Which tiny restaurants in Kentucky are worth trying?
Here in Kentucky, we know that great things come in small packages. Many of our fascinating tiny towns have produced both incredible people and businesses, and to this day our countryside is overflowing with charm. Get lost in the wonders of small town dining at teeny tiny eateries like Rick’s Barbecue and More. Rick’s is one of the best BBQ spots in the state, and yet it’s housed in a petite little shed-like storefront. Little Town & Country Restaurant has a modest parking lot, but inside you’ll find an incredible old school atmosphere. It has remained family owned since the 1950s, and it remains welcoming to this day. If you’re traveling through our state, don’t be afraid to dine at tiny local landmarks… they just may surprise you!

Parkette Drive In offers visitors an old-school experience, complete with black and white tile floor and all-American bites like burgers and onion rings. Bard’s Burgers & Chili serves infamously massive burgers are practically local legend. If you can finish a meal consisting of eleven patties and twelve slices of cheese between a bun plus two pounds of fries in one hour, you earn free patties for life. At Jailhouse Pizza, you can dine in total comfort… if you don’t mind dining in a purportedly haunted former jail.

And, while we specialize in Southern comfort food, you can find a vast dining scene throughout the stretches of our state.

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.
