“Perfect stop for your Florida adventure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

The food was great, especially the pork nachos and hush puppies! The service was over the top...the waitress Chris was a real sweetie! If you have the opportunity to stop in, I would not pass it up!

“Don't judge a book by its cover!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

That pork was so delicious it didn't need sauce...and the rib sauce was so good it didn't need meat! Wishing we had a Lawler's in my home town because it was that good. The service was fantastic - thanks to the young lady who will soon be headed off to college. I recommend the pork plate!

“Most lawlers are great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Lawlers is the best place to get bbq, if you know which lawlers to go to. There is one in downtown athens that is my favorite and the original. They sell homemade pies that the other ones do not sell. There is another lawlers in athens on hwy 72. The food is great, but the owner is rude. I have also been to the Lawler's on Jeff road in Madison and it is good. I have been to one other Lawlers. It is located on Hughes road in madison. It is horrible. They do not follow the original receipt and I cannot believe they are still in business.

“Great pulled pork.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

The pulled pork platter, with two side dishes, is enough for we two seniors to share. Very nice smoked meat flavor not smothered in a tomato based barbecue sauce. There are three sauces available, but none are really needed. The pepper vinegar sauce, lightly used however, is very good.
When we are headed home, and passing this location, we take a few one pound frozen packages home in an ice chest. It's worth the effort.
