Ole Hickory Pit Restaurant Review: Located near the sprawling General Electric Appliance Park, Ole Hickory Pit is easy to find. Even if you don’t catch a whiff of wood smoke, you won’t miss the elephant-size pig on the restaurant’s roof. Barbecued meats range far beyond pork, though. In addition to chicken and beef, they include ham, turkey and, almost unheard of outside of Western Kentucky, mutton. Almost gamy, certainly tangy, it is well worth seeking out. Accompany a mutton sandwich with white beans seasoned with ham and fried corn on the cob. Crispy little fried corn cakes make yet another good reason to come here, as do the freshly made desserts. They include cherry cobbler, banana pudding and a variety of cakes (flavors change daily). Soft drinks and bottled beers are available.
