Our Story

Roy's Grille was founded in 2014 by Chris Williams. Roy's Grille is named for Williams' hardworking grandfather, Leroy Carter, who woke up at 5am to work odd jobs before reporting for duty at the local sawmill, where he oftentimes worked until midnight.

Chef Chris says, "My mother and grandmother started the fire that burns inside of me to cook food," Williams said. "I grew up asking questions, learning to make rice and fry chicken."

In just a few short years, Roy's Grille has made the news on many occasions & is a favorite restaurant in town. We're used to be able to say 'Lexington's Best Kept Secret' but we're not much of a secret anymore.

We make everything from scratch including our in-house smoked and cured bacon. You'll also find housemade Pimento Cheese and Five Signature Barbeque Sauces on our menu.
