I was thinking this was a sit down restaurant but it's more like a Zaxby's. You place your order at the counter and they call you when it's ready. I got the pork plate (inside cut) with baked beans and cole slaw. You add your...More

Great food, great staff, price was just right. We have a family of five ( 3 young kids) we ate the dinner for four and five drinks for less then $30. Fast service and really easy to get to from the interstate.

The Ribs saved the day on this trip. I had the sampler and the ham, chicken, beef, and pork were OK. The BBQ beans tasted as if they came from a can. The Mac and cheese was bland. The Cole saw was pretty good. I...More

LawLer's is my go-to place for take out barbecue. Superior barbecue is very rare, and LawLer's doesn't reach that level, but the food is pretty good. For me a good measure of a barbecue place is the quality of the sides (potato salad, baked beans,...More

Lawlers is literally around the corner from our new place and it has won our seal of approval. Not the best ever but no need to go far afield because it's close and very good. Service is fast and friendly. Pork and Turkey stand alone...More

Average pork. Do not even have chicken on the menu. My wife does like their huge potato stuffed with turkey. Restaurant dining area is typical BBQ cafe. They do not cook anything on site. They have a central location that does all the cooking and...More

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?
