First time visit. Walked in and we were greeted like family. We were there at happy hour, they have free fried pork skins. I thought it would be a couple of bites. Oh no, that is not how they treat family. It was a big platter that continued to pop and sizzle for a good five minutes and they were... More

Excellent bbq ribs priced average for everyone . Tender finished on the grill in store with the best sauce ever. Always very lean and more than I could eat every time I go I have tried all the sides and approve all. The desserts need improvement. the pies leave something to be desired. The staff are very friendly and will... More

We had Lefty's cater our company bbq in July. It was beyond hot that day but the servers did the best they could with the day and kept the food coming and the ice flowing. Food was great (we had pork ribs, smoked chicken, mac and cheese, collard greens, sweet potatoes, coleslaw, lemonade, tea and cupcakes). Plentiful -- enough for... More

After being closed well over two years due to a fire, Lefty's catered our annual Community Day. The turkey burgers were the best I have seen at a restaurant in a long time. The display made the food even more inviting. The side items and condiments were all set up with care. The food was delicious and plentiful.

My overall experience with Lefty' catering my family event was outstanding. This started with the delivery and setup to the food; everything was great. John provided excellent setup service and a family member who is a retired caterer commented on the great setup. Everyone wanted to know who did the food because it was so good. Thank you LaTanya, John... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Lefty's--delicious tilapia and mac n' cheese, coleslaw. However, check your bill before you leave; we didn't realized later that we were overcharged. Don't let this keep you from trying Lefty's, just be sure to check your bill.

Overpriced!!! $50.00+ for 3 take out dinners. Dinner included 2 very small sides (actually you can feed a small child with the portion size). The sauce on ribs were bland. Catfish was good but too expensive! This was my first and last visit at Lefty's.
