This is your small, hometown BBQ place. The atmosphere is very plain and basic and I'm ok with that as I just want good food! The menu is pretty small, no salad available. You can get BBQ pork or beef with 2 sides: french fries...More

The BBQ was tender and smokey. I enjoyed it very much. I am not a "sauce" eater so I did not try it, but was told that it was sweet (although the hot sauce was real hot).

Knoths bar-b-que is a must visit when in the area. We have eaten with the Knoth family for 40+ years. Make this your family tradition. You will not be disappointed.

We bought a certificate for this restaurant thru Baggett Theater. We did not care for the mustard slaw. Wish they would have had options for other kinds of slaw. Everything else was delicious. Oran, MO

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.
