Has the best barbecue, hushpuppies are to die for! Served on a sandwich, tray or plate, chopped or sliced. Delicious!

Delicious BBQ, the hush puppies are my family's favorite here. Always a good consistent meal. The prices are a bit higher here than other BBQ joints in the area, however BBQ is very good.

In my opinion, best BBQ in Lexington. They have a 'mini' tray which is perfect for those with smaller appetites. AND the wait staff never let's you run out of southern sweet tea!

Lexington BBQ is located right off Bus. 85 highway. It's one of the original BBQ restaurants in Lexington and has been open for decades. To have authentic, NC BBQ, stop by. It's a no-frills atmosphere with delicious food.

In a town with unlimited barbecue choices, this one is the one that most of us locals go to when we are in the mood for barbecue. Expect to wait in a line for a table, but the food is excellent. If you aren't a barbecue fan, try their turkey sandwich. Awesome stuff. Their sweet tea is a southerners dream.

We stopped for a late lunch on Saturday but the place was still packed. Nothing fancy but very friendly people and a comfortable "make yourself at home" atmosphere. We both had the coarse chopped plate and it arrived very quickly, fresh, and piping hot. The pork was absolutely perfect - tender, sweet, with just the right amount of tangy dip.... More

Being from the South, I consider myself a connoisseur of BBQ. I've had pig 100 ways to Sunday. This is decent BBQ. I had the chopped plate and the portions were large. But, the BBQ was a little watery. The BBQ slaw was great, fries were good, hushpuppies were good. My son ordered onion rings and they were excellent. Service... More

Heard nothing but great things about this restaurant, but was not happy with it. Hush puppies were great (crispy and corny!), french fries were great (crispy!), barbecue was "wet." Tasted watery and flavorless. Place was full of people, and many takeout orders were obvious. We must have had a bad batch!

Thank CVC J
