A long time business in Lewisburg, Tn. Lawlers has several weekday specials on Sandwiches, Giant Baked Potatoes, etc. . They also have Salads, Ribs, Chicken..all very good and reasonably priced. They have a walk-up window and a drive thru window only.

I like the stuffed potatoes. My favorite is the beef stuffed, its big enough to share and have a salad on the side.

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.More

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?
