Stamey's is open on Sundays. That's just about the only good thing I can say about this place. We ordered the coarse chopped barbecue, and everyone agreed that the "pork" tasted suspiciously like turkey. If that was pig we were eating, then it was the most uninspired pig this side of that bored looking "world's largest hog" at the state fair. Same goes for the sauce and the slaw.
But wait, there's more. The decor is just godawful. Stamey's looks like a cross between a demented American Graffitti set and an over-reaching Howard Johnson's. Even the menu sucks: it's stupid and cutesy, and it even includes two of the absurd "stars-as- pigs" illustrations that besmirch the walls of this execrable abomination of a barbecue joint.
Better to keep kosher on Sundays than go to Stamey's, if you ask me.--The Mayor
The laminated menu includes a page about "Lexington History." In fact, it is a collection of dumb pig facts and other claptrap that almost makes me (Alec) want to be a vegetarian again:
