Our sandwiches are served on freshly baked loaf bread or buns. We also serve prepared to order homemade potato chips, which are a story in their own right. We once used store bought chips and ran out one day, so we tried to make some real quick by cutting our own - wrong! It was a mess. But the idea was in our heads, so we kept working and developed the chips we serve today. Enjoy! (Add a Patti's House Salad or Potato Chips by the bag)

The National Pork Producers council recommends pork to be served pink. This allows it to be more juicy and tender. Patti's was named National Pork Producers Restaurant of the Year for the state of Kentucky '89-91, and third runner up in the nation in '89! Today we serve an average of 100,000 pounds of pork a year in our little town of 350 people. Not bad!
Ella Mae's Chicken
Ella Mae, who was a wonderful cook back in the 80's, first came up with this dish. It keeps changing a little every few years, but keeps it's basic great taste. For our 30 year celebration we changed it by adding freshly grilled asparagus over our grilled chicken breast. This is topped with slices of black forest ham coming off the grill and sautéed mushrooms. Then covered in our homemade cheese sauce. This really is a great chicken dish and it's MY favorite.
Another old timer, Don started this dish in the 90's. Charbroiled chicken with shredded mozzarella cheese, diced green onions and crumbled bacon.

Six to eight inches of "mile high" meringue pies: Coconut, Lemon or Chocolate
Coconut, graham cracker crumbs and pecans in an egg batter and baked with a flaky pie shell. We top this with sliced bananas, whipped cream and more sliced bananas. This pie got its name because the kids say it looks like baked sawdust. It was mother's first published recipe (Bon Appetit, May 1983).
Boo Boo Pie
A rare time when Mother tried to use someone else's recipe and it failed. She gave the mistake to us kids to eat and she went back to the drawing board to redo this pie. She proudly brought out the second pie which was the way it was supposed to be, but we liked the mistake better. This meant Mother had to figure out what she had done wrong and we boys had to figure out a name for this pie: and so, "Boo Boo" pie came to be. It's a rich brownie type pie with a gooey, coconut macaroon filling topped with whipped cream and a cherry.
Kentucky Chocolate Pecan
An old Kentucky tradition and very rich. It is pecan pieces joined with semi-sweet chocolate chips in a flaky pie shell.
John Y. Brown - Butterscotch Pecan

Named for my Dad, it's a rich, dark double fudge pie topped with coffee ice cream, piled high with whipped cream, "drizzled" with chocolate syrup and topped with a cherry.

Dutch Peach Pie
A delightful mixture of custard & peaches, finished with a pecan strudel topping "drizzled" with caramel. We suggest it a la mode.
This is another Kentucky tradition. It is a buttery sugar, egg & cornmeal blend baked to a golden custardy texture. It came to be after a lady started to make a pecan pie and ran out of pecans. The next door neighbor came over and saw this strange looking pie and asked what kind of pie it was. The lady replied, "It's just pie." With our Kentucky accents it became "chess pie" - a mistake everyone decided to keep.
Old Fashioned Butter Crumb Apple
A careful mixture of sliced apples, brown sugar and cinnamon baked in a flakey pie shell and finished with a butter crumb topping "drizzled" with caramel. Great when heated with American Cheese or a la mode.
A double scoop of ice cream with choice of chocolate syrup, hot fudge or caramel, topped with almonds, whipped cream and a cherry.
Just for the kids. A single scoop of ice cream with chocolate syrup, whipped cream and a cherry.
Ice Cream - Single or Double Scoop
