One of our favorite parts of visiting an area that we’ve never been to before is the local food.
I’m sharing 5 restaurants in the area near Bowling Green, Kentucky that each has their own distinct charm and great food.
1. Boyce General Store
10551 Woodburn Allen Springs Road, Alvaton, KY (Located less than 20 minutes from Bowling Green)
Stop in for nostalgia and a delicious mini pie at a General Store that dates back to the 1860s.
Keep current on upcoming events and delicious menu items from their Facebook page.
Make sure that you try the mini pies!
If you are debating on which mini pie to try, I suggest trying splitting two mini pies with a friend to get the best of both worlds.
2. Chaney’s Dairy Barn
9191 Nashville Rd, Bowling Green, KY
You can meet the cow’s responsible for your delicious homemade ice cream made on the premises.
Kids will enjoy the large playground area to burn off lots of energy.
Adults might even want to try out the slide too.
There is also a restaurant, gift shop, and farm tours available from April -October.
3. Lost River Pizza Company
2440 Nashville Road, Bowling Green, KY 42101
Located near the popular tourist attraction Lost River Cave, the award-winning pizza here is incredible!
I highly recommend for you to try the bread twists and the Award-Winning Wild Boar Pizza.
Made with the two topping version Wild Boar, with O’Daniel Farms’ Country Sausage and their “in-house” Pickled Banana Peppers.
Another great option is the regular Wild Boar. Made with Country Sausage, Italian Sausage, Bacon, Smoked Ham, Caramelized Onions, and Banana Peppers.
Gluten-Free Crust is available upon request.
