My wife and I have driven past this place for almost 30 years and have always said we should try it sometime. We don't live near Owensboro and just passed through on our way to/from our family. We found ourselves in Owensboro yesterday with some free time so we finally tried Colbys.
Now I wish we had tried it long ago because we thought it was great. I got porkchops and the wife got a salad. Her salad was good but after she tried my porkchop she agreed that it was probably the beat we've had.
Service was great and so was our wait after ordering.
Also loved the atmosphere in the old downtown store. we would highly recommend eating at Colbys.
