“Good bbq and great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

The parking lot was packed on a Sat afternoon but we were seated immediately and our waitress was attentive and fast. Our son got the buffet but my husband and I opted to order off the menu. For value, the buffet is best but we didn't want to eat that much. Our chicken sandwiches were very good altho I was surprised that we had to add bbq sauce (there was none none on it). The sides we ordered (fries and onion rings) were delicious and enormous portions. Not good for anyone watching their weight, but delicious:)

“Barbeque any way you like it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

At the recommendation of some local folks we tried this long-established BBQ mecca for a late lunch. Everything was great especially the ribs and pulled pork. Service was friendly, fast and efficient. It's a big place with multiple rooms. Much of Owensboro must show up for weekend and holiday dining. A buffet is available during peak lunch and dinner hours.

“Simply Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

If you are a barbeque or a vegetable buffet fan this is your place. I ate lunch on a Thursday and this place was packed with locals. That is the best of all signs of the quality of the food and service. The mutton is great as well as the pork. The desserts are all beyond belief, I had banana pudding. If in Owensboro stop in.

“Very Good BBQ Buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

Perhaps a little pricey but this restaurant has a big selection different meats (specializing in BBQ), vegetables and desserts. Service is very good and there is a carry-out section as well.

“better be hungry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

home cooking, great bar-b-que, pork, mutton, catfish on occasion. You can purchase to take home. Lots of parking & seating, great for buses or family get togethers. or just a couple. You got kids that like to lay in the floor while everybody else is conversing at the table? No problem. got cheap wine & beer/ no liquor. Sunday brunch.
