The food was good too! I ordered the combo plate so I could try a few different meats. Turkey: seemed like deli meat that had BBQ sauce and was grilled. Not my favorite. Pork ribs: wicked good!

The mac n cheese was box and the bbq tasted as if it was reheated numerous times rather than fresh. All the tables were dirty and there was only about... More

The best BBQ in town, hands down. Don't waste your time at overpriced Moonlite, just go straight to Old Hickory.

Our waitress was very polite and friendly. It is a very laid back place that the locals all know is the... More

I'm local to Owensboro and have been to all the BBQ places in town and by far this is the best one in town! The pit masters do an amazing job smoking the meats

We were delighted when our waitress told us kids ate free that night - saved us a good bit of money. However this place is nothing fancy at all. The ice cream machine was broken and the bathrooms were closed due... More
