Loaded POtatoes!

Nothing beats their loaded potato. Use to eat here once a week when I lived in Lewisburg. Now, I eat there when I visit. Haven't found any as good any place I travel.

I know this is a local favorite, but I have to admit I was not impressed. For the cost, I would expect better. I o my received two tiny sides with a whole rack of ribs. When I say tiny, I'm saying about two tablespoons. Flavor was ok, but nothing spectacular. Sorry Lawlers, I've had better barbecue.

Very sorry you were not impressed. Guessing you got a full slab plate? The sides are 4oz single serving size, which most folks find to be plenty. Thank you for trying us. We can't please everybody but we sure do want to...especially YOU! More

My husband recently discovered their Brunswick Stew and has been back twice for it, even got some for a friend visiting us to try. Our kids always want some good Tennessee Style Barbeque when they visit so this is where we get it.

Their pulled pork is great and their loaded pulled pork potatoes are awesome! We go about 6-8 times per year. Making me crave it just writing about it.

"The Devil made me do it!" Lawler's stuffed potato (with Pork BBQ) should have a warning of some type about becoming habit forming. If you're driving down I-65 and you see a sign pointing you to Lewisburg, it is well worth the sidetrip. It is about a block from the town's Walmart, you can't miss it. If you think you... More

I have had the loaded potato vary depending on who makes it. A time or two it's been very bland, but when it's on....mmmmmmmm....About as good as a loaded tater gets! I always get the pork tater and sometimes get a ham sandwich for later. Better ask for sauce because they don't always put it in there. Try it!

I recommend the pork BBQ loaded potato and side salad. There is enough to feed two easily! Lawler's BBQ and side items also make a very tasty meal.

Absolutely the best bbq around. Everything they make is great. The plates the sandwiches and especially the loaded potatoes. By the sandwich or by the pound it cant be beat. I have friends from Texas who can't wait to get Lawlers bbq when they come and Texans know their bbq.
