“Best BBQ in NC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

If you love BBQ, this is the place. I'm an eastern NC BBQ lover but Lexington BBQ has A special place in my heart. As a service member, when I ate there in uniform, I was never allowed to pay and they forced me have apple pie a la mode!

“Great food !!! 1”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Never in my wilds dream would I have thought this place would have such good food , but they really got me . I was so shocked the hell out of me , a friend of mine took me there and several other people . I love BBQ and if your meat is good and tender you are a real winner , the vinegar taste was something that i never would have thought . Now when you can cook BBQ like this you know something about BBQ . And i finished every drop and got me a carry out for later that night , this place was ( A RATED ) !!!1

“My favorite for Lexington-style BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Have been going here for pork barbeque my entire life --- it has always been my favorite barbeque restaurant in Lexington. Nothing fancy, service is fast, food is great --- Lexington barbeque at it's best (in my opinion)!

“Lexington BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

It has a great reputation, is good, but not the BEST Lexington BBQ. I think the meat has gotten slightly bland...
