Watch your step when you duck into this lower-level lunch spot: Its cozy dining rooms are crammed with antiques from Head House Antiques and Uniques, which is located upstairs. Try the Benedictine, bread pudding with bourbon sauce or homemade soups.
The ceramic pig outside signals the great pork barbecue inside. A smoked-meat empire in the making and Louisville favorite since 1988, Mark’s barbecue chicken, pork, and spicy mustard-based sauce keep it on the carnivore club’s frequent-visit list. Also, try the onion straws and fried corn.
Not to be confused with Impellizeri’s Pizza, this Middletown restaurant also serves original and deep-dish pizzas with your choice of toppings. Tony Impellizeri’s also offers sub sandwiches and pasta dishes.
