We stayed in the area for two days to visit Mammoth Cave. Unfortunately the food selection in the area is subpar. Almost all of it is fast food with few family or local restaurants. No fine dining whatsoever. But we found Turtleini's and it had...More

Never in a million years would I have thought the BEST pizza I've ever eaten would be freshly handmade and served daily in Kentucky. I had the Capone Pizza--it was perfect! My husband had the lasagna--he's still talking about how fresh and meaty it was.

My wife and I had the pizza and pasta buffet with soft drinks for just over $20. The pizza was good, the salad bar is limited but good and desert really hit the spot! Best place in town.

Not a lot of choices in Horse Cave but this place did the trick. They are open late, have good options and low prices. Right in the middle of town you can't miss it. Great sweet tea.

Clean, and delicious. The restaurant has a good score on Yelp, and deserves it. Buffet includes a salad, pizza, spaghetti, lasagna, and desserts. All is fresh, hot, and tasty.

Was worried that in a small town there would not be many choices to eat. Checked on trip advisor and found Turtlelini. Had the buffet with my family and we loved it. Great pizza pasta and loved the dessert pizza. Highly recommend this restaurant.
