Clarks has great burgers, hot dogs and BBQ. Their BBQ chicken is the bomb. This is the Lexington style BBQ.

You can get chunky BBQ here as well as chopped and sliced. They make it themselves on-site. They always give me too much food, though. I have trouble finishing even a simple BBQ sandwich; the flavor and texture are excellent. Ambiance is small-town, which is nice when you want that experience.

Friendly and efficient service. Large portion of BBQ, flavor was ok, baked beans were average, white slaw was good, banana pudding was a disappointment, bananas were almost green, pudding was very bland. Would give them another chance on other items, not my favorite so far.

If you love Lexington style BBQ, this is the place to come. It is located easily off I-40 bypass on US-66 between the two I-40's and serves up the tastiest, smokiest BBQ pork and chicken. Their vegies are listed on a chalkboard and are homemade daily. It's a real down-home place to come for lunch or dinner, and you can... More

Exactly what you would expect in a NC barbecue place. Great food, plain decor and lots of sweet tea. The barbecue has a good smokey flavor. The French fries are nothing special, just the straight up frozen kind. The slaw and hush puppies are both good. Chicken is available if you don't like pork. There is a selection of veggies,...

Clark's Barbecue has my favorite Lexington style BBQ in the area. Their sauce has a good bite and isn't sweet. I especially enjoy their coarse chopped BBQ (I suggest asking for "outside brown." The staff are always friendly. It reminds me of the places I used to eat with my Dad when I was a kid and I very highly... More

We were on our way to Asheville and stopped at Clarks for lunch. The place was vintage, the help was perky and helpful and the food was great. If you are on I-40 by Winston-Salem, stop and try it.

We like going here and do so often. The BBQ is excellent, sides very good and meat choices exquisite. Try the coarse chopped BBQ sandwich. Omg. The Salisbury stew very good too. However, we don't invite friends with high "bathroom" standards. Both are not presentable at anytime. They aren't very clean but the real problem is the disrepair. Very unsightly.
