About
Bootleg Bar-B-Q provides a variety of dine-in or carry-out options and award winning catering services. For more than 20 years Bootleg BBQ has established itself as a true Kentucky original with lean and tender pit-smoked barbecue, made-from-scratch side dishes, desserts, sauces, and Louisville’s best wings. The foundations of Bootleg’s signature “Bootleg-style” offerings are rooted in old-fashioned cooking techniques and “from the farm” family recipes handed down through the generations, drawing heavily from Kentucky’s rich tradition of smoked & cured meats and home-style country cooking. Locals and travelers alike often stop by for a generous helping of down-home hospitality and barbeque that’s

Bar-B-Q was excellent. I had the Turkey Bar-B-q sandwich with a side of slaw. My wife had the bar-b-q chicken sandwich. The bar-b-q sandwiches were excellent and worth the short ride to get there. The building they are in now is nothing to look at...More

People are missing out if they don’t order their chicken wings. The only bad thing is that you have to call them in 3 or 4 hours ahead of time. These were Seriously the best chicken wings I’ve ever eaten.
