Long day of travel and stumbled upon this. Everything smelled awesome but opted to take salads back to the hotel. Husband had pulled pork w/honey mustard dressing and I had pulled chicken w/ranch. Cornbread a must. We didn't want croutons but bartender suggested so we...said ok. Now I know whhy!!!! Awesome croutons (I was sur was made from cornbread). All in all very good, server at bar phenomenal! If in well when in area again will definitely stop in and this time get ribs.More

Hubby, girls, and I ordered a little bit of everything to share...wings, cornbread, pickles, mac & cheese, cheesy corn, mashed potatoes & gravy, and meatloaf, bologna, turkey, and pulled pork sliders. The Best: wings (amazing rub...so good. seriously.), cornbread (just like my mama use to...make), mashed potatoes & gravy, pulled pork and meatloaf. Pickles were also really good. Average: mac & cheese, turkey, and the cheesy corn. All three were take it or leave it. Service was good. Location and atmosphere is just so. But if you're wanting something great for your taste buds...definitely give it a try!More

After a long day, with no lunch, I wanted something very quick and close to our hotel. Checked TripAdvisor and saw Momma’s. When pulling up, it looks like a pretty indistinct strip mall restaurant that didn’t scream any bells or whistles. My favorite kind of...place. Once you walk in, you’re greeted warmly and they have booth seating and some TVs at the bar. We were directed to have ribs, wings, and the donut bread pudding. Ok, sounds good. The wings were perhaps the BEST wings I have ever had, and I’m afraid to think of how many hundred ( maybe thousands) of wings I have had in my lifetime. Excellent. The rub is to die for. The homemade ranch dressing also fabulous, and I don’t normally even like ranch. The ribs were so tender and meaty, they were excellent, but I must say the wings were my favorite. UNTIL.... bread pudding. I consider myself a bread pudding snob. I don’t like it dry, crunchy or chewy, and I want it soft, and made with a lot of the custard they pour over to bake. as well as a great sauce. This had it all. Yes, it’s sweet. But I just may have to try making bread pudding with day old cake donuts because it was simply divine. Yes, divine. Oh, I almost forgot. Fried pickles. Spicy. You won’t regret it. So, Keto was put on a temporary hold that day, but if I was going to fall off the wagon, I’m sure glad I did it at Momma’s. Not sure when I’ll be back, but I’ll make my dinner stop here.More

Our son-in-law recommended this place because he believes it has the best wings ever! He was not disappointed for the second time he was here. All I could hear from his side of the table was umm's of approval. When he goes to a barbeque...place, he thinks about the meat - how it is cooked. And the smoked wings is what earns this place "first place". The sliders (I had the brisket and pulled pork) were also amazingly full of meat, so much so, that I couldn't finish even 2 sliders after an appetizer serving. The appetizer of nachos was not my favorite - too many weird items added to the nachos - fried pickles and barbecue beans. Another appetizer was fried pickles - just a reminder that the pickles are sweet - but actually it cuts the fried taste so that I enjoyed them more than fried dill pickles. My husband had the burnt ends - but they didn't really seem like burnt ends. Just doubly smoked. Two pluses for this restaurant: 1: plus for this restaurant is their contributions to the local community and their seriousness about being sustainable with solar energy and compostable carry-outs. 2. Portions are large and you can order individually from 1 wing to as many as you want. You can also order just one slider and a la carte everything! Which means you can be on a tight budget and still eat here! The way to get a 5 star rating from me is for Momma's is to get the sides up to the same level as the barbecue meat. The sides were just ordinary, nothing special.More

We were staying in Louisville for a wedding, and our hotel had some local favorite restaurants, so we decided to try this place out since it was close to our hotel. The portions were huge, and the pulled pork was so good. We loved the...big slabs of sweet cornbread. We were so full, but we got the bread pudding (made with donuts) with a bourbon/vanilla sauce and ice cream to go, and we ate it later. Delicious!! The only thing we weren't impressed with was the mac & cheese, but we were too full to eat it anyway. Will definitely go back next time we are in Louisville!More

Momma’s was a great stop in Louisville. Everything was so tasty. In fact I came back again before I left to have another. Be sure to stop at one of their locations.

We learned about Momma's BBQ from TripAdvisor reviews and we're not disappointed. We started off with wings for an appetizer and they were simply awesome. My advice is to avoid putting any sauce on them because the rub that they come with is simply delicious....After the appetizer, my wife and I each shared the pulled pork and brisket sandwiches. We thought that both were very tasty. For sides we tried the baked beans, coleslaw, and mac and cheese. We both really liked the coleslaw and I enjoyed the mac and cheese but I thought that the baked beans we're a little bit 'out of the can'. We thought the atmosphere was very comfortable and our server Renee was very pleasant and attentive. This is a great place for an inexpensive and enjoyable lunch or dinner.More

We have been to Mommas BBQ twice. The first time was very good (weekday), at least four stars. The second time we went (weekend) the food was not so good, the brisket was dry and the meatloaf was old. Not so sure it was worth...$45 + tip for three people.More

My boss and I are in town for work and we decided to try this place because he saw this restaurant featured on a cooking show. Based on all of the hype we had high expectations but were disappointed. The wings were very good and...the burnt ends of the brisket came in second. Nothing else was very good. The brisket was dry, the beef ribs which are supposed to be the 2nd best in the country were a little dry and packed flavor, and the sausage had a decent flavor but an odd, grainy texture. The cole slaw was salty and peppery, rather than sweet. And the fried pickles were sweet when I expected them to be salty. I'm glad I tried this place but won't be coming back again.More

Dry rubbed wings live up to the hype. My 9 year old daughter even loved them. Fries have same seasoning and were wonderful as well.
