Editor’s Note: The Kentucky Depot has permanently closed down since the publication of this article.

The best kind of restaurants in Kentucky are those family-owned, small-town eateries that serve home cooked food with plenty of southern charm. Luckily, these restaurants are scattered all across our great state, so whenever you want a taste of home, but don’t feel like cooking, it’s probably not a far drive to reach one of these gems.

However, we recently discovered a countryside restaurant in the tiny town of Stanford that has everything you could want in a charming, family restaurant. The Kentucky Depot may be out in the middle of nowhere for most, but it has the best doggone food you’ve tried in ages and is definitely worth a visit.

The Kentucky Depot is filled with southern hospitality, a comfortable atmosphere, and delicious homemade food. It basically has the trifecta when it comes to incredible restaurants in the Bluegrass.
