We stopped here, passing through Louisville, and loved it! The BBQ and sides were all delicious, and great cornbread too! If you're looking for some good BBQ, you won't be disappointed!

I am from Texas so I am sometimes critical of BBQ. The best BBq I've ever had was in San Angelo Texas. But this place is really good. Don't know if it is the best in Louisville because it was the only place I tried. I will say that I was impressed. It was smoked very well. The portions were... More

Disappointed that i can't eat here all the time! ( live out of state) Erich the owner was really great, took a picture with us. The brisket was the best, pickles and onion were superb, ribs tender as heck. Reasonable prices. Food network was there just a few days before. A must place to eat!!!

Best BBQ we ever had. I had the 3 sandwich platter. Hubby had the BBQ sampler. The Owner, Eric is fantastic and the serving staff was friendly and helpful. The neighborhood is not the greatest, but worth the trip for the food.

Serving some GREAT BBQ. The owners were very friendly and provided excellent service. Their theme for the restaurant is very original. The furnishings are from the 50's & 60's tables and chairs. Very Second Hand Shop where everything is for sell. I had the 1/2 side of ribs. Just great. Very meaty and tasty. Reasonable prices.

All four meals cleaned down to the plate. Casual simple atmosphere. Colorful staff. Great beer selection. Yep, neighborhood a bit sketchy, but more old than threatening. Just another slice of America well worth stopping.

...but I didn't. The smoked chicken was tasty and the brisket was good but tasted like they started with a corned beef brisket, which was a little different. The beef "Flintstones" ribs were okay but the way they were cut left a LOT of fat. Jalapeño cornbread was just sweet cornbread with jalapeños in it. The pintos were delicious as... More

I had a lunch break in between parts of my interview and decided since I was in Louisville I would get some southern BBQ. Driving to this place I was a little worried because it is surrounded by sketchy looking neighborhoods, but do not let that turn you away! This place used to be a store until it was converted....
