We just came back from eating there for our first time.

Mama's Porch is hands down the best BBQ in town.
The best slaw and the best potato salad too.

I've eaten the BBQ from Georgia and Alabama but I've never had any better sauces than right down in Bronston.

When you cross the bridge there going to Bronston start looking to the left for the BBQ sign on the roof. It's back off the road alittle but you'll see it.

I heard about them here on topix and told them I'd give them a good word on here myself.

Go check them out and then get the word out. I'd hate to lose a restaurant this good.

$7.00 a tray. Thats right, a tray not a plate. That included the drink.

We had pulled pork, cole slaw, potato salad, dinner roll and drink. All in good portions. Left full. The bourbon bbq sauce was excellent.

By far the best BBQ within atleast a 5 hour drive. Better than anything in Owensboro. Sad thing is the majority here likes,"fried tators, fried ckicken,fried whatever else." It is truly a shame people can't appreciate great food around here. Peeps here will unload their wallets at Sonny's, Golden Corral etc, let alone other places in town for VERY inferior food. I Feel for Momma's Porch. If you were in Louisville, Knoxville, etc. you would thrive!! People here won't stray from where Grandpa ate. No doubt Momma's Porch best place to eat around here by far. If you eat at Sonny's you better try Momma's Porch. NO COMPARISON! You won't be disappointed.

I have yet to figure what people are calling BBQ around here??....seems they get some smoked meat, and splash a little bbq sauce on it, and call it a bbq??
They also do this out in the western part of this state, but I've never, in my lifetime, heard it being done in this area, and I am 58 years old.
The only way to 'bbq' is slow cook the smoked or other meat IN the sauce for a while, whether on a grill or in a cooker!
Then the meat has absorbed the flavor it needs to be called bbq'd.
It's no wonder most places close before they open.
But it takes all kinds, and not all have same tastes, huh?
I think Johnny B's was the best so far...too bad they closed.

Johnny B's still around - Oven's hooked up and resting - Don't know what he's doing since retirement - I drive past the machine at least once a month and start licking my lips -

What is the price for the all you can eat thing at Momma's now? It was $10 a person and included your drink back in the early spring-summer but I heard it went up. I was thinking of heading that way this weekend but was curious if the prices went up.( I will make the old lady stay home if they did lol)

Thanks!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Momma's Porch BBQ, and the price is perfect for me and my family on a tight budget!$8 a person and that's for your choice of pork or ribs, two sides a roll and a drink! I ate there when I moved to Bronston early Summer this year and I've been back numerous times and don't plan on moving any time soon, I'm close enough to walk if I had to and I would it's soooo good! I recommend it to ANYONE who likes BBQ, and it definetly has Sonny's beat hands down, and that used to be my fave place in Somerset to eat BBQ! You gotta check it out!!! Great place, and great people! If you haven't been yet, GO!!!!

If you like Sonny's don't waste another dime there. The BBQ at Mama's is far superior for a better price. In these hard times we should focus more on our locally owed restraunts instead of franchises like Sonny's. It's going to be up to us to keep Somerset's economy alive. Please support our family owned businesses instead of some corporate CEO in New York.
