A Favorite BBQ Joint In Kentucky Has Been Named One Of The Most Legendary In The South

As a general tenet, the more unassuming a restaurant is, the more incredible its food. This is certainly the case with Starnes Bar-B-Q. A Paducah institution, Starnes has been dishing up delicious, melt-in-your-mouth barbecue since the 1950s. This humble little BBQ joint in Kentucky was recently named one of the “most legendary” in the South, and we couldn’t agree more.
