Arthur Campbell... most folks call him "C.C." has been running a very clean kitchen for years. He runs Veterans Northside Bar-b-que two blocks west of Broadway on MLK Boulevard.
"Like the military when you mess up you clean it up, and you have no problem," he says.
Not a white glove test... but close. With what can be very messy food, twhite counter leaves nothing to hide.
"Just keeping it wiped down with a white kitchen, anytime you can look into the kitchen and see white. You can see everything on a white, that's why we have a white kitchen."
Campbell says most of his customers are regulars from the neighborhood surrounding him on Martin Luther King Boulevard, just west of Broadway.
"A lot of friends, a lot of veterans come through."
To look at the history on the walls. Patches, medals, and memorabilia. Much is donated... some is his. He's a Vietnam Veteran... wounded in the war.
"It taught me a lot of things, about life, how people want to be treated, how to get along with them."
And, his restaurant is a place vets come if they need a helping hand, or just to talk.
"We act as an outreach program for veterans when they need disability go to the hospital, so it's not just a barbecue place, it's an outreach for that too."
"Food is great! The slogan: "You need no teeth to eat this food." My mom is kinda the cause of that slogan, we work real real hard to keep good food here."
