Bar-B-Q & Catering Co. has established itself as a true Kentucky original, serving the Greater
Louisville area with our signature pit-smoked barbeque for more than 20
years. Our business has been built on a
reputation for premium quality, slow-cooked barbeque meats and
made-from-scratch side dishes, desserts, and sauces, all served with a generous
helping of "down-home" service
for each of our customers- or, as we like to call them, our family.
foundations of our signature "Bootleg-style" offerings are rooted in
old-fashioned cooking techniques and "from the farm" recipes handed
down through the generations, drawing heavily from Kentucky's rich tradition of smoked &
cured meats and homestyle country cooking.
In addition to our original Kentucky-bred take on classic barbeque fare,
we have drawn influences from across the region. We looked as far as Virginia, the Carolinas, Louisiana, and Texas to find inspiration for some of our
more unique dishes and sauces to appeal to even the most discerning Southern palate.
reputation for delicately-smoked lean and tender barbeque and farm-fresh,
country-style "fixins" has spread, Bootleg Bar-B-Q has grown from a small
outpost in southeastern Jefferson County to a multi-store restaurant operation
providing a variety of dine-in or carry-out options, as well as a full suite of
catering services to accommodate the needs of individual, institutional, and
commercial customers, regardless of size. We have been recognized by locals, visitors,
young and old as a "must have" example of authentic Kentucky barbeque that's "So
Good It Oughta Be Illegal!"
