This is one I would probably like to make but my tentative schedule now is to head to Washington DC/northern VA in March then head down the coast to Florida and then over to Texas by the 17th of April and back up to Indiana for the month of May. Not sure I would zigzag back up to Cincinnati as April is still a little early to be up north in an RV.


Besides can't get you get Cincinnati 5 way hotdish in the Twin Cities?- just add Tater tots, wild rice and cream of mushroom soup!

I think Jonnycakes and snail salad are now all the rage in the Twin Cities.

WJ - It would be great if you could make it, I understand the obligations and and the difficulties.  It would be great to meet Sandra too, but I understnad totally.

Sundancer - Yes 4-12-14 is the date

Davydd - if not in the cards maybe we can meet up either @ Nick's or in Indy somewhere

Don,
 
We manage to somehow stop at Nick's Kitchen just about every May. This year we'll be going to the Indianapolis Grand Prix May 10, then a RV.net B Rally May 15-18 on Lake Monroe, and then the Indy 500 May 25. So, we will be in Indiana for some time. Our normal routine is to head north the day after the race through Michigan and then across the UP with a stop at Nick's Kitchen on the way up. One year we did meet up with Carolina Bob at Nick's Kitchen.

If Davydd commits I may reconsider and go (if Buffetbuster would let me carpool with him!)

WJ, your company would be most welcome.  I'd hate to sing show tunes for that entire 5 hour drive all by myself!

Just as long as you don't put on hours of conservative talk radio like Poverty Pete did to me on our drive from Nashville to Greenville MS, then I'm good!  " />

Sorry to get here so late.  Part of the problem is, my computer screen displays this thread title as "UPDATED - Cincinnati Stye Chili & Coney Crawl ***** APRIL 12, 201", leaving off the "4", leading me to believe this was a past event and not one upcoming.
 
Anyway, I'm here now with a spark of interest.  I'm not as interested in Cincinnati Style Chili as some others, but I don't dislike it, and the prospect of seeing old friends and making new ones is a draw.
 
I heartily approve of your non-Chili choices.  In fact, I encourage you to toss in a few more.  Anyone who hasn't experienced Jungle Jim's or enjoyed the Ice Cream at Graeter's or Aglamesis Bros. will be delighted.   I thoroughly enjoyed my last visit to Pit to Plate, and wouldn't mind a revisit.  TJ Jackson (whom I've met) might even recommend an even better 'Que joint.
 
I've got to see how the new year develops, so no firm commitments yet.  But if the stars all line up, you can count me in for this trip.
 
Buddy

Cincinnati isn't a great que town, but there is a REALLY good one in Newtown right across from the temporarily shut down Iron Skillet (where you had as best I recall a pretty good euro/german meal a few years back) called Just Q'in
 
Call before you go because their hours are kinda wonky, especially in colder months
 
They have little or no indoor seating, so if you do go there expect to eat ala trunk or ala dashboard

Howdy.  Lots of places will be hard to add, but I might (strongly) recommend Dixie Chili across the river in Newport, home of the 6-Way (a traditional 5-Way with added fresh minced garlic) and they serve the odd variation on the traditional coney, called an Alligator.  It's a coney but with cheese, mayo and a dill spear.  Weirdly delicious.  The 6-Way is manna from Heaven, but your spouse might file for halitosis-induced divorce.

Welcome to RF Johnstpw, Dixie is in the top of the list and will probably make the cut, plus it gives us a driving break between stops.
 
I am still working n the stops and the order they come in, but I can't wait for April to get here.

Eli's on Riverside is good 'cue as well. For a buck extra you can order the sides "dirty" -- sprinkled with crumbled "bark" outside meat. It's a dollar well-spent.
 
That being said, I prefer Just Q'in by a nose. We order carryout once every couple of months.
 
I went to Camp Washington Chili for the first time ever a couple of weeks ago and was pleasantly delighted.

Is Burbank's still around? I remember back in the '70s eating at the Burbank's that was opened in Columbus and enjoyed it. Unfortunately, it didn't last here more than a year or two.

Thanks. That reminds me. Is Gary Burbank still doing radio there? And does anyone in Cincinnati remember Bob Turley?

Roadfood Pro-Tip:

When traveling to Cincinnati from North Carolina, do not put barbecue near the top of your menu choices.

I'm sure a visit to Montgomery Inn will change your tune.

No, it won't - Montgomery Inn isn't even bbq
 
The "bbq" they serve is boiled then grilled then (heavily) sauced

I agree.  Most of us locals are only in the last decade or so starting to learn what bbq actually is, mostly because thats when real bbq joints started opening up in this area.   
 
Before I joined this website a  decade or so ago, I thought bbq was  a) meat with bbq sauce or b) meat grilled outdoors......and this is pretty much what the majority of Cincinnatians still seem to think. 
 
The learning is a work in progress.
