This is really good barbque but Le Js is a bit hard to find as it stuck in the back corner of the Chisom Trail shopping center near interstate 135 a mile south of the Hwy 50. Le J cooks up his barbque every day in a gaint smoker out back. The favors are as good as anything to find... More

The bar-b-que food is fabulous. Whenever I am in Newton, KS I try to take my collegues out for lunch at Le J's. The owner is most hostpitable and always welcomes me back.

Very good BBQ - the best in the Newton/Wichita area. (For slightly better, consider Bobby D's in Emporia -- but that's hours away). Holds its own with anywhere. You can see the smoker out behind. Simple, hole in the wall place - how BBQ should be, yes? Check hours -- right now, they're open Tues-Sat 11-7.

A hidden secret at Chisholm trail. Goes easily unnoticed but I'd drive here from further away. Tested the brisket and ribs. Both were extremely good and fresh. Also had the coleslaw which was just perfect. Try the sauces they are home made and have REAL flavor instead of that commercial "smoke" that a lot of shops offer. Will be back... More

Small little place but LeJ does it right, ask for a sample. Always a smile and appreciates the business. Sit outside and watch people. Great for take out to add to your cook out
