Stop and Go For World Famous BBQ in Richmond KY
New restaurant and catering location at 101 Hi Lane Drive in Richmond KY with Russell Cantrell as General Manager!
Former diner location on Water Street...
When you live in the South, you grow up eating BBQ.
You learn pretty quick that people have their favorite recipes passed down through the family or invent new ones that are fabulous.
Summer weekends at festivals have backyard chefs competing for trophies and bragging rights of whose sauce reigns supreme!
Growing up in Madison County, Kentucky, I can remember my parents taking me to some wonderful BBQ joints in the area and Mom has a great recipe that I still use.
Over time I have traveled around and out of state to be able to taste some wonderful Bar-B-Q. Maybe, I have become a fan of BBQ after lifetime of tasting all the varieties. Wet, dry, hot, mild, spicy, exotic, but mainly the top-secret Southern BBQ sauce.
There's something down home about Bar-B-Q. It's comforting and filling. No wonder there are so many people that absolutely love it and have cook offs to prove how good the recipe might be.
The other day, I finally made it to the Stop and Go. I had heard for years that the Bar-B-Q of Russell Cantrell was legendary.
Stop and Go are winners of the 2009 Minority Business of the Year from The Chamber of Commerce.
As I settled in to do a taste test, I noticed how busy the place was. There were three patrons at the counter but lots of folks would stop to pick up food...then go!
My tasty review included BBQ beef brisket, pulled pork, ribs, chicken wings, cole slaw, potato salad and baked beans.
Russell uses his secret recipe on the ribs, pulled pork and brisket. It was my first time to eat beef brisket and he knew I was going to love it!
The pulled pork, brisket and ribs had just the right amount of sauce and flavor after marinating overnight and smoked up to 10 hours over hickory, apple and pecan wood before grilling. It was clearly some of the best BBQ I have ever tasted.
The cole slaw was creamy and had just the right ingredients. The menu also includes a fish sandwich and he does the special breading.
Christine's potato salad was heavenly and just the perfect blend.
There's something for everyone on the menu even hamburgers.
It's plain to see that the Stop and Go is a well maintained restaurant that has all the perfect ingredients of great BBQ, happy atmosphere and a down home charm. They do catering too!
