The food is good, the restaurant is clean and the staff are so friendly. Other restaurants claim they treat you like family but Lawler’s treats us better than family!

We are a chain of locally owned quick service barbecue restaurants that feature slow smoked hand-pulled bbq meats and southern sides. You order at the drive thru window (no speaker system!) so you get our full personalized attention. Inside diners order at the counter and your order is usually ready before you get your drinks. Rustic fishing decor theme. We strive for excellence in all we do and are here to serve YOU! Col. 3:23 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. LawLers Barbecue...Taste the difference!
