Very good homemade pulled pork, cornbread and Cole slaw. Homemade pickles and sauce. Will be back to try the ribs and have a beer!

The brisket sandwich $7.99 with side is especially delicious and can't be beat. BBQ pulled pork, sweet mashed potatoes also delicious. The sweet and sour sauce was particularly good and complimented the pulled pork perfectly. Worth the 25min drive out of Boston for BBQ lovers. Haven't had better brisket in town than this! Very friendly and helpful service. (Didn't try... More

We've been Lester's fans for years. We used to go there all the time for lunch and loved it. We haven't been in a while but when we planned to have family over for some good BBQ, Lester's was our first choice. We ordered a quart of pulled pork, pulled chicken, and chopped beef a couple of days in advance.... More

I love BBQ, and used to think Lesters was the best in the area. I had not been for a while so dropped in today, I was very disappointed. The brisket was served as a pile of very fatty chunks of meat, not neatly sliced as it should. The meat between the fat was tasteless, no pink smoke ring anywhere... More

.. in the boston area, I think this is definitely in the top 5. If you go there once, you won't hesitate to go again. And there is nothing like it as good that I have visited in the Burlington area. Give it a try.

Food is decent, prices are ok but the staff is kids who are rude. Drove by and stopped today to give it another try...This will be my last trip here, nothing has changed. Staff has more fun talking about thier night before than to the customers, I felt uncomfortable just ordering.

I was craving some BBQ and came upon Lester's. I ordered the half slab with a side of slaw and a. Side of pickles. The pickles were recommended by the cashier. Well...I was totally disappointed with my over priced meal. The ribs were nothing special. I tried all three of there sauces hoping to jazz them up. The pickles...I would... More

Lester's is close by and we enjoy coming here every now and then. Their brisket and ribs are good. Chicken is a bit dry. Several types of BBQ sauces available on the side.

I've had some good luck here at times, but it definitely can be inconsistent in terms of the quality of food. Probably has something to do with the time I've ordered.
