|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
waste your time with the 1’s or 2’s.
New Eateries: Updates
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 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
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.
