“Delicious Pit BBQ!!! Cash only.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

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 ice cream treats are available for dessert.

Be careful, as the drive in is located just off a busy divided highway!

“B-B-Q - Really - Really Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

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 of ham (Folks had bought it all for Fathers day) but we were there for the pork shoulder. They warned us to be careful with the hot sauce (It's hot) but I used more than my quota - Good Stuff

“Been eating here for 35 years”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

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 ever seen. When you pull into the lot the car hops step out the door to see where you will park and about as soon as you get it put in park, one of them will be at your door ! never had a bad meal in all these years and have pretty much sampled everything on their menu at one time or another. Chili Dogs and Hoagie's are my favorites but whatever you chose you will not be disappointed.
