Order the hashbrown casserole

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

We were STARVING and searched Trip Advisor for a quick place we could grab some BBQ for lunch while in southern Illinois. Thought it'd be neat to drive to another state for food. Kids thought so at least. Service was friendly, beer was cold, food was quick...and luke warm. My chicken was tasty, kids ribs were ok, fall of the... More

Was wanting pulled pork bbq for lunch today so we decided to go here. I had the pulled pork plate. Big mistake.....it was the worst I have ever had. Stringy, tasteless with no smoke flavor...Sauce didn't even help. I can make better in my oven. We have eaten there 5 years ago and then it was just ok. The beans... More

We read mixed reviews of this place, and I say, good food. I would be happy to make coleslaw that good, the beans were delicious, and the ribs were fantastic. The service was wonderful, staff was all around very friendly and accommodating. It is, like so many barbeque places, very spare in decor. Oh! We had been traveling for about... More

Am not usually a big fan of B-B-Q ribs because they're often too greasy, too dry or lacking enough meat. We've enjoyed Backwoods pulled pork for several years and after sampling their ribs at Paducah's annual Barbecue On The River festival last September, we ordered a rack of ribs and some cold slaw today to take home for supper. They... More

The pulled pork had just the right amount of smoke flavor and it melted in our mouths. The sauces were spicy with full flavor. The beans were perfect. Just great BBQ.

When we are on a road trip, it is easy to get really tired of eating in anything that remotely resembles a chain restaurant. And in Paducah for some reason, the hotels are not located in the downtown area where the local restaurants are, but out towards the highway where the chain restaurants are, with the exception of Backwoods BBQ....
