Owensboro restaurant to cook for hundreds on Thanksgiving

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

If you're overwhelmed cooking for your family this Thanksgiving, imagine cooking for hundreds of people.

One Owensboro restaurant is doing just that.

Some employees at Old Hickory Bar-B-Que are putting in more than 50 hours this week, cooking and preparing over 800 orders of deer, ham, and turkey.

500 of those orders came in on Monday alone.

Employees tell us they're used to the hustle and bustle and love people trying the food.

“What's nice about it...people trust us enough to cook their meals for them for their Thanksgiving,” said Cook.  “It's for them and their families. It's kind of a way for us to share what we do with the whole community.” 

Employees tell us Thanksgiving is the warm up for next month.

The restaurant sees twice as much business around Christmas.
