Yummy, nice and smokey! They give extra sauce on the side, without being asked. Also have very pleasant and patient cashiers!!

I’m not from this area and was informed Lefty’s the best for fish. I WOULD HAVE TO AGREE!!! I was starting to worry after waiting 25 minutes, but it was worth it. Tasted a piece at the counter HOT & FRESH; that piece didn’t make it to the house. :-). It was a great first impression. My sides were green beans and potato salad; bo ... read more

Lefty's is one of our favorite restaurants and the best place to eat anything barbecue along with a wide variety of fantastic side dishes and cornbread. The staff there is friendly and courteous.

Lefts has catered several events for my employer and my colleagues ALWAYS rave about the food and catering staff service. Lefty's food is phenomenal! They never disappoint.

Boy I sure was lucky to find Leftys BBQ while travelling 1.5 hours from home. Great service but most important over the top smoked delicisousness. I had chicken & ribs, perfectly dry rub flavored, hickory smoked and fire crisped. Be careful not to just lather BBQ sauce all over everything. The sauce is great and adds another layer of ... read more

Awesome BBQ. I was steered here by a friend who loves brisket and it was the best. I've since been back and tried the NC BBQ and it was great as well. Especially with homemade potato chips. Friendly staff and good music.

Best North Carolina pork barbecue in Maryland.
randy naylor via - Apr 21, 2019
Best brisket sandwich I have ever eaten! My dining companions loved their ribs with cabbage side, and Carolina BBQ. Fried whiting was also excellent. Together with friendly service and Motown music backdrop, it was the perfect end to a wonderful spring bike ride on the Indian Head trail. We shall return!

My family rarely passes through Brandywine without stopping at Lefty's to either dine in or carry out.  Great BBQ and really good sides. Friendly and helpful staff, too.

One of the best BBQ places in the dmv area. Only one critique is that lefty's should always have the hot BBQ sauce for customers so they don't have to buy it to have it.
Micheal Jordan via - Apr 1, 2019
I'm so glad we stopped at this place while we were traveling to the state of Maryland. While we're eating I can't tell you how many times you said wow, oh my gosh, or this is the best we've ever had. If you ever travel anywhere near here we will be stopping in.

I absolutely love coming here.
I absolutely love coming here. They have the best sweet tea I've ever had and their ribs are delicious!! Meat just falls right off the bones. The mash potatoes are sooo good. Best mash potatoes i've ever had, hands down. If you're looking for a great BBQ spot, this is it right here.
