Place has been here a long time - finally stopped by one afternoon. It's ok....nothing special, and a bit expensive for what it was: BBQ plate for $10. If you're famished, and nothing else is open, this will do; otherwise, keep driving. BBQ bought in store and heated up at home is just as good.

Only place that looked good enough to stop in and eat before visiting RCR Racing that wasn't just another fast food place. Breakfast was good, inexpensive and wait staff was friendly.

Food was good and very reasonable. About 3 miles from RCR museum & shops. Had pork BBQ sandwiches with onion rings and cheeseburgers. Food came out quick & hot. Staff very friendly and kept drink glasses full.

We stopped here on the way back from a local winery. The portion was big and the bbq was good. Nothing to go out of the way to get but solid food.

I love barbeque and this place is one of Lexington's established true barbeque facilities. I have been here several times and the food is very good. My husband likes their ribs.

I'm not a huge barbecue fan but this was probably some of the best I've had in a while. Was in Welcome a few years ago working for the pipeline and we are here regularly. Awesome service. Great food. Would recommend. Only complaint was there was a lot of drama with the waiters/waitresses at the time that people were airing... More

a long time ago, Winston-Salem/Forsyth County had a ban on BBQ smokehouses. You had to drive to Lexington (or Welcome) to get some good BBQ. Kerley's was a little hole in the wall place with really good BBQ and we would drive over once a month or so. They have moved to a new building and the BBQ isn't as... More

This is a great place for BBQ and Hush Puppies. It is pricey for a family of four but the food is good if you are in the area.
