Yep, that's true. This place was once in a European magazine. These folks have been around a long time. It's great bar-b-que. Our favorite places are the "hole-in-the-wall" joints and this is one. Don't miss it.

It's a alright BBQ place but I'm used to Memphis BBQ so I guess for Lexington it's really good. I'm not fond of their BBQ sauce but I love the side dishes!

Stopped here and got some BBQ to go. Got the 2 lb with slaw and baked beans. When we got home about 30 minutes later, it was still hot enough to eat without heating it up. Really good BBQ and trimmings. Well worth the stop or drive to get.

Southern BBQ cooked over an open pit given that hickory taste. Atmosphere is casual, rustic with great food and company. Your service is fast, you place your order at a window then pick up your food and choose your own table to eat. You can savor every bite or rush thru eating if you are on your lunch time. Great...

I have been to over 300 BBQ joints, and this one is easily top five. I was there initially in 1992 and just returned. Zach Parker, son of the former owner who is deceased, now runs the business and is doing his father proud. Zach is extremely friendly and hospitable, not to mention a world class pit master. The whole... More

Stopped by for a quick dinner and got just that. As you finish ordering and paying, the food is ready. It was also quite good.

The employees are always friendly and cheerful. I've tried a lot of bbq throughout the state but nothing compares to Scotts. I recommend this restaurant to... More

6 Butt roast's were prepared at Scott's Bar-B-Que for a Rockabilly Hall of Fame induction in Jackson, Tennessee. Scott's prepared the meat to perfection. We had to pick up the finished product at 4 P.M. and it was right on time. When the Bar-B-Que was served, it looked fantastic! All the people mentioned how moist, tasty, and tender the meat... More
