Lemaud and Herbert, along with their three other brothers, created a restaurant that not only left its mark on Cleveland, but the Midwest.

While Hot Sauce Williams’s popular location on Carnagie Road (pictured) closed on March 15, the locations at 3770 Lee Road and 1448, 12310 Superior Ave. remain open.
