    I grew up in Lexington. The best place is Cooks BBQ on Rockcrusher Rd., near High Rock Lake. It is out in the boonies and you better take a GPS.


    The same owner also owns Back Country BBQ on Linwood Southmont Rd, about 1 mile from I85. This is where I would recommend. Order the sliced tray or coarse chopped, red slaw, and hush puppies.

    The most popular, and good food is Lexington BBQ on I85 Business Loop. Locally known as Honey Monks or "the Monk". It is popular, more crowded, and more expensive (relative to the other spots), but has excellent service and good food. Beware of the sweet tea, your spoon can stand up in it.

    Other joints are OK, Speedy's on Winston Road has good service (they all do) and large portions.

    Good Luck,
    Drop by Richard Childress Vineyards while you are there, there is nothing like stock car wine.

    I haven't been to all of them but the ones I have didn't inspire me to return. I suppose I just don't like the chopped to hell style too much.
