A rickety structure in the Highlands neighborhood houses this infamous dive bar, where locals have been flocking for years to kick back with a cold beer or a shot of bourbon. The real reason you're coming to Bambi, though, is to indulge in the beloved Bambi Burger, which you can order in one of five ways: no sides, with chips, with fries, with onion rings, or with your choice of appetizer. No matter what, this juicy delicacy comes topped with American cheese, onions, tomatoes, pickles, lettuce, and mayo -- just like a classic watering-hole burger should be.
This legendary dive has been delighting the grizzled masses since 1946 and shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. The famous Bambi Burger, a fist-sized patty piled high with American cheese, crisp lettuce, onion, tomato, pickles, and mayo, takes center stage, second only to the patrons’ undying love for Louisville Cardinals athletics. Don’t expect a dozen giant TVs, cloth napkins, or high-end anything here, just an incredible patio, friendly folks, and a whole lot of laughs.
