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.

Smoke Daddy's Review of BBs Lawnside Bar-B-Que

My favorites were the ribs, sausage, and atmosphere.  Oh, and don't forget the awesome bread pudding! 

MAIN FARE:BBs Lawnside Spread

  • Brisket - Paper thin. Tender and moise enough to enjoy.  Flavor is OK...
  • Ribs - Nice color.  Will they taste as good as they look?   Well, I'm knawing at the bones.
  • Sausage - Very course grind with black pepper.  I like.  Casing snaps, but its not tough.  Italian seasonings here, but that doesnt matter.  Real good!
  • Pork - Tasty and not too greasy.  Not too much flavor in the crust/rub... its a little bland.
  • Burnt Ends - Fatty.  Second bite was more lean.  These are good.  A little spicy, but not overpowering


BBQ Crew at BBs Lawnside

  • Beans - Overwhelming sweetness up front is balanced by the jalapeno spice on the finish.  Beans are soft.
  • Fries - Battered wedge fries.  Good and crisp with soft insides
  • Potato Salad - Soft taters. Creamy mustard based... standard recipe.
  • Sauce - Orange, translucent.  Good with a hint of cinnamon.  Hot version is a little better.
  • Bread Pudding Rocks!  Best bread pudding on the tour


  • Big Parking Lot. Busy, bustling locationBBs Lawnside Pit
  • Long communal tables inside
  • Cold beer and live music
  • Blues on the jukebox when we walk in
  • Live music flyers and photographs as decor (reminds me of Antone's)
  • Granite pits.  Great history here.
  • Lindsay gave a great tour, and is the nicest guy!  He cooks over night... and all by feel.
