One of these days they'll get me.  They'll make me change my way of cooking, and when they do, that'll hurt my product. The style of barbecue we have here in Lexington is very unique. I think it will start to fade away.

ssweeney's Review of Crosstown Bar-B-Q

 MAIN FARE:T-Bone with Crosstown Staff

  • Brisket - Cut from the 'high', 'moist', or fatty side of a  fresh brisket.  Slices are marbled and tender.  Not too smoky, though...
  • Ribs - Cut from a fresh rack. Mmmm good.  Great flavor lives here!  Some sweetness present on the finish.  Subtle flavors... very nice!  Meat is a little on the fatty side.
  • Sausage - Good flavor.  Loosely packed, with a subtle spice.  Nice!


  • Sauce - Sweet, red, and kinda thin.  Doesn't cover the flavor of the meat
  • Potato Salad - Mustard/Creamy style.  Firm chunks of potatoes, but consistency is a little soupy.
  • Beans - OK.  

ATMOSPHERE:Crosstown Pit Boss

  • Down-home folks - very nice!  They make us feel welcome and T-Bone shares some brewskis
  • Brand new corrugated tin building; sparce decor
  • Bigger than original, but farther from the tracks
  • Meat served from foil and steam trays
  • Offset pit using oak wood
  • Too new - felt a little sterile
