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.
It's a very nice restaurant and the food is really good. The menu has a good variety to choose from.
Best mutton, pork, potato salad and Burgoo around!

Love love love Old Hickory BBQ ! The portions are large, but more importantly are delicious . I had the 3 meat plate pork, pork & ham ( I should have called it the 3 little pigs plate). 2 generous slices of pork , thinly sliced ham with sides of seasoned BBQ beans ( spicy) & potato salad.
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
