Made a stop-over at Knoth's last weekend when I was passing through to attend a nearby event. Knoth's is a tradition in our family/extended family. I purchase their sauce by the gallon and keep it in my spare refrigerator and buy their pork whenever we are in the vicinity of Grand Rivers. The meats and sauce are always the same... More

As a local, I've admired they're quality and service for years. Hugh Edward is the man in charge and has worked consistently and endlessly to build a great reputation for his business. You don't find businessmen like him anymore. Take advantage of this "hole in the wall" restaurant whenever you can!

Their advertisement is no beans, no potato salad, they serve a childs , small or large plate of pulled pork or beef ( which is brisket) with fries, slaw and bread, hot or mild sauce on table. They also have hamburgers or hot dogs. They close at 7 PM for now but will extend hours in May.
