Kentucky gets a lot of credit for having the best fried chicken around, but Louisville has a bustling barbecue scene that needs to be checked out. There is a lot to like about the barbecue in this town, which is one of the reasons I wanted to visit it. The downtown scene in Louisville is popular, and there is a lot to do there. Along that downtown scene are a lot of live music and barbecue spots, which make the trip well worth it.
If you've been wanting to enjoy live music and barbecue, then you can't go wrong going here. But let's face it, the reason you are reading this is because you want to have some delicious barbecue. Louisville, Kentucky has some of the most delicious barbecue places around. I was surprised by how good they were. Here are a few spots that we decided to try out when we were here in town. Between the excellent flavor and the one of a kind customer service, you can't go wrong.

Feast BBQ lives up to its name, as you will definitely feast when you get here. The establishment serves up the standard barbecue fare, and then some options that you might not have seen before. Have you ever had a BBQ taco before? Probably not, but that is one of the special menu items being served here. The menu also has other great items, such as the barbecued beef tips, the brisket and the grilled chicken.
The entire menu is well appointed, and there are plenty of delicious side dishes to choose from. The mashed potatoes were better than I expected, and that made me satisfied. You think mashed potatoes are a simple dish, but they aren't, and when you make homemade mashed potatoes, it's not an easy task. The entire meal went together perfectly, and all the food was delicious and well prepared. I definitely recommend coming to Feast BBQ if you are in the area and want some great BBQ.

I always have to support local firefighters, so when I saw the name of this barbecue joint, I had to check it out. FDKY BBQ is a low-key establishment serving some of the best barbecue in the area. Whether you want a great piece of grilled chicken or a brisket, you will find it here. There is no short order when it comes to all the menu options, and there are also daily specials. The place is lively, and the staff is ready to assist you in finding the dish you love.
The barbecue beef tips are delicious and grilled to perfection, where they will be dry and overcooked. The grilled chicken is also delicious and the meat is falling off of the bone, but what really sets it apart is the delicious sauce. The original side dishes also make the meals complete with a sense of home cooking and great flavor. If you are in the Louisville area and want some great barbecue, then you can't go wrong here.
