Barbecue and Bourbon on Main

Barbeque and Bourbon on Main

Slow-smoked meats and Kentucky whiskey feel at home in the honky-tonk environs of this casual new Speedway haunt. Launched by the owner of a Memphis-style catering business (Bud’s Smokin’ BBQ), the colorful joint focuses on spice-rubbed pork ribs, brisket, and pulled meats that arrive at the table sauceless in their paper-lined baskets. Squirt bottles of housemade li-quid fire allow for DIY seasoning in sweet or hot. Sides are mostly starchy, cheesy, and clearly made from scratch. Don’t miss the fried cabbage loaded with bits of pork or the thin-cut onion rings.
