A visit to the Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn is a must for our family when we are in Owensboro! The Moonlight is listed in Southern Living Magazine's 2003 Ultimate Bar-B-Que Guide and Gourmet Magazine's Guide to America's Best Roadfood. The Moonlight is famous for their buffet. We were there Sunday at lunch. The buffet featured: turkey and dressing, fried chicken, country ham, and BBQ chicken, ribs, sliced pork, chopped pork, sliced beef and mutton. The buffet also includes a large selection of vegetables, breads, salads, soups including KY Burgoo and a large dessert bar. A sign at the buffet says "Not Responsible for Your Overeating."
I purchased the Family Favorites From Moonlite® recipe book. In addition to their favorite recipes, the book tells the story of how the Bosley family started with a 30 seat diner and built the business into the famous 350 seat restaurant, national catering facility and online business it has become today.
By the way, two of my favorites, in addition to the Bar-B-Q, are their cornbread muffins and the buttermilk pie. Both recipes are in the book. Yipee!
