However, Hostess/Cashier was rude and it seemed like we were intruding on her time and space...Not friendly at all....I would definitely go back for the food, but sure hope they can train the hostess and cashier to be ... read more

I loved this place. The atmosphere is awesome and the food is great. I am picky about BBQ but Ed's was on point. Ranks as one of my top all time BBQ restaurants. We will definitely be back here again.

My partner’s tray has a Shakedown sandwich and he loves it. It’s a philly sandwich with steak, pulled pork, bacon, and garlic Texas toast smothered in queso. The service is a li ... read more

I had the brusquet and pulled pork fries. Both were absolutely amazing. The staff was friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere is great. The decoration is nothing out of the ordinary, and what you might expect from a BBQ restaurant. They only offer one sauce, which I would consider tangy, but it is indeed a tasty sauce. My only c ... read more

Excellent find in a small Kentucky town.

I had the Trio, which included ribs, brisket and pulled pork. Ribs were tasty, brisket was cut thick and lean but still juicy, and the pulled pork was above average. Sides were awesome and huge.

Great service & friendly staff. I'll definitely be going back every time I'm in tow

Stopped in for supper after being recommended by the hotel clerk and I’m glad we did. The brisket was some of the best I’ve had and the loaded potato salad and sweet tea was great.
