In 1987, Colby and Carol MacQuarrie began their journey with Colby’s Fine Foods and Spirits in downtown Owensboro. With a focus on American casual dining, Colby’s strives to provide seasonal dishes paired with a broad wine and bar selection.
Their menu favorites include homemade chicken tenders, with or without buffalo sauce, seasoned prime rib and salmon served grilled, blackened or with lemon pepper. All of the dressings, with the exception of the Caesar, are made in-house and are served over crisp lettuce in the form of a side salad, dinner salad or can easily be used as a dipping sauce.
Ten years ago a new burger interpretation landed on Colby’s specials menu and, although it has never graced the pages of the menu, it is still ordered almost weekly.
The black and blue burger is a half pound of blackened ground chuck kissed on the grill and sprinkled with a helping of robust blue cheese. It is then topped with lettuce, tomato, and onion and served on a toasted egg bun.
This tasty hunk of a burger is best served with sweet potato fries and a signature Long Island iced tea which arrives at your table in a giant mason jar.
If you have a craving for a unique burger or any of their signature dishes with a twist, the Colby’s team is always ready for an off-menu curveball.
Colby’s Fine Food and Spirits is located at 204 W. Third Street and they are available to serve you Monday thru Thursday 11 am -9:30 pm and Friday and Saturday 11 am -10:30 pm. They also have a banquet room for events and offer carry-out options.
