Hometown Roots in Henderson, Kentucky Featured on ‘America’s Best Best Restaurants’
If there's one thing that we can all agree on, it's the fact that the internet has made it very easy to seek out new restaurants to try. Another thing we can agree on is - If something has been determined as 'America's Best', we need to try it.

About the Owner - Casey Todd
I had the chance to chat with Casey ahead of the big visit from the America's Best Restaurant crew. He was born and raised in Kentucky and has had restaurant fever since he was 14 years old.
How long have you been in the restaurant business?
"I started selling shaved ice with my brother when I was 14, and then took over the business at 18. I spent four years away and fell in love with the restaurant industry. So, I ran a seafood restaurant in Bowling Green for 7 years before returning to Henderson."
Are you able to use locally sourced products at Hometown Roots?
"Absolutely! In fact, during the appropriate seasons, we use 80% to 90% local produce and meats."
Hometown roots has been open since 2018. Casey also owns Roast Coffee Shop for the past three years, and a new BBQ venture, Homer's Barbeque that has been open for five months.
