Bluegrass Burgers, 3334 Frankfort Ave., 614-6567, $. The burgers (and other things) are fine at Bluegrass Burgers, but I’m even more smitten by its locavore philosophy — the restaurant uses all grass-fed Kentucky beef and produce. The menu features a half-dozen choices, ranging in price from $5.99 (for an all-beef frank) to $8.99 (for the Kentucky grass-fed bison burger). (Reviewed 5/4/11; Rating: 90)

A.J.'s Gyros To Go

By alhan2
I would like to know why my business, A.J.'s Gyros To Go is not listed in the dining guide this year. To date I have sold 39,701 gyros, my pumpkin shakes are second to none, and people come from all over for my gyros and other food. Georgetown is still in Southern Indiana you know. It doesn't all end at Floyds Knobs. Berry Twist and Widows Walk are listed so why not me. Not very happy. Alison Hanover
