Don't let the location and outside appearance of this restaurant fool you. Go inside and order the brisket, or the pulled pork or the pulled chicken. We added two types of slaw to our order. The pepper slaw is tasty but is a little hot and lingers in your mouth for awhile. The creamy slaw was wonderful. Service was quick and all workers were very pleasant and appeared to enjoy working at the restaurant. This is a local gem that is worth going out of your way to visit and eat.

Great food, awesome service, and the right price. Pulled pork and pulled pork sammies plus some great sides (ranch beans and collard greens) hit the spot. Get there early in case they run low on meat.

We got SEVERAL recommendations to come here from friends. We went at 2pm so there was no line, and they still had everything. I got the pulled pork sandwich and my husband got the brisket platter. Both were mouth watering delicious and extremely tender. Parking is a little tight, so you may need to park on the side road.

Awesome bar-b-que. Just won best in Lexington in Herald-Leader's 2018 Favorites contest. Brisket is out of this world and really good potato salad. Get there early...they sell out often.
