I have eaten hear more times than I can count. They have the best stuffed potato around. I enjoy their ham stuffy and the turkey stuffy. My husband enjoys their pork nachos. I do wish the Lewisburg location had a dining area like the location in Athens. I started eating at Lawlers when I attended Athens State University because it... More

I so wish they had a dining area. The line to get in causes me to eat elsewhere many times. They really need to address the drive thru jams. That being said their bbq and sides are very good. Love the Brunswick stew.

Lawler's is our family's favorite barbeque. We have been more times than I can count to the Lewisburg location. We have since moved over an hour away, but we drove there in March to surprise our daughter with her favorite food for her birthday. The prices are great, and the food is even better. Their Brunswick stew is delish, as... More

Lawlers is takeout only with a drive thru window and a walk up window. It really is the best BBQ I have ever eaten. It is moist and tender, and their sauce is thick and delicious. The loaded potatoes are fabulous, and the sweet tea is the perfect southern sweetness! They have several locations but I love the Lewisburg spot.... More

I am SO in love with this BBQ establishment. I was never a fan of BBQ (From NY) and I have to say I love all of their food, especially the loaded potatoes. If you love potatoes I am telling you, hands down the BEST I have ever had! They are loaded with your choice of meat, butter, cheese, sour... More

This is a drive-thru restaurant, not a sit down establishment. However, they have some of the best loaded baked potatoes I've tasted in my life. Their prices are extremely reasonable, as well. Definitely worth checking out!

Drive thru and take out only. No dining room. About 5 miles east off I65 Exit 32. The way it is... Using old-fashioned recipes and time honored traditions, we still smoke barbecue real slow in our USDA facility in Tennessee. This insures the highest quality and consistency so that every customer at every location gets the same tasty, tender, juicy barbecue. We have developed systems and procedures that allow us to offer you almost fast food speed of service...yet everything is made as you order! We always have plenty...so if you need a big order at the last minute...we have you covered! In an age where most pork barbecue is cut, chopped, or ground by machine...we still hand-pull or "pick" the meat from the bone. Sure it's harder and takes longer...but our "pickers" (as we affectionately call them!) are our best quality control. Their trained and caring touch leaves only the leanest, moistest pork...lightly sauced to let the great hickory flavor burst through in every bite!! Guess you could say...we keep pickin' so you'll keep grinnin' The truth of the matter... Because we are just a "little barbecue joint" ...not near as fancy or as famous as some...we know we must try harder to earn your business. We want to be faster, cleaner, and tastier. We cannot be everything to everybody, so we just want to be everything to YOU. At LawLers Barbecue we believe in "cooked slow...served fast! We think you deserve Tickled Pink Service! We don't need to win trophies or contests...we win when you become a regular customer! If you haven't tried us yet...what are you waitin' for?
