One or two restaurants sit near the boundaries of Klondike, and numerous other gather just a short drive to the west. Most eateries serve Asian, Middle Eastern, European and Southern food, ensuring that you can find something to suit any mood.
The chicken shawarma plate at Alwatan Restaurant, which comes with warm, house-made flatbread and a dollop of creamy hummus, has its own small following in Klondike. The restaurant also serves other Mediterranean mainstays, including gyros and falafel. Don't bother making a reservation — simply walk up to the counter to order and enjoy the low-key ambiance.
When you need the comfort of a true Southern feast, pop over to Dasha Barbours Southern Bistro in Buechel.
Start with an order of fried green tomatoes before moving on to a main of fried chicken and coleslaw made with homemade mayonnaise. Local diners love the inexpensive prices and the friendly service from the husband-and-wife owners.
Also in Buechel, the casual Angio's Italian Restaurant serves a variety of specialty pizzas in an amicable atmosphere. Try the barbecue chicken pizza or build your own from the wide variety of toppings. On Wednesdays, stop in for cheap drink specials.
Nightlife in Klondike is virtually nonexistent, but you can find a few bars within a few miles of the neighborhood. Enjoy the mixed drinks at Hikes Point
Bar and Lounge on Taylorsville Road, or play a round of darts while you watch the big game at Jock's Sports Bar and Grill. Although Klondike does not have any live music venues, locals love Jock's for its DJ nights, poker tournaments and karaoke.
