Love me some good Kentucky BBQ!

Love me some Kentucky BBQ and Knoth's knows how it is done. Unique slaw and cold iced tea. Yum! I recommend you stop in when in the area.

I would put their pulled pork against anyone's. I've lived all over the south and have tried lots of barbecue, Knoth's beats them all! I buy a shoulder every time I visit and put it in the freezer so I can have it until we visit again. Seriously the best!

We have been eating here for years, in fact all the 50 yrs they have been in business. The food is always good and always the same. Why change something that is right?

You will have to make a stop here. We were told by a local this was the best barbeque in the area. A family owned restaurant that has been around for over 50 years. The barbeque tasted wonderful. You eat off of paper plates and everything is simple, yet delicious!
