We chose this restaurant because we grew up with a Leftys BBQ in Decatur. I was a little surprised at the cost of the BBQ plate but when they brought it there was at least a lb and 1/2 on the plate. We took the leftovers home and had for lunch the next day. They served it with fried cornbread!!!... More

Our choice for bbq ribs. They are dry ribs with three sauces on the table. I always get the fried okra and green beans, but they have several side choices. I like their cornbread, too. We'll go for lunch to have pulled pork sandwiches.

Has wonderful baked beans, green beans, and potato salad, we didn't get the ribs because we made our own, we just got the fixins. The staff was wonderful and so helpful.

Conveniently located right off I-40 but filled with regular patrons. The pulled pork sandwich and banana pudding were excellent.

We made Lefty's our last dinner stop in Crossville. We made the choice based of the reviews. The owner visited every table with a friendly smile and providing gratitude for choosing Lefty's. My husband had the catfish with baked beans and pinto beans. The double bean order was due to dental issues. The fish was well cooked but lacked flavor.... More

Our group had a variety of items ranging from barbecue pork, salads, ribs, onion rings, etc. No complaints. Service was good, waitress friendly, and servings plentiful.

The food was great and the service was good. It was a quiet time of day so no waiting. Prices are in line with other eating places in area.

Expensive for family. Young girl waited on us. Terrible service. Seemed to be bothering her to ask for something.

Our retired teacher group meets there every couple of months. The food is good. They offer sandwiches, soups, salads, pork-loaded baked potatoes (my favorite),etc. Friendly staff. Good service.

Place was clean and sparsely decorated. Food was OK but not great. Small portions for the price you have to pay.
