New to the Louisville Foodie Scene, Biscuit Belly, touts itself as having “Damn Good Biscuits.” So, on my most recent trip to Louisville, I had to find out if they could live up to their slogan.
I was pleasantly surprised to find numerous vegetarian options on the menu. You can even substitute tofu, smoked or fried, for any protein listed! I ordered a biscuit sandwich called the Edgy Veggie and, because I gotta have heat, substituted jalapeno pimento cheese for Kenny’s Cheddar. Hubs also chose a vegetarian option, The Boomer, a biscuits and gravy dish topped with crispy mushrooms. For the kiddos I picked out the Basic Biscuit, a biscuit sandwich that was anything but basic, especially when combined with fried chicken ($2 add-on). Our meal total was about $40, which initially came as a shock, but when the food arrived at our table it was easy to see why we paid that amount for biscuits. They were huge–HUGEEEE!!! When the Basic Biscuits were placed in front of my kids, their eyes and smiles were equally as huge–HUGEEEE!!! Not only are the biscuits ginormous, but the food is made from scratch using high quality ingredients. Many of the ingredients are locally and regionally sourced from places, to name a few, like Kenny’s Farmhouse Cheese (Austin, KY) and Frondosa Farms (Simpsonville, KY).
All the food was so satifying and filling. We left with two boxes of leftovers, and joked about not eating for the rest of the day–ha!
You can get your belly full of “Damn Good Biscuits” every day, from 7:30 am to 3:00 pm, in the NuLu district.
