About
We serve Kansas City style, Dry Rub BBQ. We're famous for our "BEST WINGS EVER" and our Beef Ribs, both of which were featured on Diner's, Drive-Ins & Dives as well as the book, "The Top 100 BBQ Restaurants In America". Our Southern sides are made fresh daily and we offer a decent Donut Bread Pudding a la mode covered in a Caramel Bourbon Sauce (with or without the Bourbon) Both stores offer Bourbon Blushies and our St Matthews location on Bauer Ave has a full bar with over 150 different Bourbons. Both of our locations use Solar Power and ecologically sensitive to-go packaging with no plastic. As a result of the Pandemic, we are currently operating as a CarryOut Restaurant ONLY. 2% of all sales

First BBQ stop, and this did not disappoint. The pickles were a taste sensation. The BBQ was also top notch. The Mac and Cheese was also fab.

Awesome....bottom line. Had a large group of about 20. We called ahead and they were able to accommodate us. Service was good and timely even though our group was large and the restaurant was slammed. Everyone raved about their food. I ordered Momma's Meatloaf...and it...was NOT like my Mom's (no offense Mom!). Highly recommend!!!More

Stopped in here on A Saturday afternoon. Visit wasn’t planned but glad we did. The place was fairly empty. The place is nice and welcoming. Our waitress Allison was awesome. She was very informative and had a great personality. I ordered Burnt Ends with Cheesy...Corn and Baked Beans. My wife ordered Ribs with Potato Salad. Everything was so good. Ribs and Burnt Ends very well cooked and still tender. We were going to get dessert but they were out of ice cream, our loss. Would definitely recommend this place if in the area.More

This is the first Dinners, Drive-Ins, and Dives place we found that had good food. We have been to about 10 through the USA and FINALLY one that was worthy. Our server, Damon, should be elected the mayor of Louisville as he was delightful with...great service and recommendations. We ate lunch and my wife had the burnt ends, Mac n cheese, & green beans - All were off the hook!! I devoured a 1/2 rack of ribs, green beans, and sweet cornbread. The ribs are served with just the rub and you add sauce to your taste - best way for ribs!! Fortunately there were napkins on the table and we had wet wipes but I still needed to go to the sink and clean myself up. Then when arriving back at our motorhome I washed AGAIN - But it was worth it!!! Best BBQ in a very long time. Thanks to Momma's for doing it right!!!More

Parking was very difficult. We ordered the meatloaf with potato salad and baked beans and the fried bologna sandwich with potato salad and coleslaw. We also ordered a half rack of pork ribs. I wasn't fond of the texture of the meatloaf but the smokey...flavor was good. The potato salad was supposed to be a mustard potato salad but it needed more. The baked beans were heated up pork n beans, thin sauce. I wish I would have asked what kind of pickles they served. They may have been good but know they are bread and butter and not dill or spicy. The pork ribs has a good dry rub, they do have a chew. Not tough but my preference is a little more fall off the bone.The fried bologna was the best thing we had. The service was great.More

So the beef ribs are absolutely terrible, I needed a knife to hack through the meat. The mac and cheese was ok, baked beans were amazing. The pork ribs are actually good but when you come to the brisket its also another failure. I would...avoid this place and head over to Louis hot chicken and BBQ, they have mouth watering amazing food, but no ribs. They were much more interesting then this place. Personally it's on my never visit again list.More

Really good BBQ. Mac n Cheese, baked beans, and mashed potatoes were solid. Food came out really quick. They use sweet pickles for their fried pickles. We prefer dill but they were still pretty good, too. Our waitress was great.

I've been here twice and each time has left me speechless. It was my birthday and my entire family gathered here. Our waitress Allison set the tone for the evening. She was awesome! She was efficient despite having a brand new ordering system and she...interacted with us all including our grandkids. The food was the next special things. My daughter had the grilled cheese brisket sandwich and she was blown away. I had the pork nachos along with my son and they were to die for. My granddaughter had the ribs, awesome! My wife had the pulled pork sandwich which was a killer. I could go on and on but it was a special evening made special by the food and service of Momma's!More

We travel the country in our RV. We found Mama's when looking for Cave Hill Cemetery...Ya gotta see that when in Louisville. Colonel Sanders & Muhammad Ali gravesites are there. Back to BBQ.. I had never heard of burnt ends so I tried them &...OMG!!!!! They have several different flavors of BBQ sauce at table. All were delicious. We love Louisville food. Many great restaurants & great Evan Williams Bourbon. Take the tour but you'll be a bit lit when it's over...lol Our last trip to Mama's was in 2019. Site has no option for that date! It's illegal to go to Louisville without trying Mama's...lol We're headed up there as soon as this Covid massacre is settled down.More

(English / Español) Any business that fulfills a social task is a business we should go to; and if in addition, as in the case of Momma's, it is recognized for its food, all the more reason to go there. By the end of 2020,...it had given almost U$ 500,000 in charity. Impressive!I went, determined to try the grilled cheese sandwich with fried bologna (that sausage that Americans love so much): a hearty sandwich, with three pieces of bologna, lightly salted, between texas toasts. Delicious. The sides I ordered were sweet corn with cheese and potato salad. Well worth the trip! // Todo negocio que cumple una labor social es un negocio al que debemos ir; y si además, como en el caso de Momma´s, es reconocido por su comida, con mayor razón. Hasta fines de 2020, había entregado casi U$ 500,000 a obras de caridad. Impresionante! Fui, decidido a probar el grilled cheese sandwich con bologna frita (ese embutido que tanto les gusta a los americanos): un sánguche contundente, con tres trozos de bologna, ligeramente -en punto- salada, entre texas toasts. Delicioso. Los acompañamientos que pedí fueron el maíz dulce con queso y la ensalada de papas. Vale la pena ir!More

We never had been to Momma's before. We were in town for the GIE Expo. They were the ones that are open past 8 o'clock. The first impression that we were in for a treat was the fragrant wood smoked meat smells as soon as...we opened our vehicle door. I smoke meat myself, but let me tell you, I have never tasted better wings then what we got served!! The service matched the food. Totally magnificent. This will be on our list of must go to in the years to come!!More

We have been to Momma's numerous times and we always love the food and have incredible service, but yesterday was over the top amazing! We live about an hour and a half away but always have to stop when in the area, it's that good!...Yesterday we had 2 soccer games in Louisville a few hours apart and planned to bring the team in for lunch in between. I had planned to call them 2 hours before our arrival to give them a heads up, but when our first game was rained out we had nowhere to go for 3 hours, so I called to see if they could accommodate our group with only a 30 minute call ahead. On super short notice, and even understaffed like the majority of restaurants in our country right now, they said they could do it. They even gave us the upper room, which is always perfect for a group of kids so they don't disturb other patrons. They warned us that they wouldn't have another server coming in to help for another hour but we promised to be patient in the mean time. They actually ended up sending us Alex right away and he was incredible! He was working tables downstairs and still managed to keep our group of 42 (yes 42!) people covered, mostly by himself. As a restaurant owner, I would love to have a few Alex's working for us! He was super attentive despite the situation and did an amazing job. Of course the bartender and cook played huge roles as well as those that helped get the food out to the tables! It was just incredible service all around. And of course the food was as delicious as it always is, especially the spicy fried pickles! Thank you Momma's and staff for always being amazing! We will see you again soon :)More

Had the brisket grilled cheese sandwich which was really good. Also had an order of the chicken wings and could have made a meal of those things. They were very good.

Coming here from Central Indiana and not being familiar with the area I had to do a little research to figure out what I wanted to eat.. Bbq just sounded good and I stumbled upon this place.. Me and my family always watches Diners, Drive...Ins and Dives. So as soon as I seen that they were on the show - I was excited to go and try it. Their best wings ever was exactly how it sounds. Best wings ever! We had the sweet and the spicy BBQ sauce - though both were very good - the wings were good all on their own. We also got green beans and macaroni and cheese which were very good. We decided to grab a beer (nice selection of beer on draft) and do take out. Our server was very nice - the restaurant/bar was very well kept. My one and only complaint (which is more on me) is that I didn't get more wings. My kids (who wanted burgers that night) wanted to try my wings. Before I knew it - they were gone gone gone. Very pleased with our whole experience! Kudos!More
