Drive thru and take out only. No dining room. About 5 miles east off I65 Exit 32. The way it is... Using old-fashioned recipes and time honored traditions, we still smoke barbecue real slow in our USDA facility in Tennessee. This insures the highest quality and consistency so that every customer at every location gets the same tasty, tender, juicy barbecue. We have developed systems and procedures that allow us to offer you almost fast food speed of service...yet everything is made as you order! We always have plenty...so if you need a big order at the last minute...we have you covered! In an age where most pork barbecue is cut, chopped, or ground by machine...we still hand-pull or "pick" the meat from the bone. Sure it's harder and takes longer...but our "pickers" (as we affectionately call them!) are our best quality control. Their trained and caring touch leaves only the leanest, moistest pork...lightly sauced to let the great hickory flavor burst through in every bite!! Guess you could say...we keep pickin' so you'll keep grinnin' The truth of the matter... Because we are just a "little barbecue joint" ...not near as fancy or as famous as some...we know we must try harder to earn your business. We want to be faster, cleaner, and tastier. We cannot be everything to everybody, so we just want to be everything to YOU. At LawLers Barbecue we believe in "cooked slow...served fast! We think you deserve Tickled Pink Service! We don't need to win trophies or contests...we win when you become a regular customer! If you haven't tried us yet...what are you waitin' for?

Love their food

I have always been very happy with any food that we have gotten from there. I think they have the best barbecue anywhere. I would highly recommend them to anyone

I love the stuffed baked potatoes! Hands down the best I've ever had:) And they are HUGE!!! On Tues they are 2 for $10. BBQ nachos are great as well. Just a drive thru or walk up restaurant - no sit down area. Every time I come to town, I love to eat here:)

I've had just about everything here. First the great; pulled pork, ham, & turkey are great. Phenomenal even. Bbq nachos & taters are great as well. The average; cole slaw, tater salad, green beans are just ok. Nothing for me to write home about. Theyre good just don't have the zing that make me say "wow". The worst; ribs, baked... More

The loaded potato is the best thing on the menu! You CANNOT find a potato anywhere that is any better than this. I live four hours away now, but my family knows when I come to town, there needs to be at least one potato waiting on me - I'll eat one everyday I'm in town.

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.
