Best Bite: Manny & Merle

Manny & Merle's Hot Chicken!

Are you looking for great southern inspired cuisine in a Honky-Tonk setting?  If so, then head downtown to Manny & Merle in the Whiskey Row district of Louisville. Try this dish, Manny & Merle's Hot Chicken! This quarter sized piece is coated with a house-made hot sauce and fried in a

pressure cooker, which creates a crispy outside and a tender, juicy inside.

Here's a popular starter, the Bacon Picks shown here with their house-made bourbon maple sauce.  A great salty/sweet combination.  If you love bacon, this is a must have!

Their guacamole is equally as good. If you're not sure which option to choose from, select all three and share! The Roasted Corn Poblano and Grilled Pineapple are a delicious twist of a traditional guacamole favorite.

Be sure to check out Manny & Merle's Tuesday-Friday lunch special menu section (11 am - 2 pm only) for a great value.  See selected menu items.  Here is my favorite, the 1/2 KY Kale Salad with the Green Chili Pork Taco.

Live music is available Wednesday - Saturday evenings, with Wednesday being open mic night.  Thursday - Saturday evenings local and national bands hit the stage inside the restaurant. Check the website for a list of current acts.

For the summertime, outdoor seating is also available.  A sectioned off area from the side of the building. A true downtown feel.
