The Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn

Patrick Bosley from the Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn dropped me a line to tell me that his new cookbook, “Family Favorites From Moonlite“, is now available from Amazon.com.

The Bosley Family has been serving award winning hickory-smoked barbecue, home-style vegetables and Blue Ribbon Desserts for four generations at the Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn in Owensboro, Kentucky. In a time of fast food and chains, the family owned Moonlite has become renowned for its food; featured in USA Today, the New York Times, Gourmet Magazine, Southern Living, The Travel Channel, The Food Network, and more.

Complied and edited by Patrick Bosley, Moonlite’s cookbook is a collection of family recipes that founded a Kentucky tradition. From Burgoo Soup and Banana Pudding, to Barbecue and Vegetables, This cookbook is full of recipes for just plain good food.

Patrick Bosley is the youngest grandson of Pappy and Catherine Bosley. It was Pappy and Catherine who made the Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn into a Kentucky Tradition from a 30 seat roadside stand back in 1963, to the 350 seat world famous restaurant before they passed away. Patrick Bosley is the Third Generation to contribute to Moonlite’s success, literally growing up working at the Moonlite, He still works there today with several other family members.

    Hi there. I saw a post from you in 2005 on Moonlite’s guestbook. You stated that you were going to have to visit. Did you make it? If so, what did you think? As a native of Owensboro but in Spring for 30 years now I still miss Moonlite. I ate there as a kid when it was a roadside dive. the Bosley’s are great. If you didnt get to make it then I would suggest that you order some burgoo and mutton, make a big cast iron skillett of corn bread, a gallon of sweet tea and prepare to gorge yourself.

    Best regards!
