This is the best BBQ in Lexington, and indeed my all time favorite. Order the coarse chopped with extra brown and you won't go wrong. Juicy, flavorful and perfect. The bad reviews on here all mention Speedy's - makes me think they were

I have been going to Lexington BBQ since I was old enough to eat solid food (that's a long darn time!). I grew up in Asheboro, NC, and lunch at Lexington #1 was a regular Saturday treat (it was originally named after the owner). Even with their additions and modern conveniences in the kitchen, the 'que is as fresh and as tasty as I remember.

Our family grew up eating the sliced barbeque there because you could really bite into all the flavor of the pork. I still prefer it to the chopped, but the chopped is awesome too! The slaw is BBQ slaw - don't expect white slaw with your 'que. The hushpubbies are crispy, hot, and divine! There's just not much more you can say about a great barbeque meal.

Over the years I have enjoyed other things at Lexington #1, but nothing as much as a sliced plate piled high with mouth-watering goodness. It is worth the gas and the time to drive over to Lexington to get the original.

If you like eastern NC barbeque, Memphis ribs and 'que, or Texas' barbeque, you won't find it here. This is WESTERN NC barbeque at its BEST!!

Pros: Que, slaw, puppies, service, and atmosphere

Cons: It's not in WInston-Salem

Awesome food and service. The only problem I have when I eat here is trying to decide whther to order barbecue or the hand-patted, fresh cheeseburgers.

You've heard of em. You know where they are, and you are wondering if it is worth the drive. Well folks...all I can say is that it is all about the attitude and sense of adventure. Yes, it really is just pulled pork, but that is the beauty of it. Simple food cooked well. No brisket...no ribs....shoot! No chicken (much to my hubby's dismay)
But there is heart and soul in that cedar slow roasted pork. And you drive all this way, not just for the bbq sandwich, hushpuppies and Cherwine (or sweet tea I guess) You make the trip to visit the quaint shops and go searching for the pigs. You do it for the smiles. If you just want a sandwich...go to McyDs. If you want a really good pork sandwich and an experience...then Lexington BBQ is the right place. ( No I don't work for them...I just love 'em!)

Pros: Slow cooked, family owned...down home traditional food

Cons: Could offer more variety for the far reaching legacy

My wife and I came here years ago and thought the BBQ was great. In fact, we took some BBQ "to-go" back home with us.

We came there to enjoy a great meal again and we were SORELY disappointed. The BBQ was tasteless and mushy, the coleslaw was sour and watery, and the sweet tea was barely sweet in its slushy mixture. When we asked for more sauce, we expected it to have some consistency so that it might help the flavor. Instead, we received a cup of vinegary, broth-like colored water. Disgusting! Not only would I never recommend or return to this restaurant, but I wouldn't feed it to my dog.

I wish that I could get back the $20 that I wasted, not to mention--my appetite. What a great disappointment. If this continues, you'll be out of business just like the furniture industry that's almost absent in the surrounding area!

Drove a long way to try this place and found they only served pulled pork. What? No ribs? No brisket? ( Or sliced beef as they refer to it around here). The pork was just OK to us. Maybe we just prefer the south western style of BBQ. A better place with beef, ribs and pork is Cooks BBQ IMO. We won't be back.

I had heard about Lexington 1 for some time (even watching segments about the restaurant on the food network) so I was quite excited to finally visit the place. First let me say that the hushpuppies there are among the best I've had - light and crispy outside and perfectly cooked and seasoned inside; the bbq slaw was tasty as well. Of course we didn't go there for slaw and puppies, so next came the Que...what a let down! We ordered the regular chopped and the coarse chopped with "outside brown" which is the outside bit of meat that come in closest contact with the heat/fire when cooking. The regular chopped que was very bland and extremely wet! I like moist bbq, but this tasted like it had been overcooked then water was added to compensate. The coarse chopped was even worse - dry, charred strips of what I assumed had at one point been pork - I couldn't eat it all. I'm glad I had the experience, but I can't say that I'll ever go back to this restaurant...what a disappointment. I only give Lex 1 two stars for the great hushpuppies and slaw. Luckily enough while driving through the quaint Lexington, NC and visiting a popular jewelry shop it was suggested that the best place to eat que in Lexington is Speedy's...boy were they right...great barbecue (I'll write a full review on the "Speedy's" page).

We dont live far from Lexington and every time we go anywhere near them, my DH and I have to stop! I am craving it just thinking about it! The girls that work in there are so friendly and its just a down home kid friendly place, which is great for us and our 2 year old!

This is where it all started. Most people come to Lexington looking for Lexington BBQ. Nice environment and friendly staff. Exactly what you imagine when you think of a pit bbq location.

I just love Lexington BBQ #1. The food is outstanding and I especially love the coarse chopped. Also, I love that the owner-- Wayne Monk is always there to greet you with a smile and friendly service.

I had been drooling over the opportunity to visit Lexington #1 for weeks and when the big day finally occured I felt the wind go out of my sails BIG TIME. I was sorely disappointed in the Que and even moreso the slaw. I will have to say that if this is a contender for the best Western NC style Que then I will stick with a mediocre version of Eastern NC Que any day.

The service was nothing to get excited about and the food was even less so.

I have been eating Que for some 65+ years and this doesn't even make the bottom of my list of favorites.

Pros: I really don't think I found any strong points.

Cons: What can I say except I don't believe the reputation represents the establishment and food.

My dad loved this place. He brought me back some of their "Smokehouse" bottled sauce and i just love it. I am trying to find a way to order some more. It is a different sauce then we use in Kentucky, but "wow", it sure is tasty. Please do yourself a favor and give it a try.

I am new to NC Barbecue, not very impressed. I cannot believe people like this place, in vast numbers. Very weak tasteless sauce. pickle juice slaw, very poor dry hamburger, one of the worst burgers my wife has eaten. Canned beans.
And last but not leats NO RIBS

I still cannot so many people go to eat there. Give me Texas or Memphis anyday

Three of us had the chopped coarse pork. It was dry. The portion was average in size. Liked the BBQ sauce and the slaw.
The service was excellent, and we had fun at this "landmark" BBQ joint.....until we got home when all of us were sick in the evening from what we ate. I won't go into the details, but it's not the kind of sick you get from the food being too spicy. We are all veterans of spicy Mexican, Thai and BBQ.
Wish I could say more positive things about our visit considering how nice the people were, and knowing it's probably not always like this. But this was our experience, and we will not be going back

I don't know if New Comers to the area that are Looking for BBQ Know it or not But Lexington BBQ Off of I-85 is one of the areas first and Yes, all of the BBQ Cooks around learned from Mr. Monk's Smoking Pork Shoulders. But I highly Recommend Little Richard's off of Hwy 109 & Gumtree Road, and then Secondly Little Richard @ Country Club Reason Because they the building is smaller and the only take CASH, boo!!

Clint, Richard's Brother, and Jess at Hwy. 109 can hook u up with some for the road or you next Party. I Highly Recommend Little Richard's !!

Cons: Overrated, a little dry and lots of fat, and skin pieces, yuck!

Have never found a better BBQ (pork) sandwich. I have to stop in when passing through Lexington, if for a quick bite to eat, or to take a pound with me on the road.
