"Unique Eats:" One Nineteen West Main

Posted: Updated:

LA GRANGE, Ky. (WDRB) --When Jason Kinser was growing up, he used to watch the train go by in downtown La Grange and day dream.

"I remember thinking man I could just jump on the train and go anywhere," he said.

He didn't know at the time those dreams and that train wouldn't have taken him far away.

"I could've gotten on and waited quite a few years, and would've been two blocks down the road," Kinser explained.

He owns and operates One Nineteen West Main. It's a restaurant where kids draw on tablecloths and classic games are used as decorations. What's different there is what's good.

"They have food you can't get at other restaurants," said one customer.

"The whole point of coming to a restaurant is to enjoy it, to try something different," said Kinser.

That's the inspiration behind "Thanksgiving On A Bun," a sandwich with thick, roasted turkey breast, homemade dressing, gravy, melted cheese and a little cranberry sauce, on a cibatta roll.

It's served not just in November, but year-round.

"It's everything you want without the in-laws or having to clean up," Kinser joked.

Hungry yet? No? Then, have you heard about "One Nineteen's" signature dessert?

"People look at us like we're crazy when we tell them it's bacon pie. We actually have a federal trademark on the name," he said.

It has creamy toffee, caramel filling, chocolate chips, pecans, and of course diced bacon. There are certainly no complaints.

"It's very good," a customer said.

A dream from a little boy on the other side of the tracks, now a man making food in Oldham County that customers say is worth every calorie.
