If you ever get a chance to visit the South West part of KY in the Paducah/LBL/Grand Rivers area you have to stop by Patti's 1880's Settlement Restaurant! They are known nationwide, maybe even worldwide for their pies! The restaurant has lost of home cookin' going on and the menu is really awesome. The atmosphere is very cozy and inviting as well. Patti's is located in Grand Rivers, KY not too far off I-24.
