Mark's Feed Store Restaurant Review: The walls of the cinder block building housing the original Mark’s Feed Store in Middletown are decorated with colorful vintage tin signs advertising livestock feed. Decades ago, that outpost was indeed a farm supply store. Located in a suburban shopping center, this Mark's Feed Store carries on the rustic, down-home theme in modern mode. Humans are the happy eaters at Mark’s today, tucking into big sandwiches of tender, smoked pork, chicken and beef. The restaurant’s just-spicy-enough mustard-based barbecue sauce nicely dresses them. (Bottles are on all the tables.) Big racks of pork ribs are pre-sauced, but not overly so. Tender, tangy potato salad and pork-seasoned green beans are recommended sides. Beware: Fried onion straws are addictive. Don’t miss Mark’s thick, savory burgoo, a Kentucky stew loaded with meats and vegetables. Soft serve ice cream and homemade buttermilk pie are sweet endings. Virtually everything on the menu is available in bulk for take-out. Service is swift and friendly. Expect to be addressed as “Hon.” Beer and wine are available, but no spirits. Other locations.
