Kaelin’s is now Mulligan’s Pub and Grill

Driving by the old place known as Kaelin’s (birthplace of the cheeseburger), I noticed some people sitting out on the patio eating. I got excited thinking the rumors of renovations were true. Maybe they were true, but now the restaurant on the corner of Speed Ave. and Newburg Road is now known as “Mulligan’s Pub and Grill”. Stay tuned while we check it out.

Cumberland Brewery

My sister and I had our dinner at Cumberland Brews early on a Friday evening. We opted to sit inside and in the narrow downstairs area. After we were seated all of the tables were filled and it felt busy but never chaotic. […]

Wick’s Pizza

Wick’s is one of those places that almost doesn’t need a review. You’ve more than likely been there before, and either really love it or not so much. Me? I love it. My wife thinks they put too much cheese on their pizza. There is no such thing as too much cheese on a pizza in my humble opinion. That’s like saying there’s too much wet in this water. After the jump, read on about how delicious Wick’s Pizza is… […]

Twig and Leaf

Sorry I’ve been so hard to find lately, folks. I’m vowing to get back to writing reviews again.

Jam, Valentino and I had some errands to run the other day, and just couldn’t decide where to eat lunch. So, I just kept driving south on Bardstown Road, and we just couldn’t put our finger on where to go. That’s when the awesome vintage neon sign caught our hungry eyes (what?).

J. Gumbo’s

Although this is technically a chain restaurant (and we don’t review chains here…we all know what they taste like), this place (formerly Gumbo-a-Go-Go) started here and it’s still kinda small, unlike the taste and portions of this cajun fast-casual restaurant.

Derby City Dogs

I really like hot dogs. There…I said it. But not the type that most people think of…made of 3 different types of animals, of parts that you don’t want to know about. What I like is All-beef hot dogs. Kosher. Delish.

Derby City Dogs is right in the heart of the Highlands. You really couldn’t ask for a better location. It reminds me of something that would be in New York City: just a window where you place your order, on the sidewalk. There’s a nice bar that you can get out of the way to enjoy your dog. The day Jam and I went, there was quite a line formed, almost blocking the sidewalk traffic, which on the corner of Baxter Ave. and Highland Ave., there’s quite a lot. […]

City Café

As much as it pains me to say this, I’ve never been a big fan of this “Keep Louisville Weird”, WFPK-supporting restaurant. It’s always just been kinda “meh” everytime I’ve been there. I typically get the Club, and while good, it’s just a Club (no offense!). The times, they are a-changing, folks. My last visit made me want to write a ravin’ review… […]

Side Street Grill * Pizza * Pub (Formerly: Deli at Douglass Loop)

Located on Dundee Road on the Douglass Loop in the Highlands, the Deli has had a kind of identity crisis. My wife and I went to this place opening week a couple years (?) ago. It’s right in our neighborhood, and we were excited to have a nice coffee shop/restaurant/waterin’ hole nearby. Within those couple of years, they’ve acquired a liquor license (beer only), gotten rid of the espresso drinks (I imagine it’s hard to compete with the 800 Lb. Gorilla that is Heine Brothers), and are now refocusing their efforts once again. With the name “Deli”, people mostly thought of it as just a place with a few sandwiches, but owner Trent Pehlke is trying to get the word out about how much more this little gem of a restaurant really is. They have recently rebranded themselves as “Side Street Grill * Pizza * Pub”, which I think will bring more people in the door to experience this diverse menu. […]

O’Shea’s Irish Pub – Irish Week!

Valentino and I decided to try this popular nightlife spot out for lunch. Located in the “Irish” district of Baxter Ave., this is probably the first of the Irish pubs in the neighborhood (50 years!), and frankly one of the best fish sandwiches this side of Dublin (and it’s cellar).
