11 Mom & Pop Restaurants In Kentucky That Serve Home Cooked Meals To Die For

When going out for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, we all want the best food and service for our money. Sadly, this seemingly simple need is not always met at the higher end establishments. In most cases, you are a number at a table and the servers function much like robots, responding as if from a script to questions. If you want down home service, you have to go to a down home kinda place, like little diners we mentioned previously. We still find the mom and pop diners in Kentucky serve up home cooked meals with a smile.

There is just something about eating at a mom and pop diner in Kentucky that makes the meal taste better. Perhaps it’s the friendly service, making you feel right at home, or maybe it is the love they put into preparing each meal… Whatever the reason, the home cooked meals at these 11 mom and pop diners are absolutely mouthwatering:

The mom and pop diners in Kentucky are most certainly some of my favorites to dine at, and I look forward to our next trip out.

I am somewhat a cliche'. I grew up running around barefoot on a farm in Kentucky. I love writing, art, sunshine, all animals and my incredibly patient husband, who tolerates my "crazy animal lady" side.
