The best hamburger ever!!!

Hambuergesrs and frensh fries are the best you will everywhere. In the middle of a neighbor, this not fancy restaurante will suprise you with delicious hamurgers and ribs. Be pepared for wait outside.

My wife and I went here for dinner at the recommendation of local friends and were not disappointed. The taxi ride from downtown hotel had my wife a bit worried about the neighborhood, but once we arrived and entered the restaurant those concerns disappeared (it reminded us of a favorite dive back home). The French fries were fantastic as were... More

Hammerheads is a great little bar/ resturaunt in Germantown in Louisville. Truffle fries are to die for. We had Venison Burger, Duck Burger and Pork Belly, lettuce and tomato. Good food and great atmosphere

You want to take someone out for a good meal in Louisville? You go here. The location is weird. The place is small. Prepare to wait. (but, it will be worth it.) Sweet potato fries, duck fat fries, and Grippo's fries -- all winners. I LOVE their garcia burger and also their pork tacos. My husband always says their burgers... More

I had heard a lot of people talk about Hammerheads, but had never stopped in. So glad I did. The atmosphere is very casual, laid back. Walking in leads to a very low ceiling and cozy dining area. The bar is old school with a great bartender. He had great suggestions for food and beers. We started with the Mac... More

We've been three times now, always for dinner. It's fantastic. The food is fresh and creative. Comfort foods with modern twists. It looks like a dive bar and is in a residential neighborhood. It's always busy. It's like you've discovered something off the beaten path, but given how busy it is and the number of reviews, it's not a secret.

If you're an adventurous person who wants great food in a very hip setting, this is THE #1 PLACE in Louisville. Duck tacos? Elk burgers? Pork Belly BLT? Lamb ribs? Knowledgeable and friendly staff helped recommend other cool bars (like Haymarket). It helped to know that - we aren't the 4th St Live type of people. This is a must-eat... More

Very busy place,all I had were the lamb ribs. I got to say never had lamb ribs,but they were simply delicious. The next time I go I'll try one of there unique burgers, or chicken and waffles.

Go early on a weeknight or be prepared for a wait. While the decor is nothing special, the food certainly is. Service was very attentive and friendly. The menu is unique and everything was delicious. We had the mac-n-cheese balls, which were crispy, creamy and smoky. I had the chicken and waffle - the sweet potato waffle is the star... More

It's in like a basement of a old home. Not fixed up at all. It's small and cheaply done. It's not that inexpensive. We spent 55.00 and it was ok but far from great. The Mac and cheese was just ok. Tacos were good but I've had much better other places. I just would hate for someone from out of... More
