Very Good BBQ

When we think of BBQ in Louisville Mark's, Bootleg and Jumbo's are our go to places. Mark's gets most of our business because they are more convenient on our way home to get takeout. Mark's is a local favorite among Louisvillians. Love the corn on the cobb.

For a chain, I like this place. The service was prompt and quality of my pork was really good. There are ample amounts of meat and the "sides" they offer are very good as well. When I want some bar-b-que, if I am not fixing it myself, I will go to Mark's!

Decided to try a local restaurant for lunch during our drive through Louisville vs the usual chain crap along the interstate. We scored! Great food (I had the pulled pork lunch special), quick and very friendly service! In a very cute part of town as well!

For this place to have that high of a ranking on here the BBQ was terrible. Theirs not much smoke or moisture in the meat . But they might be having a bad day

If you leave Mark's hungry, it's your own fault. The portions are massive, the bbq is incredible, & don't even get me started on their deep fried pickles...omg so good! Our server, Samantha, absolutely made our visit though. She was so attentive & accommodating, & her bright & bubbly personality kept us laughing all night. Definitely worth another visit on... More

This is what you would expect of a barbecue restaurant: friendly service, limited options for vegetarians, standard barbecue decor. The best dish is barbecue chicken salad, with their great barbecue Ranch dressing. Given the prime location in the Highlands, however, it's best to bypass this restaurant & head for any number of nearby restaurants.

We were looking for a good place to eat after the marathon and saw that Mark's got some good reviews. It took a long time to get our order and they didn't seem that busy. But great BBQ can be worth the wait. Well the BBQ was actually worse than the service. The pulled pork was very dry and tasteless.... More
