Lived in Shelbyville some time ago. The Cow Palace was a special draw then and still is. We had the tenderloin sandwich with o-rings. Not the hand breaded behemoth it once was, but still good. Shakes are still the old fashion hand dipped kind. An...More

This place is closed!! We drove all the way out to this location hoping to have an afternoon lunch. Only find out that it’s closed. Looks like it’s close for business forever!!

Upset with the new hours. I think the owner is very snooty. Their ice cream is very good, but expensive. We thought all the food tasted the same , for example never changed the grease.

Pretty decent, but not as expected. A little pricey. Double cheeseburger was almost $9.00. It simply was not a good $15 lunch value.
