Best pork I have ever had

First, you need to order ahead. This place is always packed and it took almost a half hour to get my take out order without calling ahead. That being said, the food is wonderful. We had the pulled pork dinners Bd they we're delicious ! Melt in your mouth and a plus for having fried green tomatoes !!

Stopped by Pop's Barbecue on the way home from Cave Run Lake today. I remember the last time I ate there thinking, "boy, those are some outrageous prices for that little amount of food." Well...I fell for it again because I was hungry and no other restaurants around. True to form, the food was OK but the price was astronomical... More

There isn't much of a selection in the area surrounding the beautiful hills and hollers of Morgan County. So - Sunday evening after spending the days wandering through the hills we headed over to the only place to go - Pop's. Just too tired to go any further. I ordered the ribs, salad, and baked potato. The prices were just... More

Call ahead if u want something specific. We showed up at opening on Sunday and they didn't have bbq ribs or coleslaw. Very disappointed. No point in getting there early. Don't care how good the substitute food was. U should have bbq at your bbq restaurant.

Honestly, this restaurant has a monopoly going. There really is not a another place to eat for miles around. We got lucky and in passing this place a second time while going through the Daniel Boone National forest we stopped for dinner The ribs fell off the bone and that happens with any me if you cook it long enough....

Based on other reviews, we looked forward to eating here on a late Sunday afternoon around 5:30 PM and were told they were out of pulled pork. Now, how can a BBQ joint run out of one of the most popular items before the dinner hour? Sure, demand could have been high that weekend, but come on, put more in... More

Good alternative to the usual fast food fare and just a few miles south of I64. Based on other reviews decided to give this place a shot. Early Friday afternoon so it wasn't too busy. Plenty of parking for the RV. We were seated and orders were promptly taken. I had the pulled pork BBQ sandwich with shoestring fries. DH... More

Overall food quality and portion size is very good. The last 3 times I went they were out of most items. This seems to be a common occurrence at the end of a weekend or on Monday. Barbecue sandwiches, brisket, and steak are good quality. Vegetables and sides could be improved.

My husband was on a business trip with two other guys. They wanted me to find a place for them to eat that was local to the area. This is what I chose and it was a BIG hit. They said the food was amazing and very reasonable. Would love to try it myself.
