Windy Corner Market – Lexington Kentucky

On Saturday night, the staff of Everything Kentucky ventured out in to the country….Horse Country to visit a cute, quaint little restaurant called the Windy Corner. This little country store and restaurant certainly lived up to its reputation. We’ve only ever heard good things about this place and it certainly didn’t disappoint.

When you walk in this place, country living is the immediate feel. From Kentucky Pride goodies for sale all around to the hustle and bustle of the filled tables of people eating good food and enjoying a wonderful Saturday evening, this place has a little bit of everything.

This little joint offers a wonderful menu and their dinner specials are very unique. I had the Shrimp and Grits and it was to die for. Seriously, some of the best shrimp and grits I have ever had and my family knows grits, honey!

If you have out of town guests that have never been to Lexington, I would highly recommend this for a great little lunch spot. I think this is the type of place that anyone would enjoy!

Pros: great food, helpful staff, great desserts (the cheesecake did NOT disappoint). The wait to get our food wasn’t bad and they were packed. I really, really like this place!
 

Cons: The only thing that I didn’t like is you walk up and order. I’ve never been a fan of ordering and then sitting down. The line was huge and you always have this one annoying person that has stood in line for 20 minutes, finally makes it to the cash register to order and STILL has no clue what they want. COME ON! This is just my preference and not a deal breaker by any means!

Definitely want t to try their breakfast, it looks really good! We will for sure be back!!

All in all, I give it 7 out of 10 bourbons! For more information check out the Windy Corner Website and Facebook Page

Paint Lick, which is probably one of the most odd names for a community I have come across, is located in Garrard County on the fringes of the bluegrass region of Kentucky.   It lies along State Routes 21 and 52 east of the Lancaster, the county seat of Garrard County, and to the west of Berea.

Paint Lick was considered one of the most modern schools the area in 1912 when the original four rooms were built to accommodate grades k-12 in the small town of Paint Lick, Kentucky.   The brick building soon became too small to accommodate students so over the years a few additions were added including a gymnasium that was built in two sections.  The school served the community of Paintlick until 1994 when a new school was built in town.
