What a great place to bring the family!

Great food! Great atmosphere! And some of the best people you will ever meet! If you are in town it's definitely worth a visit. If you want barbecue get there early. It sells out almost every day!

A Paducah favorite for years. Really great old fashioned burgers and cheeseburgers, fries done right and creamy and rich shakes.

A quaint Mom & Pop style restaurant in a historic river town. Excellent food & prices. Extremely friendly service. Bbq was very good. Will be going back.

My father took us here for as long as I can remember. He knew the original and second owners. Today there is more variety, BBQ has been added, but the hamburgers are just as I remember them being and I get by every chance I get. I hope this restaurant continues to thrive well into the future.

This is the hometown burger and shake place with the great burgers, great shakes and super friendly service. The also cook their own Bar-B-Q on site and it is also great. In the heart of Lone Oak on highway 45.

Small, well-established local, family-owned eatery with a devoted customer base. Great burgers & shakes, etc. as expected from a popular burger-joint in the heart of Lone Oak. And they have a drive-up window.

This is one of THE BEST BBQ places around! Gary the owner is wonderful and remembers me whenever I make the westward KY trek. I always stop and bring back BBQ and the mmm delicious sauces from his place. You can't go wrong at the Dairyette!

Delicious food, no matter what you order. Famous for their burgers, but their bbq is the best in the area, bar none! Fast, friendly service! Great drive-up service! Recommend calling in if you want to pick up.

Supporting local spots is very important to me. Dairyette is the quintessential mom and pop locale. You can get a sandwich, side, and drink for $5.99. Excellent value. You can get pulled pork by the pound and it is WONDERFUL. The smoke is perfect and you don't even need sauce for it! The best item, by far, is the $1.88... More
