The Restaurant: Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn, Owensboro, KY

The Skinny: If the word buffet brings on horrifying flashbacks of cut-price cruises, get yourself down to the Moonlite Bar-B-Q in Owensboro. The legendary BBQ Buffet at this family-style roadside joint is a carnivore’s nirvana, thanks to tables groaning with plates of chicken, pulled ham, mutton, beef, and the star attraction: ribs. The trick lies in the slow cooking over a hickory-log fire in the restaurant’s custom-built pits. Diners add their own tangy, tomato-y sauce from pitchers at the table. —Emma Sloley
