LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A popular west coast burger joint is coming to Louisville.

Stout Burgers & Beer is moving into the space where La Bodega used to be on Bardstown Road in the Highlands.

The Los Angeles staple is known for gourmet burgers and draft microbrew beers.

Restaurant owners say Louisville's food scene is getting national attention and they thought it would be a great addition.

Stout Burgers & Beer is expected to open before Derby.

This location along with a planned Nashville restaurant will be the first ones outside of its LA market.
