We had our own room in the back, the staff was pleasant enough and with dealing with as many people as they did our drinks were never empty.

If you want BBQ sauce then this may be the place but everything is smothered in sauce and you cannot taste the food. I was told this is the best BBQ and I was greatly disappointed.

The food is great and there sure is plenty of it. Deserts are outstanding so be ready to eat you'll want to. Lots of different BBQ to try.

Moonlight has, in my opinion the best barbeque in a 5 or 6 state area. Few will argue with this statement, I have found. Try it yourself. I guarantee you'll like it.

Went for the first time. OMG! Everything is good! So much to choose from. Seconds? If you sampled everything, their isn't room for seconds. And try the mutton and Burgoo - what they are famous for.

The Bosley's have been serving ribs for 50 years. We drove the 45 minutes to Owensboro, KY on a Sunday morning arriving around 11:30 AM. There was no waiting and the eight of us were seated promptly. Moonlite is a carb-lover's dream, the offerings: pork, mutton, beef, chicken, ham, turkey, and bacon. We all chose the buffet although plated meals... More
