The History of Rib Lickers

• 2013 •

April 30th 2013 Rib Lickers started with the vision of pairing the highest quality smoked meats with small batch hand made sauces and fresh sides. Within 8 months the restaurant had grown beyond the tent and cooking began at the current location on Scottsville Road in Glasgow.


• 2014 •

January 2014 began with a bang as Rib Lickers opened with 4 picnic tables at the current facility. The popularity of Rib Lickers was growing fast, and getting a seat at one of those tables was more difficult than finding the golden ticket! It was time to expand again…

March 2014 we began construction on our dining room which included a full bar as well as the Big Rig stage. The dining room opened in August 2014 and helped Rib Lickers to quickly become not only the BBQ capital of Kentucky, but also a hub for live music. Our Glasgow KY location serves over 150,000 people per year, and growing!
