“Trying Local Non Chain Restaurants”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I went to Sweet Peas with high expectiations. While the service was excellent i found the food to be nothing really out of the ordinary. Not bad at all mind you, just nothing special.
I had the brisket, it was very tender but barley warm. And a salad. My husband tried the lassagna which he said was very bland but a large portion. Prices were reasonalbe though. My 15year old had a 1/2 lb hamburger with bacon and cheese with fries and it was less than $8

The building was an old store with some boths and some tables.

I will give it another try.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

We live in Lexington and love Sweet Peas! They have a little of everything and everything I have tried is great. The Brisket Mac and Cheese is AMAZING! Very good service and nice involved owners. Hope they stick around for a long time!

“Definitely a small town place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Went with a group of 5 people during a recent work trip - during which I declared the area to be a "culinary wasteland". Seriously, if you find yourself in the Welcome/Lexington NC area in search of good food - don't even bother looking.

Sweet Peas looked promising enough, although it was empty at 7:00 on a Monday night. Our waitress was very attentive and sweet, but not so much accurate in her description of some of the menu offerings. The "huge" burger was actually a huge bun with a smaller-than-average burger. The cakes were reportedly delicious, so we tried 3 different kinds and only moderately liked one. My brisket philly sounded delicious but was more fat than meat.

A plus, however, was their decent wine selection at really low prices. As well as our waitress letting us buy a bottle to take back to the hotel (no hotel bar...and no bars within seemingly miles of the hotel). I'd really give this a 2.5 but erred on the better side because of the nice staff.

“Great value!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Visited during the Lexington BBQ festival. Will certainly go back. Had 2 or 3 good beers and some appetizers. Loved the fact that they had brews on tap that were outside of the standard pub norm.
