This Iconic Kentucky Restaurant Famously Known For Epic Salad Bar & Strong Mints
There's a Kentucky restaurant that serves delicious food but it is ironically known for its soup and salad bar and some curiously strong English mints.
IN BUSINESS FOR OVER 50 YEARS
Briarpatch Restaurant has been in business for a very long time in Owensboro. It is a staple of our small community. It says a lot about a place where you can keep your doors open for half a century. The restaurant has had three sets of owners over the years but the food has stayed the very same. There is a deep-rooted history of continuing the tradition of excellence.
While they make the yummiest and most mouthwatering steaks around that isn't what has put them on the map.
WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT THIS SALAD BAR
I know you're probably thinking "what makes a salad bar so EPIC?" I'll be happy to tell you. Since I can remember I have always loved eating at The Briarpatch. As a kid, I always thought people that ate there were rich. We would pass by there and it was so pretty and I wanted to go inside so badly. Finally, when I became an adult I got to eat there and experience the greatness of the salad bar. First of all, it is two-sided so you never really have to wait to fill your plate. Secondly, the staff is meticulous meaning it is always and I mean always exceptionally clean. There is a variety of veggies, meats, and salad toppings to make the perfect salad and the best part it is ALWAYS fresh.
At the end of this heavenly salad bar awaits crackers, croutons, and cheese. Finally, they have a savory soup bar that is just as famous. You can always find Hoppin' John Soup and it's to die for.
