There are still plenty of restaurants in Kentucky that Food Network's Guy Fieri has yet to visit. It's not like he's ignored the Bluegrass State--that's hardly the case--but we have so many great eateries here that he needs to return.

The Food Network's Guy Fieri Is a Big Fan of Kentucky Cooking

Fieri is arguably the top personality on the Food Network; he has two shows among the 12 highest rated on the network. They would be Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives and Guy's Grocery Games. No surprise.

You know, while I do enjoy Triple D--as Guy, himself, calls it--I also look at it as sort of a live-action version of Trip Advisor. And whenever I travel, I look for restaurants he has spotlighted. I've only ever been to one, however, and that would be the Parkette Drive-In in Lexington, and it has sadly closed.

Guy Fieri Has a Restaurant in Downtown Louisville

But Fieri has visited the Commonwealth on many occasions, with the majority of his stops being in Louisville where he has a restaurant downtown.

Louisville has become quite the destination for foodies; the NuLu area is flush with taste-tempting options, for example. So it makes sense that someone like Fieri would want to join the fray.

Guy Fieri's Favorite Kentucky Restaurant -- Gralehaus

Since there are so many trips to Derby City under his belt, you gotta figure Guy Fieri has to have a favorite...even if he has CLEARLY enjoyed them all. Well, not only does he have a favorite, he hasn't shied away from making it known.  (If you're involved with any of the OTHER restaurants where he's filmed, I'd stop reading; he didn't pick you.)

Nope, THIS is Guy's favorite Louisville restaurant:

A Little Gralehaus Backstory and the Menu

Located on Baxter Avenue, in one of my favorite Louisville neighborhoods, Gralehaus is a B & B. Only here, B & B stands for "bed and beverage." Yes, there are guest rooms upstairs, and whole of food and drink downstairs in this 9-year-old hotspot. But despite the fact that the second "B" stands for "beverage," you can absolutely order breakfast at Gralehaus, which is open from 9 AM to 2 PM. And the menu? Reasonably priced, in my opinion, and maybe even a little whimsical.


So what's Guy's favorite ITEM at Gralehaus? Why, it would be the fried bologna sandwich. Sounds like he's a man after my own heart.
