Where To Find Meat on a Stick in Louisville

View as Map

Louisville has many meats, and some of them come on sticks. While we did not include every situation and seasonal venue (the State Fair, riverfront concerts, Oktoberfests) where stick-stuck meat can be found, Eater does attempt to present a panoramic view of skewered meats around the city. Any objections, omissions or observations are, as always, welcome in the comments.
