Have dined at coals on Shelbyville road location many times and each visit is always perfect! Prices on wine, and mix drinks are very reasonable and the food and service is always perfect. Fast and friendly service.

We stopped as suggested by Trip Advisor. Definitely a win! Fun atmosphere with great pizza. Our server, Elizabeth, was excellent and knowledgeable! She made it extra fun! We ordered the Louisville pizza...excellent. Great choices of wines and beers. It's with a trip off the interstate!
