The only appropriate reaction to the news that Paul's Bar-B-Q, in Lexington, served its last meal this Fourth of July is, "Aw, dang."
Open for many years, although only on Saturdays and the Fourth, Paul's served some of the best barbecue in the Athens area, in a surpassingly picturesque environment.
To learn a little more about Paul's, if you never made it out there, you can read a bit about it and watch a short video about it on the Southern Foodways Alliance website.
The Athens location of Tin Drum, in Beechwood, has also closed.
