Stopped in for lunch while on our way to Durham Comicon. Had the $5 rib sandwich and sweet potato fries. The food was fantastic and the service was fast and friendly. Nice clean place too. We would stop in again for sure.

Never tried Lexington BBQ before, this place was delicious. Good and fast service. The bbq food was really good and I loved the hushpuppies.

This is the best BBQ in Winston Salem. I only give 4 stars for the BBQ. They still do it right and the sauce is great. Cannot go wrong. However, for your side item don't expect anything exciting. The hushpuppies are good--fries are just regular ol' fries. The rest of them are just dang disappointing. All the effort is put... More

Great place, friendly service, and quick delicious BBQ! I had a coarse chopped sandwich with their Lexington style sauce and slaw on it and it was great. I really liked their slaw. It's a red slaw. It was different than any I have had and it was wonderful with the pork. Pork was juicy and I liked the coarse chopped... More

Arrived ½ hr before they opened & owner saw us sitting in car. He asked if we'd like take-out, put our order in and he delivered. Couldn't have asked for nicer service and the chopped sandwiches with slaw (red or white) were excellent. Piled high with meat - delicious. Our thanks to a kind, considerate man who knows how's what... More

This is a fast food BBQ place, but it is totally purposed in providing the best BBQ you would want. They have BBQ chicken one day a week but the locals know they can get a hot BBQ sandwich fast and easy.

Our next NC BBQ Trail stop brought us here. We are happy it did. The sauce was a nice change compared to our eastern compadres. It added a slightly more smooth flavor to the vinegary eastern styles. The BBQ was good, although I think it was low on smoke flavor. However, without a doubt it was extremely tender and juicy.... More

No frills...no fluff. It will take you back to the good ole barbeque shacks of old. These days we have pork restaurants that invest in faux western or country decor. Little Richards serves large portions and has waitress's that remind one of the old southern tradition of treating patrons like family...a real rarity these days. If you want plastic and... More

Food is stellar....would like a gluten free hushpuppie option though. Always a pleasurable experience.

From the time you walk in the door until the minute you leave the experience is great. BBQ salad, ribs, wings, or just a BBQ plate your taste buds will not be disappointed, but go hungry . Onion rings, fries, homemade potato chip, and mouth watering hush puppies are just a few sides. TVs for watching games or what ever... More
