We were on vacation and found this place on trip advisor. The food was very good and reasonably priced. The place was very clean and simple and the staff was very friendly. Loved the message that our waitress, Bailey, wrote on our check, "have a blessed day"! I will recommend this place to anyone who likes BBQ.

We were looking for a place to have dinner and enjoy barbecue so we found Lefty's on Trip Advisor. The place is very simple and very clean. Great Southern hospitality and great barbecue. We ordered the Sampler and shared, there was plenty we even had leftovers to take. The price was very reasonable as well. I would recommend this restaurant... More

The ribs are on the pricey side, but sandwiches and some of the other entrees are affordable. There are a variety of side dishes and homemade cobbler for dessert. The service was good.

One of many stops we have made on our trip around the US and this is at the top of our list. Friendly service, good food and reasonable prices. We were impressed with the option of serving sizes, regular or large. All food is prepared and cooked on site, had a personal inspection of the smokehouse.

Hello, Lefty's moved a few years ago from it's low ceiling'd, long tabled, original location in Fairfield, to a new building off the highway in Crossville. While I miss the intimacy of the older establishment, Lefty's is still a good example of Tennessee barbeque, and they still have the oil-cloth, gingham covered tables, with portions big enough to share at...

Homemade chips are served when you're seated and they are crunchy good. We enjoyed ribs, pulled pork, stew, baked beans...all delicious! Big servings so you won't leave hungry. We got peach & blackberry cobbler to-go. Definitely worth stopping here!

The pork tenderloin sandwich was outstanding! Thick slice of pork was moist and tender. Pulled pork sandwich was also really good! Enjoyed the sweet and slightly spicy barbecue sauces. (Not sure what a previous reader ate that was vinegary - we didn't find anything that was vinegar based.) Homemade potato chips were really good! We don't normally eat chips, but... More
