  • Wouldn’t you druther go to Druther’s Restaurant?

    Those of us who grew up in the South in the ’70s fondly remember such bygone icons of Americana as the Z/28 Camaro, the original cast of “Saturday Night Live” and Druther’s.

    The last Druther’s Restaurant in America is in Campbellsville. The chain existed from 1963 until 1981.

    There used to be one in Hodgenville.

    If you’re 50-something, you may recall the jingle: “I’d druther go to Druther’s Restaurant.”
