Ollie's Trolley serves up good old-fashioned Southern soul food from a vintage trolley car parked on Central Avenue in the West End. The Trolley itself is hard to miss--it's adorned with photos of African-American leaders and a picture of the owner, Marvin Smith, with Barack and Michelle Obama (for whom he has catered numerous fundraisers). Ollie's is a longstanding but small national chain with only a few locations left--including one in Washington, D.C. and two in Louisville--however, the unique experience is worth the stop. The food is typically take-out only, but there are a few tables and chairs available, if you can grab one.Show more
