Delicious restaurants less than 10 minutes away from our East End Louisville apartments

The perks and amenities at our East Louisville apartments are nearly endless. From our resort-style swimming pool and on-site dog parks to stainless steel appliances and 9-foot ceilings, there are so many incredible things to love about living at our luxury complex. And, of course, the kitchens in each unit are fit for a chef; however, when you feel like dining out and exploring the neighborhood, there are some fantastic restaurants within a short distance from your front door. Here are some of the tastiest restaurants located less than 10 minutes from Sawyer East End.


Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint

When you live in Louisville, eating barbecue regularly comes with the territory. Luckily, for residents of our East End Louisville apartments, Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint is located less than 5 minutes away. Originally based out of Nashville, this staple smokes their BBQ daily for over 20 hours—low and slow. Their specialty is the West Tennessee-Style Whole Hog BBQ, but you’ll also find brisket, wings, ribs, burgers, tacos, and lots of tasty sides to go along with it. Head over to Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint’s website for menus, hours, and to place your order online.


Old School N.Y. Pizza

Just a ten-minute drive from Sawyer East End is Old School N.Y. Pizza – your new favorite pizza spot. Serving authentic New York-style pizza by the slice, you can also get whole pies to go, calzones, subs, hoagies, salads, wings, and more. Try the house specialties like PBR (potato, bacon, and ranch) pizza and the Philly Cheesesteak pizza, or build your own with your favorite toppings. Place your order online and view the menu on the Old School N.Y. Pizza website.


I Love Tacos Louisville

It’s never long before you get a craving for tacos – and I Love Tacos Louisville is here to satisfy that craving. Known for having the “best tacos in Louisville,” this neighborhood favorite spot has birria tacos, shrimp tacos, brisket tacos, and lots of vegetarian options as well. But that’s not all they have on their menu – you’ll also want to try their tortas, burritos, flautas, nacho, tostones, and more. They also have margaritas, wine, beer, and other yummy beverages. Be sure to stop by during Happy Hour for some killer deals. Visit the I Love Tacos Louisville website for menus and all the other details you need.


Limón y Sal

Just 3.5 miles from our East Louisville apartments is Limón y Sal (previously Casa Fiesta Mexican Bar), another fantastic Mexican restaurant. The extensive menu features much more than just your basic Mexican fare. Start your meal with queso fundido, elotes, or taquitos before moving on to your entree – although you’ll have a hard time choosing between quesadillas, street tacos and tortas, soups and salads, burritos, seafood, fajitas, enchiladas, and lots of house specialties. They also boast a full bar with refreshing beverages like specialty margaritas, daiquiris, and beer. Plus, they offer Taco Tuesdays (and Mondays!) for food at a discount. Head to the Limón y Sal website for menus and online ordering.


Karem’s Grill and Pub

The casual and inviting atmosphere of Karem’s Grill and Pub is the place to be “where everyone knows your name”. The menu has a little bit for everyone – even the pickiest of eaters – and each item is prepared with care, love, and the highest-quality ingredients. Start with potato skins or hot brown fritters, then choose from sandwiches and wraps like a fried bologna sandwich or Philly cheese wrap. Or, go for something heartier like a Boss Burger, Mahi Mahi plate, or Chicken Cordon Bleu. Order online, view menus, and more on the Karem’s Grill and Pub website.


Blind Squirrel

Less than 6 miles from our East Louisville apartments is the beloved Blind Squirrel. Their mission is “to leave a smile upon our guests’ faces and a feeling of great satisfaction when they leave the restaurant,” and they certainly deliver. The expansive menu has a little bit of everything from nachos and wings, soups and greens, sandwiches and wraps, and burgers and pizzas. What more do you really need?
