CUISINE: Barbecue, Sandwiches
FEATURES: Handicap Access, Kid Friendly, Smoke Free
DESCRIPTION
The bodacious barbecue at Lexington Barbecue, established in 1962 by Wayne "Honey" Monk,  is the quintessential Western North Carolina 'cue, with impeccable slow-smoked pork shoulder, vinegar-based red barbecue sauce, and their signature red slaw (no mayonnaise). Guest can even select which part of the shoulder they'd like on their sandwich, and hushpuppies are a crowd favorite as well.
"No complicated techniques or secret sauces are used in the cooking process. The shoulders simply loll in smoke for hours, becoming ambrosial. The meat is hacked into a hash that, while sloppy, is as elegant as silk - smooth in flavor as well as texture, but punctuated with a few chewy shreds of bark from the outside of the shoulder."
- Michael Stern, Roadfood.com, Dec. 25, 2009
ADDITIONAL DETAILS
No alcohol available. Serving lunch and dinner Mon-Sat. Closed Sun.
