About Lexington Barbecue Restaurant

BBQnGRILL's picture

Wayne Monk opened The Lexington Barbecue restaurant in Lexington, NC 43 years ago and had been in the barbecue business for 10 years before that, starting out as a car hop. His brother opened a barbecue stand and it became the Lexington Barbecue #2. "After he sold out, I dropped the #1," Monk said. "But many people still refer to it as the Lexington #1" Aside for some minor changes, Monk said his business is still the same as when he opened. "We're still in the past but I like that. That's the way I want to live my life. I'm still back in the 50s and 60s and I really don't want to change.”
