Not Happy Today

I have been stopping by Harned's for hoagies, milk shakes and other great food for years and years. But today I experienced something that was such a small and stupid thing, yet was really like a pin stuck in my rear. Of all the hoagies I have bought there over the years, (not cheap, either, today... read more

Great little place. Lack a little in looks but makes up in quality. This is a very casual place. The menu is basic and the food simple. The BBQ is filled with flavor. The fries are cooked perfectly and everything is still making my mouth water a month later. Great place to grab cheap fast great eats. Very attentive staff.... More

By far the best BBQ in western ky. Their support of local sports and giving back to the community have them stand apart. Can't wait to visit again.

What a great experience. Met Rock the owner and he shared the Harned history with me. We were lucky enough to stop by on the 60th anniversary. Amazing food and top notch service. A definite must if you pass through Paducah

We've been stopping at Harned's Drive In for years, and although I like all their food, the hoagie is my go to order. And, it goes best with a vanilla shake. You can get your hoagie hot, medium or mild, choosing the amount of hot pepper you like. One thing that most impresses me about Harned's, is that a few... More

We thought, based on most reviews, this place sounded amazing, but not so. First off, the service was fast alright. They come immediately to your car and ask for your order. We asked a couple questions and got a very unenthusiastic response to them. The owner or manager didn't seem friendly AT ALL. Looked as though he hated his job.... More

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
