Claudia Sander's Dinner House (Shelbyville,KY)
We have enjoyed visiting the Claudia Sanders Dinner House in Shelbyville,KY for many years. This is the place the Colonel built for Mrs Sanders to run while he went on the road hawking his chicken franchises. Rebuilt about 10 years ago after a major fire it is a 'genteel' sort of place noted for it's Bluegrass Horse Farm area roots. In addition to the usual (but cooked 'correctly' ) 11 herb and spice recipe chicken they have a full menu that includes several Family Style AYCE dinners of chicken and/or livers with the famous 8 veggies served over and over. Things like Corn Pudding, Stewed Tomatoes, Mock Oysters (eggplant cassarole), Glazed Beets are part of those wonderful side dishes.
On Sunday they also have a Buffet available as well as the normal dinner menu. If you are ever in the area the CSDH is on US 60 about halfway between Franfort and Louisville. I recommend the place highly.
We had a review by the Sterns on the restaurant list, but it seems to have not survived the transistion to the new format. We hope to have it back on the list soon.
