I don’t know what’s up with these reviews; but Lefty’s has the best bbq in the DMV. Yes, you do have a bit of a wait when it’s busy; but it’s worth the wait. I have had some of the best bbq in the U.S, and am one of the biggest critics around. If you don’t like Lefty’s, you don’t know anything about bbq!

Best NC BBQ we have ever eaten. The sides were so good too. We didn't try one thing that wasn't delicious!

It was my girlfriend and I first experience at Lefty’s. A friend referred me to this place. We were not disappointed at all. We both had the chicken and ribs platter. The macaroni and cheese was good as well as the greens and cabbage. We also enjoyed hush puppy’s and quesadilla.

The real deal. Worth the wait! We have road tripped across the US & down the east coast. This place has the best NC BBQ bar none. Perfect texture, perfect spice & perfect bun. Hubby said the beef brisket is as good as the best he ever had in Texas.

My husband and I recently visited Lefty's to purchase dinner to go. There was an issue with our food, so I reached out to LaTonya, the manager, regarding our concerns. Not only did she accommodate us by going above and beyond by providing us with a corrected order, but she also provided us with a gift card for the inconvenience! He ... read more

They are the masters of fried food! Their fried chicken thighs are seriously the best - well seasoned with crispy exterior and juicy meat. And at a great price too.

two days ago was our first time in this excellent restaurant. But It is definitely not the last. We enjoyed the evening a lot with the excellent service, with the high quality food and wine and with the friendly charge. We will definitely visit there in a short time.

I dine in this lovely place from time to time! This is my favorite spot to grab a bite. I visit this spot regularly. The meals are excellent, the team is friendly and the prices are good. I like going in this restaurant for a rich lunch.

By far some of the best tasting food I’ve had since I’ve been in Maryland. I personally don’t eat much meat, but my family does. Our order included the brisket, chicken, spicy and regular catfish, spareribs, baby back ribs, greens, cabbage, potato salad, macaroni and cheese, hush puppies, and cornbread. Can you say YUM! The adults a ... read more

I absolutely love coming here. I don't usually write reviews, but I have to do one for this place. Best sweet tea i've ever had in my life. The ribs are delicious and the meat falls right off the bone. Best garlic mash potatoes, hands down. I will most definitely be coming back here again .☺ ... read more

I have not yet been here to eat, but it has been on my To Do List for years:) It is not close to my home at all, but I'm in the area a lot because it is a part of a beautiful Business Park/Shopping Area and I try to visit this area as often as I can. As is routine for me, I decided to call to see what type of reception I would get be ... read more
