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.

Great Q, and sides. A little on the pricey side, but the quality is there.

First of all it's a CUTE place!  Totally remodeled from when it was Joe's older than dirt.  Nice patio out back with umbrellas.  Service was nice and the food was pretty good.  My two favorite things:1) "Bricks & Ivey" cocktail - OMG delish!2) The corn cob side - its GIANT (a meal in itself) and covered with a concoction of mayo, par ... read more

We ended off our Canadian's do BBQ trip of the South with The Red Barn Kitchen. If I could give it 30 stars I would. Couldn't have asked for a better finish to our Road Trip! The Chef was so friendly and even hooked us up! We tried the Brisket, pulled pork, smoked ribs, grilled corn, mac and cheese, corn bread of the day and to say ... read more

Best brisket I have had, and a good selection and range of sauces to try. Oh and you have to give the peanut butter pie a try as well. And the once a month all you can eat pig roast is well worth it... Just come hungry!

I have been to almost all of the Ole Restaurant Group restaurants, and I basically like them all, if not love.

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. It was tender, moist, and heavenly. I ordered the brisket chili nachos with brisket added and have no regrets. The combination of corn tortilla chips with pickled ... read more

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.

Nice but... $1.00 extra for a bun for your pulled pork...ughhh. Seems ridiculous. Pulled pork was good but everything is ala cart..EVERYTHING..a bun.

Eat here! My husband and I both enjoyed the appetizer (brisket chili nachos), beers, and our meals: He had 1/4 lb brisket sandwich and 10 boneless wings (on special $.50 each Wed and Thurs.) and I had the tacos and grits but I couldn't finish it. Total bill (4 beers included) was about $55 ... not bad. The bun with his 1/4 lb brisket ... read more

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.
Matt Martin via facebook.com - Aug 20, 2017
Well, we did not like the bbq sauces at all - everything is vinegar or mustard based. They did not have anything remotely sweet. BUT... We loved everything else.

It's so good we are giving it 10 stars between us. It takes a lot to bring us out past St Matthews but it's well worth the drive from in town. The meat was cooked perfectly with a deep smoke ring.

Best BBQ we've had in Louisville, hands down. Brisket was succulent, slightly tangy and tender. We were "warned" that the ribs are St. Louis-style, but the char and smokey flavor blew us a way and we may be converts; the entire rack was tender and crispy from tip to tip. Who knew that was even possible? Decor was a nod to upscale cou ... read more
