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.

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.

Great Pulled Pork. Hushpuppies are excellent, good hamburgers and great chicken. We try to stop in Kerley's everytime we go to North Carolina! The food is not high and the taste is great!
