Delicious food. Have always had great experiences at Bootleg and their workers are the best in the restaurant business!! Only thing they could do to make it better, would be to make sure they purchase meatier wings. There's not much meat on them. Seems to be most peoples complaint why they don't buy their wings for parties, etc.

Service was friendly and efficient. We got the family pack and the sides were great (mac & cheese, twice baked potatoes), however, the beef brisket was sliced too thick and wasn't nearly as tender as it normally is.

What You'll Get

The best barbecue recipes are kept close to the heart, where they can hear the belly talk in its sleep about the ribs dreams are made of. Collect pilfered stomach secrets with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of smoky barbecue and drinks at Bootleg Bar-B-Q. Choose between the following locations: Bardstown Road in Fern Creek or Preston Highway in Okolona.

An inexhaustible source of slow-cooked, smoky ribs, the Bootleg Bar-B-Q pit masters have supplied area carnivores with excellent meat since 1991. Bootleg's co-owners work alongside their mutton-juggling employees to deliver well-slathered meatstuffs dressed in savory sauces to starving mouths of all sizes. When running their buds over the menu, tongues trill at the feel of robust half-slab dinners ($12.49) and choose from a wide selection of meat sandwiches including pulled-pork and beef-brisket ($4.99 each). A review from The Courier-Journal advises sandwich aficionados to order their first time selection without sauce, then sample every Bootleg sauce until the ideal accompaniment reveals itself. Bootleg recommends customers send meat-seeking missives ahead of their arrival, as many sublimely smoked dishes take time to prepare, such as the wings(25 for $11.99; 50 for $20.99; 100 for $39.99), which require three-hours' notice to exchange their aerodynamacy for hot and sticky flavor. A slew of enticing sides ($1.79–$22.99), available in individual, pint, or gallon sizes, fill remaining gut space with homespun fixings made from scratch, including country coleslaw, mac 'n' cheese, and down home tater salad.

Modest outdoor seating and a small indoor area are available at the Bardstown Road location, so many diners opt for carryout, but poker-playing rounders frequent the Bardstown Road tables. The Preston Highway location offers a large indoor space with TVs showing your favorite Mann & Machine episodes. Bootleg's signature barbecue sauce can be taken home in jugs, then used privately to enhance waffles and cat food.
