“Great place and food!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

Our waitress, Laura, was great! Very personable and helpful. We ordered a spinach dip for the table-wonderful!! I ordered the pork tenderloin and it was seasoned to perfection!!! The only thing I did not like was the fried corn on the cob, but it wasn't terrible-just not the best. I highly recommend this place! Smithfield is a cute little town too-blink and you miss it:)

“Our Best - what Cracker Barrel strives to be...”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Our Best is located in the (very) small town of Smithfield, Kentucky - that's in Henry County, for the uninitiated - and occupies the site of an old flour mill. Down home, country cooking is the theme at Our Best, and they deliver! Visit their website (www.ourbestrestaurant.com) for a complete rundown on the menu. One of their signature items is the fried chicken - arguably among the best you'll have anywhere, with homemade mashed potatoes, veggies and corn cakes. Be sure to save room for dessert - home-baked cobblers and pies! Weekends can be VERY busy at Our Best, so plan ahead.

“Amazing”
Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

This is simply an amazing place to eat. I have eaten lunch here twice and would return again and again. Try their hot fried tomatoes. Awesome.

“A good road trip”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

My wife and I recently took a Sunday road trip to Our Best as it was the first sunny day in a week. We'd been before and had wanted to go again.

We were seated quickly and our waitress was attentive. My wife ordered the porkchops which came out thick and hot with a side of green beans (which she loved) and a side salad. I ordered the catfish filet which was not great, but the side of fried green tomatos (only three, a couple of more would have been nice) was good and the french fried potoatos were hot (most likely frozen).

The atmosphere of the old mill is great, very historical. Prices are reasonable. This is a great family place.
