Local Spotlight: Oscar Diggs

Oscar Diggs is a brand new restaurant that opened January of this year and is located on Restaurant Row in downtown Lexington. It's the newest gastropub to open in Central Kentucky. Oscar Diggs is the brainchild of Ralph Quillin's Rooster Brewing (which is located in Paris, Kentucky) and the Gastro Gnomes food truck guys, Andrew Suthers and Kyle Klatka. They've since parked the food truck and now are operating as a brick and mortar. #sharethelex #lexingtonky #kentucky #eatlexington #eatkentucky #visitlex #travelky #shoplocal #gastropub

He wanted a place where people could enjoy good barbecue and beer, so Red State was born. David Carroll is the owner, and this is one barbecue joint you need to eat at!
