Very good food, good selection of drinks. The menu is fun and quirky (a bacon brownie?????). The food we tried was amazing (pork belly BLT, pulled pork sandwich, and some garlic fries). The garlic fries had rosemary on them... interesting combination but delicious. The BBQ sauce (the juice) was amazing.

The wait was horrendous though. An hour and a half. (We were told it would be only a half hour). So... if we were told it would be an hour and a half that's one thing, but we told a half hour, then another 15 minutes, then a half hour.... it was crazy. But the staff was super friendly.

Wow. I'd consider driving back down to Louisville just to go eat here again. Based on the recommendation of another reviewer I tried the baked beans and the lamb ribs and they were both delicious. Ridiculously delicious. I also tried the heirloom potato salad. Both the salad and the beans had a little "kick" which was surprising at first but definitely enhanced the flavor. They have some many other selections on the menu that I wish I was able to try--elk and venison burgers, plenty of sandwiches (duck, brisket, etc.), duck fat fries, shrimp and grits.

You might want to get there early because it definitely gets crowded (a good sign that the locals LOVE to eat here).

Gourmet bar food left us full and satisfied! The burgers and fries were unique and awesome. The bacon brownie for dessert was absolutely delectable. Cool atmosphere and friendly staff. This restaurant was definitely the highlight of our trip - only wish we had it for our neighborhood bar.

Try the pork belly baked beans with the Lamb Ribs. Just like me you will be coming back again, and again, and again......

You definitely will not think this could be the best restaurant in Louisville by driving by, but do not be mislead by this basement bar. This is the best food I have ever eaten at unbelievably reasonable prices. We had the ribs, sliders, elk burger, and truffle fries and they were all phenomenal! You must eat here!
