Best Kentucky Hot Browns in Town

Arrived well after 9PM on a Sunday night, tired & hungry after a long drive to Lexington. We went to Ramsey's because of favorable online reviews and to this particular one because it was near our lodging for the night. We had expected an inviting diner-style atmosphere also based on the reviews. Instead what we found was a dimly-lighted sports... More

I love the veggie plate, the soup beans taste like my grandma's, as if they have been cooking for hours. The fried green tomatoes are always awesome. Cornbread is done right. The garden salad with homemade Ranch is enormous.

In a strip mall surrounded by office buildings, above a fitness center sits Ramsey's Diner. Actually was staying in Lexington and we needed to go eat and a friend suggested we eat here. It was a wonderful choice. It was actually summer (forgot to review it in a timely manner). Ramsey's has a small outside patio of which we took... More

We had asked a horse tour operator where the best place would be to try a Hot Brown, and we are so glad he steered us to Ramsey's! Turned out it was only a few blocks from where we were staying, too! Had read about the Hot Brown being a regional classic food and was not disappointed that I ordered... More

You must try Ramsey's if you are in Lexington. The pork chops with red sauce are my favorite. I always pair it with the fried corn, potato salad, and fried green tomatoes. The desserts are wonderful - cherry almond crisp is my favorite. You will not be disappointed.

The thing I like best about Ramsey's is the abundance of vegetables that you can come with your meal. They acquire as much of their produce locally as they can, so its fresh and supports the local farmers. The hot browns are very good and loaded with calories. Sometimes the food is overly salty. The cook could use a lighter... More

On the way to LEX airport, we stopped for "brunch". We were able to play corn hole game beforehand. I went for breakfast - pictured is what my brother had - he took more options with eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, and toast. My husband enjoyed the hot brown heaven and felt full all day! My sister in law enjoyed the vegetable... More

Well, that is what the locals say. Me, not so much. Heart attack on a plate is more like it. Not wanting to disappoint our hosts, I ordered it. It is an open face turkey, ham and tomato sandwich swimming in gooey cheesy liquid. I ate half, scraping off a lot of the cheesy gravy. Interesting. My husband had the... More
