Cleveland barbecue legend Herbert Williams, who, along with his four brothers, lent his name and talents to the beloved Hot Sauce Williams restaurants, passed away last Wednesday at the age of 82.

For decades, Hot Sauce Williams has fed Polish Boys, chicken and ribs to Clevelanders and celebrities alike. Even Anthony Bourdain filmed an episode of No Reservations at the beloved establishment. See below:
