Pork and beef bar-b-que cooked daily on a pit at the location. The smell alone makes you hungry and then when you taste their meat with their homemade bar-b-que sauce you will be ordering more to take home. Can't say enough good things about the food, friendly staff, and service.

Excellent BBQ and YUM slaw! Good French fries, too. No beans, no potato salad, but if you're looking for just the basics, this is it! Next time, will call ahead and take it to go for a fun picnic on or near the lake!

Our family has eaten Knoth's BBQ for many years. It is always good. If you want great BBQ, Knoth's is a must.

You cannot go wrong with this place. My kids and parents love it the food here. Whenever I am in Grand Rivers I go here for BBQ!

Western Kentucky has the best pork BBQ in the country and Knoth's is the best example of western Kentucky BBQ. Convenient to both Barkley and Kentucky Lakes, it's a Mom & Pop restaurant that's a blast from the past. Because I live nearby I always do carry-out, ordering a pound or two of pulled pork, but you can dine in... More

I have never eaten inside Knoth's, however I pick up 1 or 2lbs of BBQ to go at least once a month and everyone loves it. If you are having a family get together or just friends over for a picnic, this is a great go to for picking up that all will love!

My wife and I currently maintain homes in Marco Island, FL and Chesterfield, MO. Every time we travel between Florida and Missouri, or any other time we are in the area, we go out of our way to eat at Knoth's. We have traveled all across the country and enjoyed pulled pork for more than 50 years, and we know... More

We have been enjoying Knoth's BBQ after relocating to Paducah over 30 years ago. Now that we have moved back to central KY, my husband must stop by and bring home 5 pounds each time he has business is western KY. I especially love their sauce! We stock up and keep it in our pantry for preparing our own pork... More

Was in the Paducah area last week and HAD to stop by Knoth's for lunch on my way home. I don't get up around there much anymore, but always make it a point to stop in for some good cue and great sauce. Bought four bottles of hot sauce to bring home. We use it on lots of different meats... More

The original Mr. Knoth and my grandfather were good friends and I can honestly say this restaurant feels like going to see a good friend for us. I've been going to Knoth's since I was a little boy. It's been 4 and a half decades and counting. We do not live in the area, but you can be assured that... More
