Monk: I recently stopped by The Barbecue Center in Lexington for the first time in a few years for a lunch with the Monk clan. Here was my experience in photos.
The barbecue tray with red slaw is the classic order.
A basket of fresh hush puppies comes with every tray or plate order (the plate comes with fries as well).
I wandered around the building to check out their wood pile for the first time, and this was just a couple of the piles of wood right off the smokehouse.
Another view of the stacked pile against the building.
There’s a couple different styles of signs on the property, and this is one at the far end of the parking lot along N. Main Street.
The Barbecue Center is my second favorite barbecue restaurant in town behind Lexington Barbecue and this was yet another great lunch. For my full rankings, check here.
