Always thought this was the greatest BBQ anywhere. . . .until they started grinding instead of hand chopping. Now it's like a mushy mess! Sure wish they would toss out the grinders.

Excellent food and best BBQ in the USA. We eat here very often and it is always good. Pit cooked old style and that is hard to find anymore.

Best barbecue, food, and service hands down. The staff is extremely friendly, the cooks definitely know what they're doing, and you can get in and out in 10 minutes if you're in a rush. A must-visit if you travel through or live in Lexington.
