Ramsey's Diner - Lexington, KY

I was lead to this "institution" by a friend and alumnus of UK (Ashley Reis). After a full morning of bourbon tasting in the region, I wanted to check out the town of Lexington and the campus of UK. Erica and I stopped in for a late lunch at 4pm. The crowd wasn't much, but I can see that since it is also a full service bar, the students could find themselves here at all hours of an evening.

For my meal I choose the buffalo fried chicken plate. It came with a choice of two sides and cornbread; I choose mashed potatoes and green beans. I really enjoyed my meal, where Erica only ate it for nutritional value. My buffalo sauce was tasty with just enough kick and the fried batter wasn't overwhelming. My mashed potatoes and gravy were just as I hoped for from a southern diner, but my green beans did not impress.

I'm glad I got a glimpse of the local campus scene. The food and atmosphere bring me back, and there are certain advantages to the south that I did not get in Michigan. Since Ramsey's already has a devoted following, my praise is nothing new. It will be on my list next time I return.
