Roadfood is my compass when I travel the US.
Based in Grand River’s, KY for a week, there were four options.
So we took an evening drive to Marion, KY and on to Sturgis.
Marion Pit Bar-B-Q is a standard BBQ shack, offering chopped on a bun or chopped on a platter. We did not anticipate there to be no seating in the chill wind and snow-covered ground. Fortunately a 24-hour coin laundry across the street beckoned.
We rolled out to Coach’s Corner in Sturgis, KY, the fragrance in the parking lot is a sweeter, richer KFC, and the chicken is superb. Everything but the drinks, plates, tray, bread and pie is deep-friend. We rescued the mushrooms and okra from their breading. I love chicken livers, the Mrs loves chicken gizzards, we got both, leaving a pile for lunch the next day. Coconut pie was so-so.
