Two Owensboro BBQ joints make list as 'Best in the South'

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

Two barbecue shops in Owensboro have been named in Southern Living Magazine's "The South's Top 50 Barbecue Joints."

Old Hickory and Moonlight Barbeque made this year's list. 

Old Hickory actually placed in the Top 10. 

Employees at both restaurants say they were surprised and honored to make the list.  

"We think it's outstanding, you know, it's just a testimony to the quality of product we put out our doors, you know, we try to keep it high and when you get ranked in the Top 10 on something like this you know it's just people confirming what we already know, how good our food is," says Old Hickory Manager Steve Christian. 

Pat Bosley's family owns Moonlight BBQ on West Parrish. 

"Anytime people put you at a top or in a category of the best, it's very humbling," says Bosley.  

Old Hickory and Moonlight are the only restaurants in Kentucky to make the list.
