Stopped for lunch on a motorcycle trip and really enjoyed it. Simple, plain, but very good and the staff was very nice! Had the brisket and it was flavorful and juicy. Enjoyed each bite! Don't hesitate to stop here.

Stopped here while visiting LBL. Service is fast and friendly. Food was brought to us super fast after ordering. Pulled pork is very good. Cole slaw is good also. Inside is very dated, but is clean.

If I was closer than three hours (in Lexington) I would dine at Knoth's at least weekly. Excelllent pulled pork and fine sauces to accompany. If you get close to the lakes, by all mean, stop and eat!
