Smokey, Tender, and Quite Good!

You can rely on Backwoods BBQ for a good ol'Kentucky-style pulled pork sandwhich! I had lunch there yesterday and the service was quick and the BBQ and beans were hot. Definitely recommend!

Smelled real smoke when I got out of the truck. Pulled pork sandwich under $4. Nice sized. Not real smokey though. Asked for the toasted bun. They toast the outside, not the sliced side so it takes on a burned flavor. Towards dry. No sauces provided. $2 for a fountain drink & $1 tip gets toward pricey for a meal... More

Ordered a large meal for 25 people. Smoked chicken and barbecue with all the fixings fantastic. Best chicken I have ever eaten. Everything was fantastic right down to the cobbler. Would definitely use again.

My hubby and I love all kinds of BBQ, he is a sauce lover, but I like mine plain and smoked well. Both of were very pleased with the food and service! We... More

Ordered ribs & chicken to take back to our room unfortunately they are so popular they didn't have much left. They gave us the last 1/2 slab of ribs & a half chicken. Our suggestion is GET THERE EARLY!

We stumbled upon this place. The food and service was good, but the hashbrown casserole was great. I would eat here again but driving in paducah ticked me off so i doubt that I will ever come back. The restaurant itself is great though!

Driving thru the area and found this place just a mile straight down the main road from our hotel. Arrived 15 minutes before closing and the staff was absolutely amazing! No rushing and no fussing. The food was perfect, our beer was the coldest, and they have real homemade pies!!!! The coconut cream pie was the best I've ever had... More
