Wayne Monk opened The Lexington Barbecue restaurant in Lexington, NC 43 years ago and had been in the barbecue business for 10 years before that, starting out as a car hop. His brother opened a barbecue stand and it became the Lexington Barbecue #2. "After he sold out, I dropped the #1," Monk said. "But many people still refer to it as the Lexington #1" Aside for some minor changes, Monk said his business is still the same as when he opened. "We're still in the past but I like that. That's the way I want to live my life. I'm still back in the 50s and 60s and I really don't want to change"
