlier. We had come back down to Cairo from Indianapolis to visit my Grand Mother who lived on 8th Street and Poplar. My Dad loaded me into the car and we went to Shemwell's, I don't think I'll ever forget that. I really hope to be moving back that way from Phoenix AZ and God willing I'll get some more before I die.
