Venue Info

Look for the eponymous blue door, and you've found it: Blue Door Smokehouse, arguably the best barbecue spot in Lexington. The bare-bones counter service joint is only open for lunch, and even then we suggest you arrive early: whether sliced beef brisket or pulled pork, homemade coleslaw or crispy French fries, the food here sells out fast. If the kitchen hasn't been raided prior to your arrival, we suggest you opt for the ridiculously affordable combination platter and load up.
