Thornberry's is a long established Louisville landmark. Close to Churchill Downs, it is a locals' pick for box lunches for Oaks Day, Derby Day, and Breeder's Cup races. They will make a sandwich any way you want it - and are very generous with the meat. But the side dishes are what really shine including the not to be missed twice baked potato salad and macaroni salad. No bake cookies are my pick for dessert.
For birthdays, pass on those commercial cakes and get an inexpensive top of the line quality, taste cake here. With a picture, this deli can create anything.
