Always a great bbq place and super accommodating and nice staff. The Mac and cheese is delicious and I love that they never make you feel rushed no matter how busy they are.

I have to give Red Barn Kitchen 5 stars because there wasn't one dish I did not enjoy. My group of co-workers visited on a beautiful night and sat on the patio; however, the indoor facility has a good deal of seating and is decorated in upscale farmhouse items.We each started with a drink, several bourbon drinks. I enjoyed 2 old fash ... read more

Pretty good! The brisket nachos were amazing. The regular size was small for there to be a “petite” sized portion as well. Corn on the cob was delicious, baked beans were too smokey. I wasn’t impressed with the sauces though.

Went to RBK with a large group of friends. We all had a little bit of everything from the menu!  Everything was delicious.  The cornbread waffles were a hit!!  Another raved about dish was the brisket and the fried chicken!  This place is a definitely place to try.  The atmosphere was great though the temp inside was a bit too warm. ... read more

I LOVED IT! Had the sweet tea marinated southern fried chicken and my wife had the smoked brisket. I need people to get out of their comfort zone and give it a shot. You will be glad you did!

I went to RBK with a group of friends last night and really enjoyed it. The space is well-done and has a great feel for upscale barbecue. It was a little too cold to use the patio area and play cornhole, but that space looked great for a group outing - noted for next summer!I ordered the RBK tacos - pulled pork tacos with slaw, cream ... read more

I wasn't impressed with Red Barn. I heard many great things and I thought it had a lot of potential. I really liked the vibe and atmosphere of the place. Our server was nice but service was slow.

I was a 1st time customer. Service & atmosphere was great! Ribs had fantastic smoky flavor but we're a little tough. Server warned us they were not "fall off the bone" ribs but I ordered them anyway. My husband had chicken & waffles that came with 4 pieces of chicken!! All in all it was a good experience. I would go again.

I don't think we could have had a better dining experience on Saturday morning in Louisville. Excellent staff who serve awesome food with enthusiasm & passion.

Had lunch with a friend recently and the smoked wings and brisket/pork tacos were outstanding. We sat outside and soaked up some vitamin D, while enjoying a couple of Gumball Heads.

The best fried chicken ever! Meaty, juicy, and crispy. It comes with a sweet spicy dipping sauce and pickled onions on the side. Perfection!

There were 4 people in our party so we all ordered something different to allow us to sample. Fried chicken, brisket, pulled pork sandwich, and pork tacos with varying sides....all VERY scrumptious. And the Mac & Cheese...no words can describe how yummy it was. You better come hungry! We will definitely be back.

We discovered this hidden little gem by word of mouth. If you like corn on the cobb, they have the best!!  The menu didn't offer as much variety as I had hoped.

First time eating there. Table has to wiped down. Missing all utensils. Sweet tea was not sweet at all. But things better. Cold beverages finally. Wife ate the chicken which was excellent. I had the famous burger with fried green tomato and sweet potato fries. started out with oh no but finished very good. I'll go back.

I'm a Kansas City barbecue snob so I'm always skeptical when we venture to new barbecue restaurants. Red Barn Kitchen is the real deal. The bark on the brisket was perfect.

4 months of nearly daily visits to RBK, and I am finally getting around to reviewing.  You will not find better bbq and more importantly service in Louisville. Everything on the menu is top notch. Smoked wings, Mac & Cheese, ribs, and brisket are always great. Better than the food are the employees! They keep me coming back everyday.

If you like unpretentious presentation and artful quality -- find Red Barn Kitchen asap. Every dish has its Kentucky roots firmly planted, and then the chef adds a special something.

Awesome Food and service. I do not typically choose fried chicken from a menu but the RBK fried chicken is out of this world AWESOME. It is a go-to when I am there. The fried apple pies with bourbon ice cream are a perfect end to a meal. You will not leave disappointed with anything on the menu.
