They are fantastic. I love to come there around Derby Day, especially, to get their Ky Burgoo and Tousey Pie. (Derby Pie) what a treat! Need to try Breakfast Buffet on Sundays.

Tousey House is a building on the historic register in Burlington, KY. It features good and unusual dishes, and the feeling that you have stepped back in time. Beautiful antiques and really good food. Also, some outstanding outdoor seating for the warm weather.

Questions like this should go directly to the restaurant. Trip Advisor reviewers would not know the current details. Bit whatever they offer will be good.
Do you or can you serve a non-alcoholic beer?
