Rather than facing the costs of a major renovation, I've heard that the owner has decided to sell the restaurant. Haven't heard what is going to be in its place, or whether, in fact, the owner has found a buyer. As a Lexington resident, I've...More

Since I'm local, I though I would try this place since I had not been here in years and years. Won't be going back. The barbeque I believe is cooked with electricity and did not taste at all like Lexington style barbeque is supposed to...More
