  1. I gotta give my vote to Liz and Jesse of Grind food truck. However I do LOVE Genius in a Box. Me and my crew will be there enjoying the menu

    I really like Holy Mole….and they’ve been around Louisville for longer than the others.

  3. Love Holy Mole, but my hands-down favorite is Grind. Their burger creations are inspired, and their beef is amazing. Not to mention, Liz and Jesse are FANTASTIC. Wish I could be there!

    I’m going to go with Holy Mole. They consistently have delicious vegetarian options.
