Sad news: Lynn's Paradise Cafe in Louisville has closed down. Apparently some ugly accusations from employees about management abuse. One of my favorite places to dine.
But...in Owensboro, I can recommend several places. For BBQ, Old Hickory BBQ is much better than Moonlight if you're looking for real pit barbecue. Moonlight has a huge buffet with lots of extras if that's what you're looking for. Lunch: Downtown on Second Street-Definitely The Bistro Fabulous Sandwiches as well as dinner entrees. Great lunch in soups, salads and sandwiches is Great Harvest Bread on Frederica. Another good restaurant located on Highway 54 is Old South Barbecue. New management has improved the food and service.
