This place is very small and very busy in the summertime! If you can sit outside, you are golden! The bbq is ok... The fried food is... Fried. However, the food is cheap and you get a lot! They also serve ice cream! We stop here a lot after a day on the lake.

I would not dine-in here. It's like 100 degress inside this place and the decor is horrible. I know is a country barbecue place but they should seriously watch an episode of restaurant impossible to see what NOT to so at a restaurant. Service is hit and miss. I've been there and waited an hour before. That's why I just... More

There is a lot of barbecue to sample in this country, but I'd make a special trip to have this smoked brisket again. The sauce is good but I could not bear to cover the taste of the meat with it. Sides? The Kentucky Wonder green beans are like they are right out of a garden. And have the plain... More

We were driving through Kentucky on a road trip when we happened upon this barbecue joint. We passed by on the way to Daniel Boone National Forest to stretch our legs. The smoke coming out was certainly a signal that we had to stop by on our way back out to interstate 64. After a 7 mile hike, we came... More

Great food; sometimes the service is a bit slow depending on how many people are working and the crowd. And sometimes they don't have menu items but they do a great job telling you upfront. Food is really good and the atmosphere is fantastic.

We drove by this place on our way to our cabin rental, then went back for dinner. My husband and I both had ribswith 2 sides, my daughter had the BBQ sandwich and fries. Service was quick, and everything was delicious. We ate inside, but there are outside tables as well. Very quirky taxidermy decor inside, which made for funny... More

Stopped by after day at Cave Run Lake. Pulled pork sandwiches are good sized. Turkey dry. The smoked meat has an unusual flavor, slight bitterness, slight ? chemical flavor. Kids didn't eat. The dogs loved them.

After a fun and hot family and friends day to Cave Run Lake, we were all starving!!! We decided to stop at this tiny place called Pop's BBQ for dinner, it was always packed, so we planned to stop in a little early and check it out! So glad we did!
