Cash only here!!!! BBQ is wonderful. It is so flavorful that you don't need sauce. Small and large sandwiches available, with all of the typical sides you'd expect at a BBQ place. The only downer is the size of the drinks. Servers will come to your car and take your order. NOTE that it is a cash only place and... More

I was in town on business and craving BBQ. I read the reviews on this website and decided to try it out. I had a BBQ sandwich and hot dog. The BBQ had great flavor but was dry. Even with the slaw and sauce added, it was still too dry. The hot dog lacked greatly. It was split and placed... More

Great Ky barbecue....I have been gong here for almost 50 years and I always get the hot dogs as well as BBQ. I have never had hotdogs served this way.....sliced and grilled on toast. A little chili and its heaven. I hit it every-time I'm in Paducah. BBQ is great, too.

Harneds Drive Inn is one of my favorite stops for Kentucky pit BBQ. Car hops take your order (or there is limited indoor seating) and your food arrives promptly. My personal favorite is the large BBQ In toast with onion and mild sauce. They sandwiches are lightly sauced, so order extra is you want more. Sides include the usual, and... More

Get you a pork shoulder or ham B-B-Q sandwich on toasted bread - you will love it - You can be served in you car or go inside - Inside your cloths will collect some Hickory (I think) wood odor but it will be worth it. When we went they met us at the car and said they were out... More

Born and raised in Paducah but lived in Murray for many years. I still manage to eat at Harned's every couple of weeks. Same great food and service by essentially the same family ( Mom and Dad original owners have passed ). The boys are carrying on with the same standards their parents had. Fastest car hop service I have... More

I went to Harned's after reading reviews here. I'm staying here, in Paducah, on a temporary work assignment. As my family isn't here with me, I was getting tired of salads at the apartment and your typical fast food drive throughs. Food was delivered in a short time and was piping hot. Portions are good sized and the meat tender.... More
