We were passing through on a Friday night and decided to skip the fast food on the highway. When we arrived it wasn't crowded and it was very quiet and somber. That seemed odd for a place celebrating BBQ and Jerry Garcia. The food arrived and was delicious. The prices were affordable. Midway through our meal they turned on some music ... read more

When you have a meal at Grateful Ed’s one does not simply fulfill the body’s need for nourishment it opens a dimension into prolific awesomeness that cannot be duplicated. From the moment you enter you are met with gratitude and treated as if you are one of the family. Each item on the menu has extraordinary notes that ping off your ... read more

The food is delicious, however I placed a to go that took 45 minutes to make, when I got home and opened box, my sandwich was missing a piece of bread and my fries were also not there. Of course, i was charged as if I had my complete order. I messaged to tell them about it and that message was read and never responded to .pretty rud ... read more

I was truly grateful for the BBQ! Walked in and Austin took great care of us. The trio dinner plate had a bit of everything, all of it was to die for!

Ed is family, so I may be biased, but I was impressed with the operation. Great brisket, pulled pork and hamburgers on the picturesque courthouse square. First visit to Barbourville in 25 years. Daniel Boone would have approved!

the salads are really good! the mozzarella and corn nuggets are great too. 👍 The only problem was that they were out of onion rings, green beans, and breaded pickles the day I went, however this obviously wasn't the restaurant's fault, but rather the delivery company's. so still, 5 stars. the rest of my family loved their food too!

Grateful Ed's is a fantastic place to come and spend some time. The food is very good as the owner has won awards for his BarBQ in the past. The portions are generous and the service is great. Lots of options for the entire family. Located in downtown Barbourville on the square with lots of nearby shops.

We thoroughly enjoyed our takeout from Grateful Ed's while passing through the area. While we didn't love that masks weren't required and the staff wasn't always wearing masks, I expect this is as much related to state requirements than anything. They did bring our food out to our car and took other orders over the phone. The restroo ... read more
