Thanks for the tips STX. I'll be in Louisville tomorrow, maybe I'll check one out if I can get my Dad to go somewhere besides O' Charleys.

Any time. There is even a Louisville style...if I can educate a few more folks out your way Missy, maybe you guys will be able to convince more nice restaurants to locate in PRP! Given the income in that area, it is ashame the only options are places like Applebee's in SW County.

Try looking to LouisvilleHotBytes.com and their forum. The forum is a true jewel. I travel often and have never seen a city this size with such a large foodie community and their own very active web board.

Anyone know anything about Bonnie and Clyde's on Dixie? I haven't been in YEARS and wonder if it is still good. We also have a couple Bearnos and a Wicks as far as Pizza goes. I have noticed that around here fried chicken, steak and buffets are most popular as far as restaurants. I would LOVE a Chic-fil-A for a fast food and something Indian for sit down myself.

I didn't know there were so many Chicago expats living in Lexington! Yeah...unless you've had Chicago style pizza and dogs, you don't know, and no chain can replicate that, unless it started as a mom and pop deal in Chi town and retained it's quality. You just gotta make the drive or flight back home to get the real deal....unless a bunch of us band together to open a joint. And yeah....vienna franks RULE!!

Of course! Louisville gains more residents from Chicago and Cleveland than any other cities, so much of those two cities culinary favorites thrive here. Try Lonnnie's best taste of chicago in St Matthews first. It really is as good as almost any Chicago stand (I am partial to the craziness at Weinerville Circle though!!!). This review is 5 years old but still accurate:

Robin Garr's Louisville Restaurant Guide / Lonnie's Best Taste of Chicago


Since then Binky's has closed and there are many new dog players on the field. KC's taste of Chicago is good too.

I had a pizza from Donato's again tonight; thin crispy crust cut in squares, just like in the old neighborhood. Sauce was tasty with a bite and the cheese and sausage used were OK. Not bad, not bad at all. Best pizza I've had in Lexington.

I will have to try Donatos next time I am in Lexington.
