About PK BBQ
PK BBQ in Lexington boasts an interesting origin story. We’ll let owner Kenny Wells tell the story:
“With over 35 years as an elevator mechanic, I had a love for all things bar-b-que.
“I spent weekends firing up my run-of-the-mill charcoal grill, grilling anything I could. My passion for perfecting grilling techniques led my wife and children to surprise me with a grilling class instructed by a Bar-b-que Pit Master!
After that, there was no turning back.
“The class fueled the fire in my belly to take my grilling techniques to another level. I researched to find the perfect grill and began grilling for family events.
But grilling was only half of the process.
In the background, I was creating my secret bar-b-que sauce “Yank-a-Billy BBQ sauce,” hoping for the perfect blend of Northern meets Southern style BBQ sauce.
“My wife, Peggy, and I retired and moved to Lexington, putting us square in the heart of Southern bar-b-que. Immediately we began catering to Columbia College and the Liverpool Football Club.
What a hit!
“The overwhelming responses from those two customers encouraged us to look for the right quaint location to serve lunch and open the doors to PK BBQ!
Note: In early 2021, PK BBQ relocated to this location from their former location on Augusta Road.
“We are excited to be a part of the Lexington community and share our delicious bar-b-que with our new-found family!”
There is a lot to enjoy on the menu at PK BBQ.
If you’re in the area in the middle of the week, you want to be sure to stop by for “Rib Wednesday.” A half rack of ribs, one side and a drink for less than $11 is too good to pass up.
But ribs aren’t the only thing on the menu. There is something for everyone.
Sandwiches and plates with barbecued pork, chicken, or beef dot the menu. Sliders area also an option along with chicken salad.
Meats are also available by the pound.
PK BBQ offers a nice assortment of sides. Cole slaw, baked beans, and macaroni & cheese are some of the staple sides.
In addition, you’ll find that classic SC BBQ side, hash and rice.
All in all, the menu at PK BBQ provides all the essentials for a true SC BBQ experience, including Verna’s Banana Pudding!
