Momma's is hit and miss. Can be delish or can be ordinary. Hurstbourne Ln always ordinary. When hit the brisket is awesome. Personally I think River Rd BBQ has the best brisket in the area. It's not sliced thin Texas style though.

Read last week that Hillbilly Tea closed. I WTF'd and then she'd a tear or two. Stupid bridge construction.

RE: Louisville Dining
I like Louvino, but thought it was a bit on the pricey side for the offerings. They also need to do something about their bar... beer selection was no bueno on my visit, a small pour, and not nearly cold enough.

If you haven't been to mesh yet, you should go. It's actually an Indy creation, but opened on Brownsboro Road about 3 months ago. The Amish Farms Chicken is pretty spectacular.

It's on the list. Give Anoosh Bistro a try. He has had a lot of top restaurants in the Ville. He had been hired by Mesh but had A falling out about three months before opening.

That's the place that filled the old Watterson's building, right? It's right by my daughter's preschool... wondered if it was any good.

RE: Louisville Dining
Took the fam to dinner at St. Charles Exchange Fri. night, ten of us. Complete disaster. I knew things were bad from the beginning. Waitress was completely incompetent. Spoke to the manager a couple of times during the meal. Before the check came I told the manager that I was only paying for 1/2 the food but all the alcohol (we drink a lot), they comped the food. Probably $375-400 for 8 adults and 1 kid and an infant. Appreciated it but won't go back. Food was OK, several dishes lacked salt.

Hah, they charge $100 for a shot of Pappy 23. I lived in Vegas and am no stranger to paying a little coin for ambiance and other bullshit, but god damn. Good for them I guess, seller's market, etc... If the Van Winkle folks would stop making the 23 year and just stick to 15 and 20 for that brand, I think it'd be better for everyone. I own a bottle of pappy (#humblebrag) but is any bourbon truly worth $100 a shot?

Have you all tried the Dairy Queen at 6th and Winkler though? Hand crafted burgers. I recommend what the chef calls the "Flamethrower" burger with his special sauce. Numerous in-house crafted sodas on tap (With free refills!).

They really aren't bad for a fast food burger. Louisville, however, is probably the best burger city in the US.

Maybe variety of burger joints, but Bru in Indianapolis trumps anything we have here.

You think? Have one here in Lex, I think Grind is way better as far as the burg, Bru is a helluva lot more convivial. You must be into ambiance. ?

RE: Louisville Dining
I haven't tried Grind, so may need to take a look. I do think the fare at Bru is superior to Game, which I thought was our flagship local burger place.

Ambiance doesn't matter so much, but I will acknowledge that my opinion may be clouded by the fact that Bru in Indy has 3 Floyd's on tap.

RE: Louisville Dining
No wild game, but I think they do a better job garnishing their burgers than Game does. If Game would put one more note in their Elk, Kangaroo, or other burgers with an aioli, house-made ketchup... SOMETHING. Also (and this is getting nitpicky for a place I've been more than any other restaurant in the past 6 months), I don't find Game to be as consistent from one visit to the next. One time the burger is properly patted out and cooked to fit the bun; next time they've thrown a Kangaroo meatball on a comically oversized bun.

Love both places, don't get me wrong. I just give a slight nod to Bru.

Rodeo Goat in Ft Worth, if you're ever in the Dallas area. We go out of our way on airport treks to get a burger there. The burger at Perini's Steakhouse near Abilene is top 5 too but I doubt anyone would ever be in that area so you'll have to take my word for it.

RE: Louisville Dining
Wild game is the draw for me and I'd say most for Game. Terrific beer selection. But aside from that and wild game, it doesn't set itself apart from Mussel and Burger bar, etc.Bbut also maybe build your own if you've been going off chef recommendation burgers or vice versa.

Caramelized onions, bleu cheese and Dijon are my go to toppings. For the bleu love Gorgonzola Dolce or Kenny's Bleu Gouda. No lettuce, tomato, pickles or mayo. No fried stuff. 50/50 sirloin/chuck. I've been wanting to grind my own.

Swiss, cajun seasoning, grilled onions, and A1. If any of you go to Home Run Burger, try it and thank me later.

At home, we tend to try to be healthier and eat turkey burgers. Admittedly an acquired taste, but I enjoy a good turkey burger if it isn't overcooked (gotta be careful with the lean meat).

Turkey burgers are OK, especially like them done Asian with a little soy sesame slaw aboard. If you've never made turkey burgers don't buy ground breast, buy ground turkey.

RE: Louisville Dining
I make a damn good burger my own way. Friends and family request them regularly. I mix my seasonings, sauces and binding agent all together almost like you would a meatloaf. Like ground meat, tony chacheres, sea salt and cracked pepper, hot sauce/jalapeƱo juice, BBQ, ranch and it will be a really wet moist mix and add just enough finely crushed crackers, cheez-it's or whatever to make it patty up good. I swear it's good.

Also I'm out of ground venison but I have steaks left. Just been waiting til my fishing slowed down to grind my own too.

RE: Louisville Dining
I've always used beef fat to add to the grind however recently I've heard it's better with pork fat added. The reason is slipping my mind right now. But it's coming from my wild game and do-it yourself self-sufficient mentor and a personal hero of mine, Steven Rinella. I take his word as gospel. I'm actually going to ask him why.

I've tinkered with all sorts of burgers. Add butter, bacon fat, Worcestershire, Dijon, onion juice, Franks..... However since I went to 50/50 chuck/sirloin I quit adding anything. It is possible they may need a bit of fat but I'm not sure. Salt liberally about 15 mins before cooking.
