We wanted to try a BBQ place while in Paducah and found this place. So glad we did! We tried the ribs which were excellent and the pulled pork-good and a very generous portion. We will go back.

Classic southern dry rub bbq with vinegar based sauces, small restaurant. We had the ribs, Pulled pork, and chicken, all excellent. Get the cobbler or pie and ice cream for dessert. Lots of good food, low price.

I first found this place in a AAA trip book 9 years ago, and when my travels took me through Paducah this time, I had to go back. The place hadn't changed, and that is a good thing. The food was as good now as...More

We were really looking forward to some excellent BBQ at Backwoods BBQ. We were disappointed at lunch time. May be better for evening meal. I had puled pork. It looked and tasted more like turkey. Sauce was OK. Only one type of sauce available. No...More
