Personally I like a lecture style barbecue a little better than some other styles You can choose from many variants sliced, chop ,sandwich ,platter Reasonable prices Facility could use some updating but that's part of its character Curbside service that you don't see much of anymore

Recently my wife and I were taking our son and another teen to meet the train in Charlotte to travel to a youth event in Philadelphia. We left too early and had time to kill. So since our route was taking us by Lexington we decided to make a detour there. After going to the Candy Factory to stoke them... More

Had a thick sliced tray today. The thick sliced tray had more meat than the chopped tray and every piece of pig was perfect. Good fries augmented the BBQ and the quantity was just right. Hushpuppies are good. The banana splits are three softball-sized 'scoops' of ice cream, a heap of nuts, and a large dose of whipped cream.

Had a thick sliced tray last Friday evening. I've had other BBQ in Lexington but not from BBQ Center in quite some time. Man, that sauce is good! Of course it is vinegar-based but the other ingredients plus the pepper made my tongue do a happy dance. The sauce comes in a small heated pitcher and I went through two... More

Steer clear of the red slaw! If you are obsessed with vinegar and call that BBQ sauce this place is for you. Nothing like any BBQ we've ever had and not in a good way. Would NOT recommend. Stick to the banana splits.

Great food. Always has been and I am sure always will be. The BBQ Center has been around as long as u can remember. If you love banana splits then it is a MUST to get one when you visit. However be prepared. It is HUGE. Enjoy!

We had lunch here in October. The first thing I noticed when we walked in were a group of decently dressed senior citizens sharing this huge banana split. We ordered the combos. Food was good and affordable. The Barbeque center was the reason why we have chosen to stop by Lexington. North Carolina is home to many great BBQ places... More

Located on North Main Street is Lexington Barbecue Center. They have hickory smoked pulled pork BBQ.... and it's good too. But save room for the best dish they serve up! Banana Split. I'm talk'n bout 3 mountains of ice cream smothered in caramel sauce, chocolate and walnuts then covered with whipped cream and topped with a cherry. It is HUGE.... More
