After spending six years perfecting their Nashville hot chicken recipe. Jon, Justin and Chris decided to open Louie’s.

Not only do they do hot chicken right, they are masters on the smoker. Smoking pounds of brisket, pork and wings daily.

Famous Hot Chicken & Barbecue

“Drove all the way from Lexington to give this a try! We had the chicken tenders that were extra hot, corn on the cob, potato salad and macaroni and cheese. Potato salad had a very dominant garlic taste that I enjoyed. The macaroni and cheese was amazing, the corn on the cob had a special taste from where it was grilled and the hot chicken was on point! Very great place to eat if you’re in Louisville!

“Just stopped in for the first time and everything was fresh and hot! Great food and definitely coming back very soon. The white sauce and Louie’s sauce will change the way you sauce!!

Louie’s has quickly become my favorite chicken joint in town. The hot tenders with some ranch and some white sauce is perfect. Fire your head up chowin’ down on the tenders with a sauce that isn’t a dairy base and has some heat (the white is perfect for it). When you think you’ve had enough heat, dip it in some ranch and get cooled down for a bit. Trust me, it’s spicy Heaven. Also, their corn on the cob is so good.

So…..I felt like I knew I was gonna give this place 5 stars before I even came here. Louie’s is just a blessing to Louisville….. If anyone has ever heard me talk about food they know that I rave over hot chicken. I will have hot chicken served at my wedding and funeral. It’s just my thing. I’ve had good chicken, I’ve had bad chicken, and I’ve had REALLY good chicken. So, where does Louie’s stand? You guessed it, REALLY good.
