We always get pork bbq to go when we stay at Kentucky Lake, spring and fall. (They are closed during winter months.) We also visit their neighbors, the Browse About, which has a huge selection of concrete lawn decor.

Some of, if not the best barbecue pork I have every had. The prices are great. The decor looks like it was installed in 1948 and hasn't been replaced. The service was very personable and efficient.

Meat was just so so and sauce was too spicy. Would not go back again. The best thing about the restaurant was it is next door to the candy shop!
