Not a lot of places in Russellville but this is a gem. I got the sampler plate but the ribs were the best. Great variety of sides to choose from.

The food at Roy's is very good regardless if you stop in there for either dinner or supper. Recently Roy's increased prices in their meals is the only negative factor however the food here is all very good. For pulled pork BBQ or the fried or BBQed Chicken no place in this area matches their quality. Although the catfish here... More

I love their Bar B Q, Cole slaw and their Catfish! It's a great place to take your family for dinner. It is located in Russellville, Ky.

Love the food - especially the catfish! Nothing fancy and doesn't need to be. A staple whenever I visit.

Authentic and excellent as Bar-B-Q can be. Our ribs and pulled pork were excellent. The waitress was a joy...very homey, chatty and fun to be around. We had a great time in a small, mostly takeout, restaurant during a relatively quiet time. Truly a memorable experience.

They serve a full menu with a plate lunch special with various meat choices each day with numerous sides to choose from. They serve shredded barbcue/add your own hot or mild sauce on bun or cornbread. They also offer fish and chef or chicken salads. Their home-made pies are to die for, including chocolate, coconut, lemon icebox, peanut butter, chess... More

If you're hungry for some good fresh "country style HOME Cookin," meats, veggies & baked goods, ROY'S is my preference. Their Bar-B-Q is as good as it comes, & we get carry out orders for big family & social events. "DEPENDABLE" !!! "WoW" is my feelings of their homemade pies!
