I had the pork sandwich plate (includes a pulled pork sandwich on a nice soft bun, homemade coleslaw, and french fries. They have their own smokehouse where they smoke all their pork and beef for their menu. There are two different sauces on the table that are made fresh every day (this is per our waitress). One sauce is mild,... More

Had lunch with friends here today - one of their favorite places. It had been more than 10 years since we have eaten here and nothing has changed. BBQ pork was very good - very tender. Could not believe how quick our order for 6 people came out. Very nice lunch.

The pork was absolutely the most tender I have ever tasted. The mild sauce was okay and didn't really enhance the flavor. So I tried some hot sauce on the side... More

The BBQ was tender and smokey. I enjoyed it very much. I am not a "sauce" eater so I did not try it, but was told that it was sweet (although the hot sauce was real hot).

Knoths bar-b-que is a must visit when in the area. We have eaten with the Knoth family for 40+ years. Make this your family tradition. You will not be disappointed.

We bought a certificate for this restaurant thru Baggett Theater. We did not care for the mustard slaw. Wish they would have had options for other kinds of slaw. Everything else was delicious. Oran, MO

This is some of the best BBQ you will experience anywhere. The sauce is very tasty and side are equally as good. Staff is as friendly and attentive as the come. Great place for BBQ

Best bar-b-que in Western Kentucky! Love, love, love their sauce! Even dip my french fries in it! "No beans, no potato salad" but delicious fries and slaw! Yummy ice cream, and the best butterscotch milk shakes anywhere!

Everything I had was great and fairly priced but just wish they had a few more side options. Pork hits the spot as a local unique bbq joint.
