Lester's BBQ in Burlington

376 Cambridge Street
Rte 3A and 62 West

Went here for dinner the other night.


Really awesome "Memphis Dry-Rub Ribs"- thick, meaty and juicy. Very tender- almost a bit too tender- I like a bit more chew in my ribs. The meat practically fell off the bone, but not in that icky steamed way. Put it this way- I could eat them one-handed (pissy baby on my lap made me glad of that!) They had a nice bark on them, good smoky flavor. Pulled pork also very good. I liked the pickles a lot, coleslaw too. None of it tasted like it came off the Sysco truck. Hubby said the Longtrail Ale they had on tap was awesome.

Of the BBQ sauces they offered, I liked the hot best, the mustard-based one the least.

Beans were fine- I'm not a big bean person so I'm not the best judge. They were sweet and smoky.

Cornbread was fine- a bit dry and on the sweet side.

Hubby had dirty rice and said it was OK, he wouldn't order it again though.

The chopped Bar-B-Q Beef was not good- very dry. The brownie wasn't particularly good either.

I was REALLY surprised to read old reviews of Lester's say there was no smoke flavor. These very definitely smoky, with a good pink smoke ring.

We'll definitely go back- in fact I'm encouraging hubby to have them cater his next work BBQ.
