With family now living in the Owensboro KY area, this past November we had our first opportunity to dine at the Old Hickory Bar-B-Que when visiting. So very glad that we did! Outstanding experience. Nicely appointed interior, very welcoming, a blazing fire in the hearth/fireplace to add to the comfortable, homey atmosphere. BBQ and other fare at their finest, including all the local delicacies. A wide variety of tasty selections for all aspects of a full meal are available. The mutton, both sliced and chopped, is beyond compare, and available in both styles on a sampler platter. BBQ beans, greens, yams/sweet potatoes, and cornbread are all top notch. The burgoo is superb, the best tasting burgoo that I have yet enjoyed – – no matter the ingredients of the day! The waitress was considerate enough to assure me, a Yankee, that there was no road kill in its composition! Old Hickory immediately became a favorite, and will most assuredly be returned to on future visits to the area.

Old Hickory turns 100 this year in 2018. So I went there to eat for my 62nd. birthday with my husband. The Saint Louis style ribs were awesome!! This was a very good meal for an old (now retired lady). They don’t offer you any birthday dessert, but I would of had to take it home, if they had. This was a very good meal. Thank’s Old Hickory and Happy 100th, birthday to you

I usually get the mutton rib plate-love this. I also at times get the chopped mutton sandwich or bar-b-que chicken-delicious. Like all of the sides. In the winter like their bean soup with cornbread. I see why they got best bar-b-que rest in Kentucky on Goggle. Good job.

I lived in Owensboro most of my life until we moved to North Carolina in 1989. And NC has no idea what real barbecue is!! I go to Old Hickory every time I am back in Owensboro. It is the best! I spent many years going to the old one on Washington as I lived at 25th and Frederica. I sure so miss the best barbecue in the world!!

Where do I begin to tell you how wonderful the food and people are here? Grew up eating Old Hickory & during my 10 year stay in Chicago, I always took back burgoo, which would get froze, & held onto like gold for days when you needed a piece of home. Recently, Old Hickory catered our wedding & I couldn’t imagine choosing anyone else. Everyone loved the food & the staff here were the easiest vendor to work with for the wedding! I was able to count on them entirely & knew everyone was going to love the food. Please consider them the next time you have catering needs or looking for a good place to eat.

Yummy- I always come here over any other place in Owensboro. And I am not a BBQ kind of gal, but I love bbq mutton. And Evansville has no place with mutton. The were not packed tonight which made the service super fast. Food was out in under 5 mins. We will be back next time we are in town!

Old Hickory turns 100 this year. It is the definition of Kentucky BBQ. It smells just as good as it tastes. Pork Ribs, Mutton, Burgoo, Baked Beans, and Cobblers a la mode are a must. Take a jar of sauce home for your kitchen.
