Hammer heads is a Louisville Landmark their only problem is they are too good. Often times they run out of food because so many people come in. I always get the chorizo burger with pomfret cooked in duck fat. It isn’t cheap but it is...More

What a great place! I ordered the crispy Mac & Cheese balls (which are amazing), Grippo fries (spicy) and the ribs (awesome rub, slow cooked and fell off the bone). Made by people who love food! The Hammerhead has tables for about 20 people and...More
