Mi Viejo

Reviewed By J L

We went because of the reviews here on TripAdvisor. BUT. We ordered 2 chimichanga platters, one with soft tortilla s. The beef in the beef chimi was cut up into tiny cubes (not shredded). My husband liked the taste, I thought the beef was dry and tasteless. The meat in my chicken chimi was tasty though half of one of the halves had no meat. Guacamole was bland. Tamale was made fresh and I think heated in the microwave to melt the cheese which made the ends too crispy. Again, disappointingly bland. Flan was good! My husband did miss the whipped cream & cherry most places put on it. (I didn't). There was dried urine on toilet seat. Service was good.

Reviewed By waynemasters - Pittsburgh, PA

We had an overnight stay in town and having lived in Louisville for work in 2004, ordered from Hometown. Their pizza rocks, there's no other way to put it. Absolutely delicious and the way pizza should taste. Also try their cheese breadsticks, and their potato wedges are also incredible. The night we ordered, it happened to be very busy and our order was a bit "messed up". I phoned back, and the location manager was very friendly and took care of us - was very grateful for his help, professionalism and commitment to excellence! Well done!!

Cooper's Restaurant

Reviewed By genalola - Sandy Creek, New York

My dinner consisted of fried dark meat chicken, mashed potatoes with milk gravy, coleslaw and a roll for $7.20. I kid you not. Some of the best fried chicken I've ever had. And for dessert - a marshmallow milkshake. Amazing. Great prices and good food.

Two Rivers Restaurant

Reviewed By Paul S - Marion

Pulled up to the General Butler state park lodge and the Two Rivers restaurant. looking forward to a nice evening meal with a scenic view after a long day on the road. On entering the building, there was a sloppily hand written note saying only that "Dinner will be served in the General's Quarters this evening." No explanation, no hours, no map. Did they mean the historical Butler/ Turpin house on the park property? No- after looking around, it turns out that is the name of the bar. No view, but full bar. Apparently they just expect everyone to know that. I was confused because servers were still bringing food up on trays from the restaurant kitchen on the floor below. I don't know if the elevator wasn't working, they had a personnel shortage, or they didn't expect many evening guests because it was so cold or what. I tried to get an explanation from people at the desk but was completely ignored. I swear that when I walked up the one woman picked up the phone (which hadn't rung) and had a conversation instead of acknowledging me. That was very unprofessional and rude. Since they obviously did not want our business, we went back down the hill into town for a pleasant meal and tipped accordingly.

Welch's Riverside Restaurant

Reviewed By Larry H - Louisville, Kentucky

Today we rode to Welch's for lunch. It was a picture perfect day for riding motorcycles Welch's sits right on the Ohio river and has great views of the river and boats. Today I got the Greek burger, a hand patted burger topped with Gyro meat and sauce. All the food we ordered looked great and they serve breakfast all day. One thing I noticed was the menus did not have the prices, but the prices were very reasonable

Smallest Waffle House I've ever been in, but fully staffed. Fast service, order hot and correct all for a fair price. Not a bad pit stop running through town.
