Ernesto’s

I used to consider myself a Mexican food snob.  Having lived in Phoenix briefly in the late 90’s, I think I know Mexican food. Way back when, I grew up on Chi-Chi’s and the original Tumbleweed (before it became a chain and started to go wrong).  Before I started eating better and healthier, I would have Mexican food at least twice a week.  You name it, I ate it-at least once.

Shiraz

Editor’s Note: Everyone please put your hands together for our new LouisvilleLunch.com blogger, Molly! She answered the call for lunch review bloggers and after looking at her site, we knew she would fit right in here. Maybe even teach us a trick or two about writing. So, take it away, Molly! Welcome aboard!

I have to admit as my first review for LouisvilleLunch.com-I played it safe.  I have been to the Shiraz on Hurstbourne before, but this was a new adventure out to the location off English Station Road.  It is a little off the corporate beaten path, but people who work in the Blankenbaker cooridor are better off heading this way for lunch than Hurstbourne Parkway.

Look out, Louisville…Sammy’s back!

Hey ev’ryone…remember me? I’m Sammy, Louisville’s favorite lunch review blogger.

Anyway, after some job changes, and other stuff, I’ve decided to come back and start reviewing my lunch spots again. With this recession and all, I’ve kinda been eating badly (i.e. fast food). And since my M.O. here has always been to not review chains and fast food, I’ve been kinda quiet. Plus, everyone pretty much knows what those places taste like. Those chains spend millions of dollars making sure that it’s the same junk in Louisville as it is in Sante Fe.

There have been some exciting and sad changes in the Louisville restaurant scene since I’ve been gone…

  • Beloved restaurants that have closed:
    • Browning’s (which is supposed to be re-opening very soon…YAY!)
    • Park Place
    • Kaelin’s (birthplace of the cheeseburger)
    • Oak Street Pizza
    • Market on Market
    • Primo
  • And some new faces that I’m ready to try out:
    • Bunz (on Baxter Ave. next to Wick’s – Formerly Omar’s Gyros)
    • Boombozz Pizza & Tap House (renovation and expansion of the Highlands’ location
    • The new Quill’s Coffee location (on Baxter)
    • Jimmy John’s popping up on every corner
    • KENTUCKY GRILLED CHICKEN!!!

So, I’m happy to be back and I’ll try to blog a bit more frequently. As long as people keep readin’…
