Where should I go?

by Alanna H » Wed Jan 08, 2020 6:23 pm

I will be visiting Louisville for a few days in early February. It is my first time back since moving to Colorado in 2018. As much as I love it here, Colorado Springs is NOT known for the restaurant scene. It's REALLY bad. I want to get some good food while I'm in town. Time is very limited, so I'll probably visit one favorite (Dragon King's Daughter!!!) and one new place.
I'd love to get thoughts and recommendations for that. Anyplace that opened between summer 2018 and now. Nothing expensive or fancy. I think I might be able to fit in Bougie Biscuit for breakfast one morning, so somewhere for lunch or dinner? I'm staying with my daughter in Okolona, but lived in Louisville for 43 years, so very familiar with most areas.

Alanna, I hope you enjoy your return visit! I'll try to come up with some specifics overnight, and I hope others will too. In the meantime, though, if you'll go to www.LouisvilleHotBytes.com and work backward through the reviews, I've hit quite a few of the new places, and that might give you some ideas.

Good suggestion! +2! Couvillion is one of the best eateries in town, and it gets overlooked, in my opinion. I love the gumbo z'herbes ...

If you are staying in Okolona, then you are in the heart of Louisville's best mexican restaurant row. I really like New Vallarta on Preston highway, but you really cant go wrong with any of them.

Glad to hear — what do you recommend there?
