Pastor Willie Lark Sr. says he was born to serve his community through barbecue, and one bite in, you can see why. Together with his wife Marilyn, the two are serving comforting, soul-warming BBQ around Benton Harbor, MI. Their motto is “Some of the best barbecue you will ever have in your life”, and judging by the crowds their truck draws, it seems like they’re not too far off.
It may not say it in the name, but you’ll find hints of soul food and even some southern Cajun fare squirming their way into the menu at Lark’s. Sure they’re smoking up the classics like ribs and pulled pork, but they’re also frying up perch and catfish (served with hush puppies and fried okra, of course) and stewing up fresh jambalaya. Jump start your food coma by tracking them down, or better yet, book them to cater your next event.
