Welcome to my webpage. Here you will find some ideas on where to eat in the Louisville area. This list is by no means comprehesive nor does it list everywhere I have been. So, if you don't see a particular restaurant, please let me know.

For Restaurant Rating Explanation, click here: RATINGS

You will notice a lot of 4 "star" eatery's and some with a 3 rating, but not many with a 2 or a 1. I felt like I should not
waste your time with the 1’s or 2’s.

New Eateries:  Updates 7-19-2008

  Royal India -  This is now my favorite Indian restaurant. They have a lunch buffet, excellent vegetarian selections and very good service. Ordering off the menu is equally good. A pleasant place to dine healthy. It is located a couple of doors down from Havana Rumba, across the street form the Walmart Neighborhood store on Thierman Lane.  A must eat place.

  Queen of Sheba -  This interesting place serve Ethiopian food - mostly stews called "wots" - chicken, lamb, beef. They can be served very spicy if you wish. They use berbere, which is a mixture of:  chile peppers, ginger, cloves, coriander, allspice and other spices and herbs. The Sega Wot, a very spicy beef stew is amazing. You pick up the food with the special bread they give you - Injera. Forks and spoons are available upon request. It is located across from Bowman Field in the old Mazzoni's location.  Do not let this place go out of business!

    Havana Rumba - A wonderful Cuban eatery off Shelbyville Rd. a few doors down from Del Frisco's. A few must haves are the Mojito's - a rum/lime adult beverage with a sprig of mint, and the Masas de Puerco - morsels of  marinated fried pork. The Chef,  Fernando Martinez, does a wonderful job. But he now has other responsibilities, as they have recently opened Mojito's.

      Mojito's - This spin off of Havana Rumba is located in Holiday Manor Shopping Center off Brownsboro Rd. Like its sibling, the food is well done with excellent service. It has only been open 3 weeks, but the staff make it look like it has been open for years. Be prepared to wait as it is already quite busy.

       Palermo Viejo - In keeping with the Latin theme, I want to mention Palermo's. This Argentine eatery has been open since 2001 and I am upset that I have not tried this sooner. The Chef, Federico Elbl,  provides a family atmosphere along with a wonderful collection of grilled meats. My favorite dish is the Parrillada de Bifes, which has  Ribeye, NY strip, flank, and house-made chorizo served on a bed of french fries and drizzled with chimichurri sauce. A meat lovers paradise. But don't fret if you are Vegetarian, as my wife found some great non-meat entrees. This is located on Bardstown Rd.

Let's talk Pizza. Here is a small list of some of my favorite places.

     Spinelli's - If you like thin crust, New York Style, or in this case Philly Style, then this is for you. Large pie with foldable crust without the block o' cheese makes this my favorite pizzeria in Louisville. It is located on Baxter Ave. near Phoenix Hill Tavern and has a car inside that you can sit and be served in. They also make their own cannolli's. They are adding a new store off Westport Rd. on Goosecreek.  This is a keeper.

         Old Chicago Pizza - While this is a chain located at Hurstbourne and Taylorsville Rd. it still has a good pizza(deep dish as well as thin crust) as well as calzones. These are supplemented with an extensive beer list. A great place to go after work or on the weekends.

          Bearno's - There are several of these franchises out there, but I will only go to one - the store on Taylorsville Rd. across from Bowman's Field - this was the original and is still in the hands of the family that started the business. Excellent breadsticks(thin crust, not Olive Garden style) with your choice of butter or marinara sauce, along with good quality pizza with plenty of toppings.

I will try to keep this updated.
