Cincinnati to Columbus, Ohio (Easton area)

Looking for non-chain restaurant recommendations between Cincinnati and Columbus. We are staying in the Easton area, but not restricted to that area. Includes a (most of the time!) mature eight year old.

Thanks!

    What route are you taking? I-71 all the way?

    When in Columbus, go to German Village. Have some food at Schmidt's Haus http://www.schmidthaus.com/ . And, while you are in German Village, hit the Book Loft. http://www.bookloft.com/  . Crazy book-loving store...

    If you want nostalgia, check out the original Max and Erma's. Same menu, but cool building.

    There's nothing but farmland from the Cincinnati to Columbus suburbs, but Thurman's Cafe (even though MvF did a blurb on it) is outstanding in southern Columbus.
     
    Mildly upscale but excellent Italian at Scali in Reynoldsburg (just a little south of Easton). Someone here tipped me off about that place.
     
    Pretty much can't go wrong with the chili places mentioned here if you spend any time in Cinci.

    If you want a good dog with tons of topping choices and can deal with a hipster vibe, then Dirty Frank's located downtown is very good.

    We'll take 71 at least one way. I need to make a quick stop at the outlet mall in Jeffersonville.

    I live in Cincinnati, so I know all about the chili

    Thanks for all of the help! We have a strict no-chain rule when we dine out on vacation. I figure if I want the Cheesecake Factory or Graeter's, I can save my money and stay home!

    OK, one more.  I have been obsessed with this place lately:

    The al pastor tacos are phenomenal.

    Michael strongly recommends Scali......I have not been there yet.
    For a good deli there's Katzinger's.

    For good Coney dogs and great bean soup try Phillip's.

    Anyone know of anything in The Washington Court House vicinity? That's the Mayor's birthplace, and he know little about it or what has happened to the town since he left 68 years ago. Anything better than FF in the area??

    A good option located at Easton is North Star Cafe. It sounds strange but I highly recommend the veggie burger. They also have a great breakfast.

    Mayor - I ate at a good diner in Court House a few years ago that it think was like right in the middle of town on the square but I can't remember the name. I'll see if I can figure it out.
