Lizzie B’s Cafe Bakery
With a super comfy and unique decor of something you would find on the Big Island this place is rocking on the weekend with live music! I love to go when I know they are going to be having one of my favorite soups:loaded baked potato, broccoli and cheese, chicken noodle, and lobster bisque. Their lobster bisque is to die for! Pair it with a hot ham & cheese and you have a fantastic lunch! Oh and if you go and they have the milky way cake…GET IT!

History of our smoked meats

Smoked fresh everyday for your enjoyment & pleasure!

* Pulled Pork
* Chicken
* Beef Brisket
* Turkey Breast
* Mutton
* Goat
* Ribs
* Salmon

After our smoking process which at times could be as long as 16 hours with Hickory wood, we put our meats through our secret process for a few more hours and then we work our fingers to the bone to pull the tender meats off the bone before we treat them with our Dip to preserve and seal in the flavors unique to every meat we smoke.

Homemade Sides and Sauces

Just about all we serve at JJ’s is homemade. Our sauces are several generations old and are a tightly kept family secret and are made as needed by the owners themselves.

Authentic WESTERN KENTUCKY Sauce *
Bold with a peppery finish
best with Pork

Mahogany MELON Sauce *

compliments all smoked meats

Mac’s MEAN Sauce *
Hot Sauce
The name says it all

Daviess County DIP *

All of our side items which include some of the old favorites such as mashed potatoes, Mac & Cheese, Green and Baked Beans are all homemade following our own secret recipes just to name a few and by golly they are to die for.
