Top Five Restaurants in Paintsville, KY

1. Taste of Amish

Address: 950 Bdwy St Paintsville, KY 41240

Phone: (606) 264-5926

Visiting Taste of Amish is an essential stop on your trip to Paintsville. A family owned and operated business, they boast a high-quality deli, amish goods, and daily home-cooked meals. From hearty sandwiches and soups, to bologna salad (an Eastern KY classic), to southern chicken and dumplings -- you'll love their food. The best part? It's very affordable.

Address: 316 Main St Paintsville, KY 41240

Phone: (606) 264-7064

Mexican restaurants are at the core of the dining scene for many of Kentucky's rural communities -- and Paintsville is no exception. The choice of the locals? Mi Hacienda on Main St.! Don't miss the seafood burrito (stuffed with shrimp, crab, scallops, and covered in cheese sauce), the Hawaiian fajitas (your choice of steak, chicken, or shrimp served with fajita veggies and grilled pineapple), or their delicious chorizo dip (queso with mexican chorizo).

3. Wilma's Restaurant

Address: 212 Court St Paintsville, KY 41240

Phone: (606) 789-5911

Wilma's is best known for their buffet, country breakfast, salad bar, and home cooking. If visiting, my recommendation is to get the buffet (an example menu: fried fish, cabbage rolls, mashed potatoes, corn, brown beans, mustard greens, and home fries on Fridays). However, save room for dessert -- don't miss out on getting a slice of their delicious homemade pie!

Honorary mentions: Though a chain, a fantastic pizza option in Eastern Kentucky is Giovanni's. It's a classic of the region! The Paintsville Dairy Queen is also unique, featuring offerings that cannot be found on other DQ menus. It's worth the stop!
