We stayed overnight at the Hampton Inn in Horse Cave during a trip to the Mammoth Caves and unfortunately there weren't too many options to eat around here. We came across the good reviews of this place and decided to try. From the outside it might look like a hole in the wall joint but we were pleasantly surprised with... More

I got into town from Huntsville, AL and wanted to check out the lunch buffet. I got to Turtlelini's after 1 PM and was afraid I'd missed the buffet. As the lady behind the counter put it though: "as long as people keep eating from the buffet, we'll keep putting it out". I ate a representative sample from the salad,... More

The last time my husband and I went for the lunch buffet, there was almost no pizza! The waitress said they had just had a huge rush and were working to bring out more pizza as fast as possible. She asked what kind of pizza we would like to have, and said she'd let us know when it was out.... More

Went here for lunch after a cave tour. Pleasantly surprised. Good pizza. Son had spaghetti and meat sauce. It was good too. We got a family order of breadsticks (they are flat!) and they were delicious and the order was huge! Lunch was under $30 including a large pepperoni pizza, sticks, spaghetti, and 4 sodas. If we are this way... More

Stopped here for lunch after we visited Kentucky Down Under. The food was very good, and service was quite fast during the lunch hour. We had pizza and calzones - they also had a pizza and salad buffet that looked very good.

After one of the most extense cave hikes of our lives we traveled back to Mammoth Cave NP and heard of this wonderful pizza joint in Horse Cave. After watching a baseball game we headed to Turtlelini's and discovered two things. 1. The salad bar is phenomenal, clean and had really fresh ingredients. 2. They have Ski soda which is... More

Put this place in any large city and it will be below average. Leave your snooty pants in the car and just bring a hungry belly. Perfectly fine food and many types available. All came out on time and HOT. Wife and I got the salad bar also, and although small, it was fresh, stocked and hit the spot. Kids... More

This local eatery has delicious pizza---a light, thinner, crust with good sauce and lots of cheese. Good item choices, along with a salad bar. The Sunday buffet has food like meatloaf and lasagna, as well as pizza, salad, and a pizza crust-based cinnamon dessert which is fantastic. Shake on hot peppers and herb seasonings. Drinks are self dispensed Coke products,... More

While I personally am not a big fan of thin crust pizza, the sauce and cheese toppings make this one worth stopping for. Good job guys!

Met up with my extended family while traveling in Kentucky...four generations worth! Not expecting much in the way of pizza, being from the Chicagoland area. I needn't have been such a pizza-snob. Excellent crust, great sauce and plenty of delicious cheese. Even picky dad/grandpa/great grandpa seemed to like it. Friendly owner and staff and great pizza. What more could you... More
