Anne Marie's Bacon Bar

*Updated 2/19/217: CLOSED*
Bacon lovers, this is for you!  At this J-town restaurant, the pork and bacon take center stage and your diet takes a back seat. It is a lovely addition to the Louisville's food scene offering delicious inventive dishes as well as old favorites.  Expect to see bacon infused in most dishes.

Inside the large but sparsely decorated restaurant
The menu includes 5 types of sandwiches and southern dishes like fried catfish, fried chicken, meatloaf, and pork chop. The prices are reasonable, as most entrees are between $10 - $14.

Order the bacon wrapped jalapeƱo poppers at your own risk, they're very spicy! The jalapeƱos were filled with cream cheese, wrapped in bacon then battered and fried. Delicious when dipped in the bacon ranch sauce.

You can build your own BLT, fresh and delicious and it comes with a side of great seasoned fries.

 My pork chop was smokey, tender and juicy, served on top of an apple, asparagus and potato hash. It was light, fresh and made me wonder what other creative flair the chef added to other dishes on the menu.

Smoked bone-in pork chop
The restaurant is a bit dark at night, but look for Moby Dick on Taylorsville Road, a block before Watterson Trail.  The restaurant sits behind the Moby Dick's parking lot. It's busy on the weekend so expect a little wait.
