This is my husband and mine favorite barbecue restaurant on Walton Avenue in Lexington Kentucky. I enjoy the sides here they are especially good such as the greens, potatoe salad, slaw, and baked beans!  You need to get to the restaurant as soon as they open for lunch because sometimes the line forms but the wait is not bad and is efficiently moved along!  The building is small and is not fancy with the blue door!  This is a locally owned restaurant and not a chain with this being the only location.  They do not have many tables and have a soda machine for self serve and a condiment bar.  We enjoy the food and are always full and pleased with our food.  You need to try this place if you get a chance. The Blue Door Smokehouse is a must eat location if you are a fan of great barbecue!
Among the best beef brisket I've ever had and The Best in Lexington, KY! This has nice bark, the blackened outside of the meat with a nice red smoke ring underneath. The brisket is moist and falls apart, melts in your mouth and arguably doesn't need sauce because it's so good by itself! We also tried the vinegar and creamy slaw. Both were excellent for their respective flavor profiles. The red potato salad was also a hit. In all, if this place can deliver brisket like this consistently, this place should be fitted with a revolving Blue door.
Absolutely amazing!!!! And the review about the sauces being 1 star... I give them 5!!! I got the sweet. It was a light fresh sweet flavor. Not thick and sticky. My husband got the spicy. I asked him if he liked it, he said, "OH YEAH! Not so hot that I couldn't eat it." I also got the creamy slaw. Loved it! Fresh and creamy! My husband got the baked beans. They were thick and had a smokey chili flavor. He loved it. But I'm a fan of the sweet tangy baked beans. Pulled pork sandwich: tons and meat, juicy and tender! Pulled chicken sandwich: tons of meat, juicy and tender! We will definitely be back and highly recommend this place.
