Bread Pudding Waffle!

The bread pudding waffle with apple butter was possibly the most delicious waffle I've ever had! My husband had the "Nashville Hot" chicken and waffle, which was pretty hot indeed! Service was fine, if not overly friendly, but we didn't wait long for table or food.

Stopped in for breakfast with three coworkers on a business trip. I hadn't eaten at the Gold Rush in years and didn't remember it as anything but an ordinary down-town cafe. What a delightful surprise! While I thought their normal two-egg and three-egg breakfast fare to be a little overpriced, for very little more the menu featured a fantastic assortment... More

Great food and service. Nothing fancy but clean. Staff were super friendly. They are known for their steaks and tamales. We had both and they were delicious. Reasonably priced too.

We always look for out of the way places, or local specialty restaurants of a 'mom and pop' variety when traveling. This place is a gem. Large portion sizes, good variety of choices and the food was delicious. Our waitress and the chef were very accommodating for some dietary needs. Our waitress was most personable and hospitable. It was a... More

This is probably my favorite restaurant in Paducah. We usually eat here at least 2 times every week. The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable. Ken the owner always comes out to see how the food is and wants to know if something is not right.

Paducah needs more down home, family restaurants like the Gold Rush. Nothing fancy here but it's clean, the food is excellent and the staff is friendly & accommodating. I don't get downtown often in the mornings but when timing allows, I make a point of stopping in here for a great breakfast. Have had an occasional lunch here too and... More

Found this restaurant while visiting the area on Trip Advisor. Decided to try it out and it was excellent. Not a real posh place but the food made up for it. We had stopped for lunch and returned the next morning for breakfast.......some excellent choices - we had the mac and cheese omelet and shared a BLFGT sandwich (bacon, lettuce,... More
