I won't even sell somebody a barbecue unless they get cole slaw. If they want a barbecue and they don't want cole slaw, there's something wrong with that person.  It all goes together. You've got to have cole slaw and hush puppies with barbecue.

Smoke Daddy's Review of Lazy J Bar-B-Que


<<Update: Looks like this joint has received a significant facelift... possible change in ownership?  Hope the physical changes are mirrored in the food operations!>>

MAIN FARE:Lazy J Spread

  • Brisket - Where's the smoke? Pot-roast consistency... its been slow-cooking in the oven for quite a while.
  • Spare Rib - Tender... but where's the FLAVOR?
  • Sausage - Nothing special here.
  • Pork Chop: The first chop on the tour draws initial excitement... but we're disappointed with the skinny, boneless version of a 'pork chop' served here. Leaves me flat.


Lazy J Case

  • Potato Salad - creamy. soft taters, but still very bland.
  • Beans - good texture, nice flavor. The beans may be the best thing here!


  • Nice looking joint; We pull up out front just before an outer band of 'Claudette' blows through.
  • Very sturdy furniture.
  • All women crew working behind the counter...Lazy J Pit
  • Nice folks with a Southern Pride gas cooker... however, there was no wood in this oven during our tour.
  • We look longingly across the way at Cow Camp BBQ (not open on Wednesday), and wonder if we've chosen wisely.
