Not my favorite barbque but it is becoming my mothers favorite. Barbque is such an individual taste. They have a great Wednesday special. Great potatoe salad.

There are barbecue restaurants everywhere in the Tennessee Valley but Lawlers is one of the best. The food is excellent and the price is reasonable. If you are eating inside the restaurant it can get a little cramped, especially during the lunch rush, but it...More

Their loaded potatoes are spectacular! You can also choose a lunch or a dinner plate depending on what time it is. Check this place out!

I tried the BBQ pork plate with sides. I was disappointed because every item tasted as if i had been made with vinegar in some way. I am not certain if I will try other menu options next time I'm in the area.More

Not exactly what we hope to hear but honest to the bone. Thank you. And quite truthfully most of our bbq meats are basted or sauced with a vinegar base marinade in the Alabama style of cue. Slaw is definitely a sweet tart vinegar type...More

The way it is... Using old-fashioned recipes and time honored traditions, we still smoke barbecue real slow in our USDA facility in Tennessee. This insures the highest quality and consistency so that every customer at every location gets the same tasty, tender, juicy barbecue. We have developed systems and procedures that allow us to offer you almost fast food speed of service...yet everything is made as you order! We always have plenty...so if you need a big order at the last minute...we have you covered! In an age where most pork barbecue is cut, chopped, or ground by machine...we still hand-pull or "pick" the meat from the bone. Sure it's harder and takes longer...but our "pickers" (as we affectionately call them!) are our best quality control. Their trained and caring touch leaves only the leanest, moistest pork...lightly sauced to let the great hickory flavor burst through in every bite!! Guess you could say...we keep pickin' so you'll keep grinnin' The truth of the matter... Because we are just a "little barbecue joint" ...not near as fancy or as famous as some...we know we must try harder to earn your business. We want to be faster, cleaner, and tastier. We cannot be everything to everybody, so we just want to be everything to YOU. At LawLers Barbecue we believe in "cooked slow...served fast! We think you deserve Tickled Pink Service! We don't need to win trophies or contests...we win when you become a regular customer! If you haven't tried us yet...what are you waitin' for?
