After reading reviews we decided to try it out. The pulled chicken was extremely tender and flavorful and the collard greens and side salad were simple, fresh and tasted great. Great food, service and super friendly staff. I will definitely come out again or have them cater a meal.

Wife had pulled pork and I had the brisket plate, both were delicious. I had the creamy coleslaw and potato salad, again both were exceptional. If you want, they also have a vinegar based coleslaw. Better get here early because when it's gone, it's gone for the day. Wife's pulled pork sandwich was the last one of the day at... More

We just had our first visit to the Blue Door. We were greeted immediately and were given a thorough menu explanation. We were newbies but felt like regulars in a few minutes. My husband and daughter both had the "burnt ends" with 2 sides. Everything was good, but my daughter thought hers was a little spicy. I don't know if... More

Our family was in Lexington in June 2014 for a business trip for my husband. We wanted to eat some authentic Kentucky barbecue and found the Blue Door Smokehouse on Urbanspoon and decided to give it a try. As other reviewers have mentioned, the barbecue was some of the best that I have ever eaten. They had actually been robbed... More

As a vegetarian, I've only had the privilege of trying the sides here, but they are amazing! All the carnivores in my life have quite enjoyed the meatiness of this place. The staff is friendly and helpful!

This is by far a welcome addition to all the barbecue joints open in Lexington. It just opened in March 2014. Meats are always fresh smoked. Hours are limited during the week. Open only for lunch Mon - Thurs and then lunch and dinner Friday and Saturday. Right now they are closed on Sunday. It is a small restaurant but... More

The Blue Door Smokehouse in Lexington, KY is simply the best and newest Barbecue joint in the Bluegrass. It was just opened by area renowned chef, Jeff Newman (The Mansion / Griffin Gate Marriott Resort) and is standing room only almost already. And that's because of - - - - well - - THE BARBEQUE. If it weren't for the... More
