This Restaurant Way Out In The Kentucky Countryside Has The Best Doggone Food You’ve Tried In Ages
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.
