Wagner's Pharmacy, a Churchill Downs Tradition Since 1922

Located across from Churchill Downs, Wagner's Pharmacy has been a Louisville landmark since 1922. This old fashioned pharmacy, known for its fountain counter and diner, has been serving up hot food for horse trainers, breeders, owners and race fans for a large part of the track's history.

Open Monday through Saturday, Wagner's offers a great hot breakfast menu of omelets, pancakes, bacon and hashbrowns. When the cook asks if you're sure you really want to order the Pam and Jack omelet featured in the Bobby Flay throwdown, you should listen! The four egg, three meat, two cheese, tomato, onion, and green pepper omelet is so large it hangs off of the plate. Starting at 11 a.m. the lunch menu offers a tasty variety of soups, sandwiches and classic burger platters.

While at first glance the building may not seem enticing on the outside, it is the perfect fit for a racetrack pharmacy diner that has been feeding the appetites of horsemen and women for over ninety years. With almost every inch of wall space lined with Kentucky Derby memorabilia, Wagner's is a must do stop for anyone interested in Churchill Downs history.
Restaurant hours: Monday thorough Friday, 8:00 a.m-2:30 p.m., Saturday, 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
