A few words about us

Let us introduce ourselves

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 him 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 the 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, South Carolina putting us in the heart of Southern bar-b-que.  Immediately we began catering to Columbia College and 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!  We are excited to be a part of the Lexington community and share our delicious bar-b-que with our new found family!

Our Customers LOVE PK BBQ!

Customer Reviews

“Found this place by accident while getting some gas. They were smoking the meat right out front.  This joint is in the BP gas station parking lot. Some of the best BBQ I’ve had. The owner was really friendly came over and checked on us. The guys up front were really nice as well. Simple menu done right. If your itching for some BBQ it is worth the trip. Sweet and spicy sauce is da bomb!”

“This place is great. Very local, very conscientious owner, really delicious food. Found it by accident when I stopped for gas, so glad I did! I couldn’t decide between the pork and chicken, was offered a taste of each. So good…I think maybe they should offer combo plates! Wonderful place.” (NOTE: We now offer a Slider Combo with all 3 of our sandwiches)
