I miss Waffle House! - John Gore

Let's have some fun and reminisce. Most of these restaurants were open before I moved here, but friends and family talk about them all the time. Some of the restaurants we've listed were regional, and some were local, but all served up great food that we miss. Even though Owensboro has every food experience imaginable, it doesn't mean there's no room for more. Let's take a look back at some of the most iconic restaurants that have long since closed. Maybe someone will see this and come back soon!

Kenny Roger’s Roasters, 8 Ball, Barney’s, George's BBQ, Waffle House, Mazzio's, Trotters, and The Royce all got mentions but they didn't make the cut. Love was also shown to the King's Table, Johnny B's, Blandford's, Maloney's Roca Bar, Mazzio's, Burger Chef, Barney’s, Sambo’s, and Ryan’s but not enough to make the list. Do you agree or disagree with those choices?
