Wallace StationSeptember 8, 2011 by: Brian
In following Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives host Guy Fieri, the wife and I took in a visit to Wallace Station in Versailles, KY. The scenic drive was amazing as well as the quaint location this little diner sits in. Upon parking and walking into the establishment, we first noticed the old-farmhouse feel to the joint. The ceiling, floors, and walls were all wood plank and worn adding to the character of the place. Horse-themed decor was popular throughout. Another noticeable trait was the fantastic smells of the southern cooking. Fresh bread and fried chicken could be identified all the way from the parking lot.
I ordered the signature dish (and Guy recommended) Big Brown Burger (the wife ordered Sammi’s Pimiento Cheeseburger). We were a little taken back from the price of the 1/3 pound burgers at almost 9 dollars each, but it came with chips and we heard these were the best burgers around town, so we had to give it a try. The burgers were definitely high up on the list of better burgers. The meat was fresh, hand pattied, and locally raised. The bread was fresh baked and delicious! My burger had ham, bacon, white cheddar mornay, red onions, and fresh tomatoes. Heather’s sandwich had a fresh pimiento spread, red onions, and pickle slices and both were served in a basket with chips. All-in-all, not a bad burger and I appreciated the new take on an old classic – the KY Hot Brown (and the 100% Health Dept Rating).
