Red State BBQ… Lexington, Kentucky

Red State BBQ is a wonderful treat right outside of Lexington, Kentucky. If you love BBQ you can’t go wrong with this unique spot. This roadside restaurant has wonderful food. You know when you can’t get into the parking lot they have something great to offer. We have eaten at Red State BBQ twice and each time has been amazing. The menu is great, with lots of different options and the sides are amazing. I have to recommend the Mac and Cheese, it is incredible!


If you are going to the Kentucky Horse Park for a day of fun,  I strongly recommend trying this little joint right around the corner on Georgetown Road. The staff is very knowledgeable and greets you with a smile! They also offer catering and have a Food Truck as well. If you don’t follow them on Facebook be sure and check them out here.
