A few months ago, my husband and I discovered this little adorable Caribbean restaurant tucked away in Paducah KY. From the moment you pull into the parking lot, you are whisked away to the beach with a Caribbean feel. Let me tell you about Flamingo Row.
If you are not looking for this adorable restaurant, you will miss it. It is tucked away behind Home Depot close to the Kentucky Oaks Mall.
The atmosphere is casual and fun, great for business meetings or lunch with your kids. They have a beautiful bar area, tastefully away from the dining area for families, but roomy and vibrant for adults who choose to have a drink with their dinner or lunch.
The inside has a funky and fresh vibe with tall palm trees, tiki huts, sand, iguanas, and more all scattered around the restaurant.
So now that I have introduced you to the restaurant– let me tell you about the food!
Locally, Flamingo Row is know for their stuffed breads, called Fillymings. Fillymings are small loaves of bread with deli-sandwhich ingredients baked into the center. If you are watching the carbs, Flamingo Row offers some fresh and creative takes on salad.
This is the Big Kahuna — my hubby's favorite sandwich there. It is topped with pulled pork which tastes out of this world, and angus beef for the burger and then topped with all kinds of goodies on a pretzel bun. Yes — it is SO delicious.
Then for the appetizer, we tried the Shipwreck — which is a loaf of seeded baguette topped with bacon, tomatoes, cheese, green onions, and then broiled until everything is melted together. It tastes like a baked potato on bread.
Another of my husband's favorite is the Mondo Ribeye that they have. Sometimes they run a special and you can get this ribeye for $20. Believe me it is HUGE.
Seriously — the food here is amazing and you need to go and check it out. We are already making plans to go back and eat there again. They have a shrimp dish that is calling my name!
Have you ever eaten at FLamingo Row? What was your favorite dish?

I was no way compensated for this post. We paid for our own food. I just absolutely love the place and wanted to share my love with you!
