Lexington-style BBQ

Posted August 10, 2009 7:53 a.m. EDT

No need to fire up a full fledged debate about who makes the best barbecue in North Carolina but I did want to tell you about a place I visited over the weekend. We were headed to the mountains for a potluck dinner party. We decided to take barbecue as our dish. Why not pick some up on the way in Winston-Salem.

I checked the internet and noticed lots of five star reviews for a place called "Little Richard's." Good choice. We picked up a couple of pounds of Little Richard's chopped barbecue. It was the hit of the party. Great taste. Nice slaw, too. Bring cash. They don't accept credit cards. But the price is right and the food is fabulous.

Little Richard's, which bills itself as a Lexington-style barbecue restaurant, is located on Country Club Road in Winston-Salem. It is a small and unpretentious building. The food is delicious. I highly recommend it.

What is your favorite Lexington-style barbecue restaurant? Please share.
