Bradford sits close to a busy corner in south Lexington. It would be easy to miss were it not for the smell of the outdoor smoker shouting (figuratively) “You better get outta that car and taste some of this!” It’s a small place - seats...More

My hubby was wanting bbq ribs so I stopped here after reading rating on TripAdvisor. The ribs were tasty but cold. The sides were good. TripAdvisor lists this place as cheap eats. I don't agree.

The pulled pork was excellent and the brisket was very good. Really enjoyed the beans as well. We did not enjoy the other sides as much. The staff is really friendly, and the beer is plentiful.

Bradford BBQ at Zandale Shopping Center in Lexington Kentucky is a barbecue joint with soul. It's also a package store so you can get a cold one to go with your meal. Sweet. They've got tacos and sliders too, but I haven't tried those. Yet....More
