    Hey folks. I'll be traveling through Paducah soon, and spending the night there with the family. Can someone recommend a family friendly, non-chain restaurant for dinner. One of those local favorites that we'd be idiots to miss out on?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Thanks Guys!

    We've driven past the "Patti's" sign for years, but never stopped. I'll check into some of the others as well.

    We went to Patti's. Enjoyed some good food, but it was getting dark and didn't get to see the place too well.

    Sorry guys, I hadn't been checking this thread lately.

    Yes, I had the pork chop. Very good! I can't remember what the family had, but it seems like it was a lot of food. I remember my wife and one daughter shared a Bill's Boatsinker pie.
