Well, since retirement, I have been spending time with my daughter and we have had some real experiences. I kept thinking that I should let people know about these little local gems that we are finding. I do book reviews then surely I could expand that to other things…..so my rattling begins…..
The absolute perfect example of a local gem is Susie Q’s in Bardstown, Kentucky. Don’t let the simple and quaint overtones fool you. This place delivers class, quality and heavenly flavors on a plate (with a side order of homemade potato chips.) Whether your taste is for the down home style pot roast or the original style Ruben, you will not be disappointed.
I opted for the chicken salad on a croissant, homemade, of course. It was divine, with a slightly sweet after taste and a good crunch of pickle and fresh breast of chicken. Simple and delightful.
Paula, chose the Ruben, the thinly sliced corned-beef was perfect with the homemade sauce. On marbled rye bread it was a work of art. (Per Paula)
Now to my daughter Desiree, who chose the slaw burger and may never stop talking about it. It was a juicy (yes, you could see the juice running from it) 1/4 lb Angus burger loaded with their own homemade slaw that was made with lettuce, and that, by the moans emanating from Desi, was obviously delicious.
We are already planning a quick return to try out the meatloaf and the desserts (Oh, did I mention 3-4″ high homemade apple pie with ice cream and caramel, and homemade coconut, chocolate, and lemon meringue pies….shall I go on…). Great food at a great price and friendly service!
