Bar-B-Que Shack: Hopkinsville, KY237

BONUS STOP! As I continue on day 33 I found my 73rd stop, Bar-B-Q Shack, in Hopkinsville, KY. Otherwise known as Hop Town by the locals. No website or Facebook page for this true BBQ joint. However, there was a line of truckers pulled over going in and out, so that gave me a bit of confidence that the 'cue might be pretty good.
The owners were on a trip to Alaska and the rest of the crew was busy and a bit camera shy, so not a lot of people pics here. That said, they were super nice and gave me real nice service.
I ordered up some mutton, pulled pork, ribs and sides of cole slaw, more of that burgoo stew and slice of chess pie. The highlights for me were the pulled pork with a spicy BBQ sauce, the slaw and that chess pie. I did learn that you can order mutton without fat and I'd do that next time.
The locals kept coming in as did the truckers, so the cue they're making is making a lot of people happy. Bring cash as they don't take credit cards. #chasingbbq
