Once the historic landmark anchoring Liberty Lunch’s footprint, Lamberts was established in 2006 by Larry McGuire, Tom Moorman Jr., and Will Bridges in the revamped J.P. Schneider Store, built in 1873. Now it's a legit barbecue joint downstairs, and a swanky bar upstairs, complete with a stage for enjoying nightly live music, local beers, and slow smoked barbecue.

No-frills, award-winning, mesquite-smoked brisket, pork loin, sausage, chicken, and sandwiches have been served from the same smoke-redolent shack since 1943. Lunch only.
