When I first heard about KSBar and Grille opening up earlier this summer, I kind of laughed and thought “this place won’t be around for long”. Well, I believe I will be wrong. I have been to KSBar three times since its opening and it hasn’t disappointed (yet). Since I am a food expert, I thought I’d write a review about the restaurant started by Kentucky Sports Radio’s own, Matt Jones.
The first night I went, which was the actual opening day/night, I sat in the back and had the nachos to start. It was a little awkward at first because when I first got them, I saw that instead of tortilla chips it had potato chips. The reason I say it was awkward is because I gave a worried look when I first saw them and my waitress clearly saw it and left. It was a little alarming at, but, I put a big bite in my mouth and was quite impressed.
I then had the BBQ burger and the onion rings. I was so full from the nachos I had to get a to-go box three bites in , but I finished my leftovers the next day. A+.
The second night I went, I sat at the front and ordered the pretzel bites and the 10-piece sweet-thai-chili wings, and told the waiter to bring them out at the same time, which was a mistake for two reasons. About five minutes after my order, my stomach started growling and I really wanted my pretzel bites. The other reason I will get to in a minute.
I got my wings and they were tiny. This was a little aggravating but I didn’t make a big deal about it because they looked really good, and they were. Definitely live up to the hype. Now, the second reason I was aggravated about getting my pretzel bites with my wings was because I got them about 10-minutes after I got my wings. But, they were delicious and worth the wait.
The third night I went I sat in the back and debated on whether to get the fried pickles or the cheese sticks. I asked my waitress and she said she recommended the fried pickles and then added that the cheese sticks were also really good, which made my decision so much easier. I went with the fried pickles which was a great choice. The ranch is also really good because five pickles in, I had to ask for more.
I then ordered my meal. I got the same order of wings with the same sauce, but, I shook it up a little bit and added a side of the mac n’ cheese. I got my wings 15 minutes later and, once again, they were tiny. But, very good. I finished those off, washed my hands, and dug into my mac n’ cheese, which was gone in about 10 seconds.
The atmosphere at KSBar is very good. A place for all ages. Every once in a while you will see a very strange man usually in a hoodie, shorts, and with messy hair. Tonight though, this strange man was wearing a suit, I was wondering who it was, then I realized it was Matt Jones. I was disappointed to say the least.
Anyway, the atmosphere is great. The servers are very nice and there are always nice people there. Even though I have only been there three times, I haven’t had a bad experience. Overall, three great nights.
The place is a lot bigger in person and it’s very impressive.
This place is great. Good food, great service, full of nice people, and a very nice restaurant. You should definitely visit it whether you live 5 minutes, 5 hours, or 5 days away. It will also be a great place to watch a game and being a huge sports fan myself, I will for sure be there for a few games.
Oh wait, here’s a picture of the strange man:
