Dining in Owensboro -- Perfect for Every Occasion


If you think you have to leave Owensboro to get a great meal, think again. As soon as you move into your new apartment, you'll be mere minutes from great food.

Here's what you need to know if you want to dine like a local:

- They don't call it the "BBQ Capital of the World" for nothing

You'll find barbecue restaurants of every size and style here. The locals love the mutton at Old Hickory Bar-B-Q, while the pork and beef are favorites at Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn. At Ole South Barbecue, they're not just popular because of their barbecue -- the locals love the breakfast menu, too!

True barbecue fans will look forward to May all year long because that's when Owensboro hosts the International BBQ festival. If you think you can take the pressure, sign up for the Backyard Cookoff, and see if your beef, chicken, or pork makes the grade! Or, if you'd rather eat instead of cook, sign up for a Mutton Glutton VIP pass. With it, you'll be able to eat and drink as much as you want, in the cool air-conditioned comfort of RiverPark Center.

- There's plenty of fancier food here, too

If you're celebrating something special -- and you don't want to roll up your sleeves and feast on barbecue -- there are some more upscale restaurants to choose from. The Miller House is home to great steak and a popular Sunday brunch. There's also a bourbon bar that has more than 100 different choices! The locals also love the steaks at Briarpatch.

If gourmet seafood is more your style, you'll enjoy Lure Seafood and Grille. The locals love the Lobster Bisque, and there's a craft cocktail menu that's just as tasty as it is creative.

- There's no shortage of pizza

Owensboro is home to countless pizza joints, so whether you want a quick slice, pizza that's been cooked in a special stone-deck oven, or unique toppings like Vidalia onions, potatoes, and pickles. And, in true Owensboro fashion, you can even get pizza with barbecue on top!

- There are tons of locally-owned restaurants

Yes, you'll see many of the big chain names that you're used to, but eating in Owensville is unique because there are so many locally-owned places to eat. Whether you want gourmet burgers, fresh catfish, traditional diner favorites, or unique breakfast dishes, you'll find members of the community who are selling it!
