This is some of the best BBQ you will experience anywhere. The sauce is very tasty and side are equally as good. Staff is as friendly and attentive as the come. Great place for BBQ

Best bar-b-que in Western Kentucky! Love, love, love their sauce! Even dip my french fries in it! "No beans, no potato salad" but delicious fries and slaw! Yummy ice cream, and the best butterscotch milk shakes anywhere!

Everything I had was great and fairly priced but just wish they had a few more side options. Pork hits the spot as a local unique bbq joint.

We grabbed some barbecue to go on a Saturday evening to eat in our nearby cottage at Lighthouse Landing. The meat was prepared well, but the mustard-based sauce wasn't my favorite. And since I'm not a mustard fan anyway, I opted to not get the slaw. The only other side option is fries, and they were so bland they were... More

I read several reviews of Knoth's before we stopped and not a single one mentioned the fact that their sauce is mustard based. We also read an online menu that did not mention that fact. The cole slaw dressing was also heavy with mustard - we could not eat it. The outer crusty edges of the pulled pork were very... More

I grew up with Knoth's and we still try to make a trip back at least once a year just to eat here. I've never been disappointed and it's always worth the drive.

Knoth's Bar B Q has been around a long time. The original building burned many years ago and it was moved to the old Diamond Restaurant building. The atmosphere is very casual - they have booths, tables with padded chairs, and even a bar with stools. They offer a limited menu, but the food is good. They have the usual... More

On recommendation from a friend, we had late lunch here yesterday. We were not disappointed! The meat was very flavorful and the sauce is amazing!! My first time having mustard slaw and I'm a fan! This place is top on our list of places to eat every time we are in the area. The other BBQ place in town was... More

Difficult in finding a place open before 4:00PM we decided to try Knoth's, it was open but........ All they severed was Beef or Pork either by sandwich or plate lunch. NO ribs! There were only 2 sides, fries and a yellow cole slaw that I did not care for. I had the pork plate as did my wife. The pork... More

We had heard that this was the place to go and have BBQ if you are in Kentucky. We ordered the BBQ sandwich, order of French fries and cold slaw. The BBQ was really good. I was not to crazy about the cold slaw my husband did like it. The cold slaw is a bit different it has a mustard... More
