Living in Wilmore, there are only a few restaurant options unless if you want to drive into either Lexington or Nicholasville, that being said, I tried Tastebuds because it is a lot closer than Nicholasville or Lexington. The pizza is excellent, the sauce isn't sweet. So if you are in Wilmore for any reason, eat at Tastebuds!

Don't let the sketchy store front fool you. This is good pizza. And, the prices were very affordable. It's a nice place for the college kids to eat out on their budget. I think he should add a crispy thin crusted pizza.

Their pizza is the best around! They have friendly down home service! The trivia on the back of the menu is fun to do while waiting on the meal.

I was staying nearby and needed to get something quick and easy to eat. The inn recommended Tastebuds, a Very SHORT walk away. I haed a great pizza ready in minutes. The pizza was among the best I have had, great handtossed crust, plenty of toppings and service with a smile. Great little find.

Great food! In the Pharmacy. Makes great milkshakes! Old-timey atmosphere. We go there once a year when we're in Wilmore.

Great meal at Sim's which is a Tastebud's establishment. It is a slice of Americana that takes you back in time. Highly recommend the calzone! Not a lot of booths but the bar works fine.

For a tasty blend of history & small time charm, you gotta stop into Tastebuds. They have a fabulous thin pizza with variety of toppings, also good is the black bean nachos or chicken salad sandwich. Top it off with a malt, grab a bar stool & drink in the "It's a Wonderful Life" experience.

Have a sandwich in the setting of an old time soda fountain. It is an experience dripping with nostalgia. And they will make you an ice cream float I'm sure.

I've grown up in Wilmore, Ky. This place has changed hands several times. The pizza rocks. The milkshakes are awesome but are a little expensive, at least you used to get more with previous owners. I've had run-ins with the owners that haven't been the most positive. But they are generally nice people.

The pizza, and everything else on the menu, is delicious! Salads, pie, nachos--it's all yummy! The atmosphere is relaxed and enjoyable too. I just wish it was open later.
