I stopped by here recently for a quick lunch after reading the reviews, They are a BBQ and meat and 3 type home cooking restaurant. I had a mutton (smoked lamb) sandwich and a cup of burgoo which is a bbq type tomate based soup with potatoes and a little corn. Both of these menu items are hard to find... More

Great burgoo and BBQ! The plate lunches are delicious. Gotta have some desert too! Coconut , chocolate, chess, pecan, carmel pie and some fine banana pudding! Yum! All made there.

Any time we're traveling near Hopkinsville, we'll go out of the way to eat at The Woodshed. There are plenty of great barbecue places in western Kentucky, and The Woodshed is at the top of the woodpile. The barbecue is nicely smoked and is served with sauce on the side, so you can taste it the way it should be... More

We found this BBQ restaurant via a google search while traveling on the Interstate. It's a bit off the Interstate, but WELL WORTH IT!!!! There were 4 of us each having something different. I had the BBQ mutton sandwich. It had great flavor, generous portion. The chocolate cress pie was outstanding. The service was fabulous. A little down-home place. Don't... More

Came to Hopkinsville at supper time and I was craving barbeque. We passed this restaurant as we were leaving town. This was a very good decision. The barbeque was smoked and the platter I had was overflowing with the meat and there were three sides. Boiled cabbage, cole slaw and French fries The cabbage was tasty and the fries were... More

We are new to the area and wanted to dine at a local place. The Woodshed was one of the recommendations we have received. We decided to stop in for a late lunch one Saturday. There was a decent crowd for that time of day. We found an open table and worked our way through the menu. Since this is... More

The food is way above average for a little town. The serving size is good, always snappy and fast. It has great variety and selections. The prices are more than fair and desserts are nostalgic. Clean, smiling wait staff, good country crowd. Why 3 stars? Does the money-man have to stare, wonder who you are and never smile? No, l... More

Wood Shed has great BBQ and plate lunches during the week and other daily specials. On Saturday evenings they have the best prime rib anywhere served with all the fixings. Babyback ribs are another one of the Saturday evening specials and are also the best around.

On Wednesday and Friday evening you may try the catfish! It doesn't have that "pellet raised" taste! Any time you go you have to be ready to wait a few minutes ... or just pick a table and sit with some folks to make friends. This is "old fashioned" dining and good food. The wait staff is amazingly efficient, too.... More
