For a good, fast food burger, try Back Yard Burgers off Blankenbaker. Not exactly gourmet, but what the heck!

I usually don't like to eat out, but I make an exception when visiting Louisville. Unfortunatly many of the places I'd want to stop at aren't open when I'm out and about (usually during the day on Saturdays).

So far my favorites have been two new places, Blind Pig and Hillbilly Tea. Blind Pig has garnered national attention so I figure y'all know about it already. Hillbilly Tea might not be that well known....but it has a great breakfast & lunch menu and its open on weekends.

The place I'd like to try but havnt' yet is Blue Dog over on Frankfort Avenue.

Another place on Frankfort, but in Clifton, is that Cafe Classico, near where Frankfort crosses the railroad. This is quite good, more a European style cafe/bistro. Excellent coffe imported from Austria, I think (Meinl), yet the food is pretty good too, from what I recall.

Great choices. Last time I was in town I was really impressed by Hillbilly Tea. There is a new place called Mozz garnering alot of attention too. Last I heard, there are at least 5 restaurants opening in downtown alone in the nest few months.

My two favorites downtown are probably 732 Social and Proof. In the Highlands, my favorites are Seviche and Palermo Viejo.

In Clifton and Crescent Hill, I enjoy Volare and and Varanese.

In St Matthews, I enjoy Del Frisco's and Havana Rumba.

In Old Louisville, I adore 610 Magnolia, and Granville Inn for burgers.

In Beechmont, I like Annie Cafe and Vietnam Kitchen.

Wow, it was tough picking only two restaurants in every neighborhood. I could go on and on and on....even with other areas that are not so "hip" and well known.

Like New Albany, IN, and Bank Street Brewhouse and La Rosita.

While certainly not a gourmet $ 50.00 entre' place, my wife and our friends gather as the Friscelli's Fried Friday Friends to have some laughs, drink a beer and enjoy a fine deli meal. Tonight I had the five meat Sicilian pizza. It's a genuine real deal. I've got lunch for tomorrow and more.

It's Friscelli's in Crestwood.

Irish Rover and Bristol are probably my favorites.

Louisville does a million different nice restaurants to choose from. The restaurants are one of my favorite things about the city.

La Rosita is one of the best Mexican restaurants I've ever been to. Haven't been there since they switched to the new downtown location a few months back. Need to do that.

I'm a student so I'm usually on a tight budget. Taking that into consideration, I LOVE Oishii Sushi. I have never been somewhere that served sushi at prices like that. Cafe Mimosa is a favorite too. Try the lemongrass chicken, my personal favorite. You can probably tell I like Asian food. (:

Another one I wanna add is Logan's roadhouse near Shively. I had some steak, ribs, fries, baked apples all for under $20. You also get all the free peanuts and rolls you want while you wait. Did I mention the waitresses are cute?
