This was not the first place that I had picked in Louisville as part of my bbq pilgrimage, but it is the first one that we stumbled upon so we went ahead and dined here. I got their brisket while others got the pork sandwiches....More

We were passing through the Louisville area, wanted barbeque, and somehow managed to NOT find any of the really interesting restaurants online. This one is in a strip mall and has several spots reserved for carry out. They do have daily specials. I got the...More

The best chicken I have tasted. The sauces are great (of course the Georgia sauce is m favorite---- since I am from GA) The green beans tasted like my grandmother's. The staff (especially the cook) was very friendly.

Ther is no there there. It tastes like a decent chain BBQ with nothing special to recomment it. Most chains (with he exception of Lucille's in Phoenix Az) just don't seem to have anything other than an ordinary meat with ordinary sauces.
