Your typical diner food. Good service. A good place to go for lunch if you want it quick. Mostly fried items, plate lunches offered. Not made from scratch cooking.

This is on Broadway in downtown Paducah. They serve breakfast items all day. Everything I have tried has been great. The scotch eggs are sure to be a pleaser. The staff is very friendly.

Everything in this restaurant is made from scratch and it is outstanding. I had pancakes infused with fresh blueberries and pecans. The pancakes were cooked just right - crispy on the edges and light and fluffy on the inside. My coffee cup was always refilled without asking by the superb waitress.

Saw reviews on this restaurant and mapped it. It was good but nothing special the service was awesome. Food was okay, it was clean, older. It was way off the hwy and not worth the drive. Prices were fine but food was just okay.

I've only eaten lunch there a time or two and it was equally good. However, since it's more of a home cooked meal and not far from work I've eaten breakfast several times. They make a good hearty breakfast with more than enough food and absolutely delicious! Locally owned, friendly staff!

What a treat to go downtown Paducah and eat at Gold Rush. Location is wonderful if you're spending the afternoon shopping on Broadway. Great specials, especially the stuffed cabbage. Try the burgers. They were outstanding.

I really enjoyed the gold rush omlete and the home fries. My husband had the chicken tenders which I tried and were also really good. You can get breakfast all day and their prices are decent. I got a huge glass of oj for $2.25.

We were greeted warmly, as though we were regulars. Our drinks came quickly and the ice tea was delicious. I ordered the BLFGT (bacon lettuce fried green tomatoes) sandwich with great anticipation. I love fried green tomatoes! My husband ordered the daily special - a pork chop sandwich. I was disappointed in the FGT. They seemed like they had come... More
