Lexington (NC) BBQ Notes

David A. | Jul 14, 200204:41 PM     15

I recently made a special trip to taste the famous Lexington Barbecue only to find it closed for the July 4 weekend. I was crushed, but on my way back out of town passed a miniscule joint on the E. Center Street Extension called Lexington Style Trimmings. I stopped in and to my surprise had some of the best cue I have ever eaten. I opted for the sliced cue with slaw and hushpuppies -- all three were excellent. The puppies were unusually interesting, as they had a kind of moist, melting interior, and the onion-sugar contrast was especially sharp. A word of warning: the joint is seriously grubby.

Has anyone else tried this place?
