“Best of the Best”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

My husband and I can't pass anywhere near Lexington without stopping at the Lexington Bar-be-Que. In a town with many good options, this is our favorite. The service is prompt and friendly, the 'Que' is moist, flavorful and tender. We've eaten nearly all of the 'Que' selections on the menu and have never been disappointed. Their sauce is peppery and tangy (we take a bottle home nearly every visit). An altogether perfect NC BBQ Experience at this place! Worth a detour.

“Good food, friendly service”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

The meat was tender, the service was quick, and the staff was friendly. There were more than 10 people waiting in line, but we waited only for 10 min. If they had more varieties of sauce and if they had white slaw, I will give 5 stars. We tried pig skin and it was good.

“Best Bar-B-Que in Lexington”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

This is some of the best pit cooked bar-b-que you will find. There is no "trash" in it (fat, hard skin or veins). Very tender. The onion rings and hushpuppies are melt in your mouth good. Conveniently located next to business 85.

“Just OK!”
Reviewed November 27, 2012 via mobile

Smells great from outside! BBQ was ok. Gary's in China Grove much better and more food for your money. Service was bad. We had to flag her down from across the restraurant since when she was at the table beside us, she ignored us. No refills until we asked. No to go cups offered. Basically they drop your food off and never come back. Not the best in the area by a long shot.
