Boondocks is a bar on 121 S. in western Kentucky just on the Tennessee border. It has been there for a while and has changed owners and names a few times, previously known as Largos. When new owner Nate first purchased the place with a couple other partners, they invested a good amount of money into it and made some major improvements, many flat screens, Wii Bowling, both bars are open, implemented a good menu...HOWEVER, recently, the "Holier Than Thou" self-righteous owner, Nate, has removed the partner owners, started thinning out the customers that he chooses not to have in there anymore, mostly locals, and is quickly making a bad name for himself and the bar. An overall view of the place is nothing more than a retirement building who only attract the seasonal elderly vacationers, locals are being banned, the place is filled with a good amount of electronics and many events take place, however, that is just compensation for the overpriced food, the yuppie attitude of the owner and management, the lack of good service, and completely bad environment- just another dive with a fancy dress. The entire place, including the terrible parking lot, is under more surveillance than the White House, there are cameras everywhere. That alone shows what Boondocks thinks of the surrounding area - is Western Kentucky really that bad? Here's the deal - It's almost summer, the bands that play at Boondocks, also play at other better bars in the area, and video games are for kids - want a good time without all of the BS? Save your money, go down the road and pick up some charcoal and a case of beer, go home, invite some friends over and save a ton of money.$8.00 for a burger and fries is ridiculous. There is better food in the area, evidently, Nate fails to realize that we live in a BBQ area, and I have not heard anyone screaming about his BBQ, except for himself on his face book page. Many of my friends have gone there, been overcharged multiple times on the credit cards, ordered food but never got served, they close earlier than other surrounding bars on weekdays, and it pretends to be a five star place, has that Yankee, uppity feel, and there are other places that are more welcoming. Some people like them, that's all fine, but it is way worth it to drive a little bit further down the road.

You obviously are quite familiar with the place, and you took a lot of time to rant about the joint. The question is...why?? If you don't like the place, don't go there. But instead you have an agenda where you tell the rest of us not to go there either. Really?? Just stay at home and BBQ all summer?? Yeah not so much. Some of us are sick of BBQ every single day. But go ahead and feel free to eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner around your campfire with your friends. Bring your banjo and pass it around to both of them. Yee freaking Haw!!! What's your agenda?

I am very familiar with the place, all of the people who have worked there, the previous 2 owners, as well as all of the surrounding businesses. Try not to take any offense to it, that was just my view of the place, unfortunately, sometimes the truth hurts. There are better places and things to do, and I think that Boondocks is way over rated. If you would like, I can tell you what I think of other businesses as I am a professional evaluator and business marketer. Personaly, I would rather go visit AppleBees.

John Smith, the Professional? Why don't you give your Real name?! Your so adamant on your knowledge of what goes on at Boondocks, why wouldn't you?? I will!! My name is Sandra Roberts. I run the kitchen there. But we're all a Team. So your not just trying to hurt our boss, but all of us as well..and I'm not going to allow you to do that!!! I've lived here 22yrs! Seen the likes of you come and go!! Funny how you say Nate is running off the locals...No, the locals are at his place and not going to where you work now!!! Sorry!! He's doing something right, and some of you people just can't stand it!! Well, tough shit! Get over it!! We're not going anywhere, people like You make us work harder!! We have a GREAT Customer Base!! With New people stopping in All the time!!! No Drama, we all work together, something those of you who are gone just didn't fit the team!!! It's obvious Nate has invested in his business, but that's not just writing a check. He's put Time, Effort, and his Heart into that place. And his crew will defend that!!! You don't work there because your not worth having!!! So either shut your pie hole about what you have no clue about, or go back to being "Fry Boy" at Red Lobster!! Because people will get sick of you here fast!!! P.S. what the hell are you doing looking at Nate's facebook page anyway??? Get a life dude!!!

Never worked there, been in there a handful of times, and I am just very observant and realistic, you just showed that the truth hurts, as I mentioned, it is just my opinion, that's my job, and part of my job is to remain anonymous.

The staff and ownership of Boondocks are to be commended for their hard work, investment and appreciation of this community. I hope they do well in this season. I also appreciate how they put up with lowlife dirtbags who anonymously disparage others because they are too spineless to say anything face to face.

It's funny to me how paranoid he is. I was told he is always making statements about how much money he comes up short ALL THE TIME and now has the most screwed up system where the girls are carrying their own money (which takes too much time and has become one of the reasons I've quit going down there) Funny to everyone though he constantly was being told that litte tina was stealing from him and yet it took him forever to fire her...DUH he was screwing her, and from what I've been told still does. Yet he has gotten rid of the 2 girls that worked in the dining room on the weekends without batting an eye. I for one have overheard him talking to some of the staff and he is way to hard on them girls...ITS JUST A DAMN BAR!!!!!! It's not like it's a long time career that any should be proud to have. And it's become so uptight that it's not any fun to even go there anymore. Oh well, it was exciting to think ONE bar was actually going to make it there...trust me though, it won't as long as he is there.

What a load of CRAP!!!! Your full of Shit!!! The girls Do NOT carry their own money around!! Our system isn't screwed up, we've added another station!! You've heard him talking to the staff and he's way too hard on the girls...What a load of Crap there too!!! Funny, you don't go in there anymore, but you have all this knowledge??? Your a Former Employee who's feelings are hurt, because you thought you were indispensable!!! And your not!!! The other posts, tsk tsk tsk, girl, I thought maybe you were more mature then that!!!! And as for a Career there? I love working for Nate, he's not uptight, none of us are there!! WE have a GREAT time and our crew is almost Perfect NOW, now that all the Drama Queens and Lazy Troublemakers are gone, sorry, you just didn't fit it!!!! Nate isn't a pushover like probably all the other bosses you've gotten away with shit are!!! You couldn't do it there, and that's why your not there!!!! We work hard, we're not Babysitters!
