Lefty's is located conveniently right off Interstate I-40, but realize that this is a LOCAL establishment and you get REAL, wood-smoked Tennessee BBQ. I personally don't even need to add BBQ sauce until I'm about half-way through a plate of Lefty's slow-smoked, pulled pork. It...More

I'm a fan of BBQ, and my wife usually placates me now and again. I got the brisket, and she got the smoked turkey, which was supposed to be white meat. When I pointed out that there was quite a bit of dark meat, the...More

Pulled pork and the combo were great. Way too much food. The coleslaw was good too. Three young ladies provided excellent and friendly service. You need to stop and eat here. I'll be back next time I am in the area.

This restaurant has operated in the area for a long time. When they built their new building and moved to the new location, they did not take their good food and service with them. The food was poor and the waitress was rude.

Nice bright restaurant with friendly staff. Pulled pork portions were tasty and large. Salads were a little watery so I'd go for the fries (which looked delicious but we didn't actually get a chance to try).
