Where the Locals Eat

Sort of a cross between a Southern restaurant and a diner. Quirky decor, great food, friendly staff. Can be a long wait since it's not a big place. Open for Sunday breakfast and lunch which is great since the only other places open are interstate chain-types. Still no alcohol, though.

This place has one of the best breaksfasts I've ever had. The mac n' cheese with ham omelette was perfectly cooked and had a wonderful flavor. The biscuit was the largest one I have ever seen. You could make a meal out of the biscuit alone! Since this was the first time there my wife and I decided to split... More

Had breakfast & then skipped lunch. We had a big crowd for breakfast - no problem putting together a couple of tables. Service was excellent - very friendly waitress. Food was enough for 2 breakfasts. I had the Wyatt Earp: 2 pancakes, 2 eggs, bacon and potato. May want to try the kitchen sink next time.

We were greeted within a minute of entering the café by the host. When I told him there would be seven of us in our group he looked surprised but didn't miss a beat! We were seated at two tables with a small space between them and our server was very attentive. They served traditional coffee with free refills, none... More

First I must say--put the Prevention magazine down. Then go enjoy some delightful hometown cooking at the Gold Rush. We are from the north, so looking to enjoy some food with some southern edges before we get home. Gold Rush was a perfect fit to fill that need. Huge portions, prices very reasonable. Loved the hometown atmosphere. Our server, Spencer... More

Visited here with my wife, daughter and three grand daughters the other day. I haven't been here in a while. I had a burger and fries that would fill any grown man. My wife ordered a local favorite, meat loaf with fried cabbage. She was especially pleased. Seeing as she is the more picky eater of the two of us... More

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.
