    One of the best places we went in Louisville. The food is incredible, the drinks are well crafted and the staff is super friendly and knowledgeable! Bartenders know their craft!!

    This Kentucky Girl loved the Wilbur Sundae!! The perfect mix of great vanilla ice cream, bourbon caramel, salty, smokey bacon and cinnamon pork rinds. All topped with a bourbon soaked cherry. Tuners

    Great BBQ spot with good drinks and large portions. Share the heap'n chips with your BFF Jill, grab some brisket tacos, perhaps enjoy some ribs or a fried oyster po boy. The Docta will see you now.

    Best BBQ in town. Don't sweat the guy with the squirrelly hat taking names up front. He's been a douche to me or my friends on a number of occasions. Putting up with his attitude is worth the food.

    Oysters were outstanding. Lots of varieties to chose from. Smoked wings are amazing. And I can't recommend the Lima beans enuf! Yes!! Lima beans.

    One of the newest stops on the Urban Bourbon Trail, be sure and grab your passport from the server and ask for one of their specialty bourbon flights.

    Pulled pork, Mac, and greens were all ridiculous. We bought our 8 month old, but the staff was very accommodating. Place is HUGE. Delicious BBQ.

    Catfish on Catfish platter was good. Food is very hot. Fried okra was delicious. Portion sizes for the "sides" are huge. Hushpuppies are very salty. Decent prices. Waitress was a little slow.

    On the other hand, the Lima beans are literally the best I've ever had. Get them even if you don't like Lima beans.
