Great food! Favorite by far were the truffle fries. The baby back ribs were the best I've ever had, as was the Mac & cheese. Definitely worth the calories!!! Baked beans were awesome too! 👍

Great food and great variety. A little pricey, but worth it if you can spare an extra couple bucks for a great meal.

I went to this "dive" on a weekday in May 2015. I was told by a local that this place was a dive but had great food. It is in a very residential part of Louisville, KY and if you didn't actually search for it, you would never find it! It is located in an old style garage that you... More

I stop in everytime i come to Louisville. Literally can not make a bad choice. Tonight i had the baby back ribs for the first time and they were potentially the best i have ever had.

If you go on a weekend night expect a wait but the food is worth it. My husband and I split a full slab of ribs and brought a third of it home. They were smoked to perfection with a very good sauce. I highly recommend the truffle fries. A good selection of beer, others in my party enjoyed several.... More

This place was so good... we sat at the bar because there are only like 40 people who fit in the actual "restaurant" area, and we went on a Saturday night, knowing we'd have a wait. We ordered the Venison and Elk burgers, and split them - I liked the Elk burger better but both were pretty fantastic. We also... More

Looks like a little dive bar but the food is excellent. Service is fun and efficient. The seating is sparse and it's often crowded but always worth the wait!! The ambiance/atmosphere is unique and fun.

So much fun! great ribs and catfish and the best baked beans on the planet! Very fun and casual with cool music…it's very small-actually it's the first floor of a house! Don't miss it….we can't wait to go back! Did I mention their great selection of beer…cheap!

I was expecting great things from reviews and was sorely disappointed. Ordered truffle fries, cheeseburger and salad. The burger was tender but had no superior taste. Fries seems overcooked and greasy. Salad good. Extensive beer menu, which I liked as well as the dive type atmosphere. Staff friendly. Interesting, different menu, including duck sliders and duck tacos. Maybe should have... More

Don't let the outside of this place decieve you. And you better get there early. The food is outstanding. My wife, daughter, and I all got different types of burgers and we shared. They were all great. I think the price is a little higher than some burger joints, but prices are reasonable. The place was very crowded, but the... More
