Jeff and Mary Clay purchased
Popeyes' Bar-Be-Que from Juanita Jones in 1994 following the death of Benson "Popeye" Jones.The sauce recipe is more than 100 years old. Springfieldians still call it the best. It's the home of the "Blazin Heifer Sauce." The Clay's have continued to work hard and maintain the reputation in receiving community and civic awards, as did the Jones' restaurateurs.
The Clay's continue to carry on Benson "Popeye" Jones family BBQ sauces, mild, medium and hot.
