Old Hickory Bar-B-Q Restaurant Review: Owensboro is the home of an annual barbecue festival, thanks to a very lively ’cue culture. But know that Old Hickory Bar-B-Q is the place favored by locals. The regional specialty is barbecued mutton and it is served here sliced, chopped or as mutton ribs. First-timers will be happiest with the pungent chopped mutton sandwich. The other specialty is burgoo, a thick stew of meats and vegetables originally made with any available game. (Squirrel is omitted from this recipe.) Of course, traditional barbecue meats -- pork, chicken and beef --- are on the menu, too. Sides include barbecue beans, creamy coleslaw and onion rings. The recommended dessert is blackberry cobbler. No alcohol is served.
