Pure heaven. The Nirvana of pigmeat. The apotheosis of pork.
These folks make the tastiest, most tenderest, and bestest bbq I have yet encountered.
There's usually a line of locals and pilgrims going out the door, but the wait is
worth it. Try it sliced, chopped, coarse chopped, or outside chopped--my favorite.
They also make a really weird but tasty "barbecue slaw," which is brown and tangy
and goes perfectly with the bbq. (From what I've gathered, this is the standard
regional slaw). The side dishes aren't
all that interesting, and Speedy's has better sauce, but no other shack in the state
can cook a
pig like Lexington Barbecue #1. The sooner you go, the happier you'll be. -The Mayor
