    Any of you Dayton-area types tried a 'que place called Yardbird's in Trenton? No Web site available.

    GF works with someone who lives out that way and says it's pretty good.

      Check out Yahoo Local's reviews: http://local.yahoo.com/in...hern-bar-b-que-trenton

      It looks clearly like someone deliberately stuffed the reviews (notice all of the 5 stars posted 8/4, 8/5, 8/6/07.) When some reviews of small town restaurants in Ohio indicate that the service has problems, I tend to believe those reviews (let's just say that I've found that bad service is the norm.)

      This place, I'd be skeptical.

        Our lunchbunch visited Q's Raxx last Thursday.  Mixed reviews. Many differences of opinion on the food consumed.  Pix etc follow. 

        The best part of the day food-wise for me was stopping at Marx Bagels in Blue Ash to pick up some raisin bagels and bialys and getting a shot of owner in his Bagelman regalia which I will be posting here also.

          Here is the owner of Marx Bagels  in and out of his costume:





          The home of the very best Kosher  NY bagels and bialys in Cincinnati...

            Looks like a menu consisting of middling BBQ, with tired sports bar fare with cloyingly cutesy names as filler.  Typical for this part of the country (unfortunately).

            Also, I didn't know that a choice of American or cheddar cheese made a burger "southern style".

              Here are the photos from our visit to Q's Raax:

              http://s417.photobucket.com/albums/pp260/radians2009/Qs%20Raxx/?

              and a slide show:

              http://s417.photobucket.com/albums/pp260/radians2009/Qs%20Raxx/?albumview=slideshow




              If you go after dark their sign is not illuminated so look for them directly across the street from Hertz and Tires Incorporated

              I thought their macaconi and cheese was pretty tasteless.  Their okra fries were OK but I much prefer the fried okra at NOTG.  Their red beans and rice has about 11 herbs and spices in it according to Quinton the owner.  The taste is a bit odd and like nothing I ever had before.

              Their potato and bacon soup was absolutely wonderful.

              Their chicken noodle soup was kind of plain jane with little to recommend it.

              The pulled pork sandwich was very bland and sparsely populated - the green beans were pretty plain.

              Their cornbread was tasteless and resembled more a Johnny Cake.  The jerk chicken was pretty dried out but tasty.  The sweet potato casserole was very sweet and yummy.

              I found their potato salad to be very bland and mundane - the baked beans were nothing to write home about - the bbq beef ribs were very dry - the bbq sauce was pretty plain and sweet.

              The apple cobbler was delicious even tho we were disappointed they ran out of peach cobbler very early.

              Our waitress Ella Mae of the 11 tattoos seemed very harried even though they were not very busy when we arrived.  Something happened though as our visit went on and she seemed pretty mellow by the time we were ready to leave.

              Quinton spent some time with us and was very genial and pleasant to talk with.  He is the main chef also.

              One of our members loved the jerk chicken and another loved the bbq beef ribs so I guess you need to try their food for yourselves to decide what you think of it.

                Nice tip! I find that hilarious....but useful.

                Good report and photos. Too bad it wasn't all that good.

                  While taking in your slide show, the missus and I both posited that the only thing that even resembled exceptional was the potato soup.

                  I look forward to your next lunch bunch outing, sir!  Thanks for the continued awesome posts!

                          Here is a photo of the storefront, and the owner Alex Mercado is on the left and the mural artist is to the right:



                          The expected opening day is the middle of August.

                          Here are some of the beautiful murals in the restaurant:

                          Click to view full size:





                          The address is 137 N Point Drive, Mt Orab. Coming east on State Route 32,  you exit onto State Route 68, turn left and go over the 32 overpass and turn left at the first light  and left again immediately and they are  behind Skyline Chili  in a strip shopping center.

                          I spoke to the owner today and he said all is ready for the opening but they are waiting on their furniture to come in from Mexico.  My guess is the opening should be around the beginning of next month. 
                          I learned today they will open on November 14th.

                          Mi Camino Real  opened for business yesterday:


                          I grabbed a couple of take out menus.  Their fare is similar to their locations in Georgetown and Maysville except they are offering a number of specialty shrimp dinners not available at their other locations - they are open seven days a week.  Our lunchbunch will eat there next week and offer comments photos etc.

                            Our lunchbunch dined here Thursday:

                            Tsao's Cuisine - Fairborn - Dayton | Urbanspoon


                            Tsao's Cuisine
                            (937) 429-5899

                            Dayton, OH 45431

                            photos and comments to follow shortly
                            Here are links to photos and a slideshow at Tsao's Cuisine:

                            All food on the buffet was well above average, for a buffet.  I particularly loved the rock salt shrimp, the soups, the sesame pork and the General Tsao Chicken.  I did prefer though the potato and sausage soup at Q's Raxx as it was tastier and in a cream sauce - Tsao's was in a broth and not as flavorful but it was still pretty good.  You could get egg drop too if you ask for it - the potato and sausage soup at Tsao's is offered only on Thursdays.  I did not ask if they have a special soup daily - just plain forget.

                            When we came in at 11 AM it was quiet and empty but within the hour the place was totally packed with a whole lot of folks including military personnel from Wright Pat.

                            I really wanted to order off the specialty board but frankly the buffet looked so good and reasonable that I could not resist it, nor could  my companions.   We were all pretty satisfied with the offerings of the buffet.

                              Decent, thanks for the photo essay. The entrees in that buffet are among the freshest looking I've seen for a buffet.

                                  It was so good they had to replenish it two or three times the hour or so we were there.

                                  The specialty board has  English translations.

                                    I have never seen such a mob scene at a Chinese buffet.  Maybe everyone takes lunch at the same hour.

                                      My fellow Lunchbuncher did such a nice job on this collage of Tsao's Cuisine I thought I would post it here directly:

                                        NYPN, I think you guys should strip the captions off of your food collages and sell them back to the restaurants for their advertising.

                                        The weird surrealism of all of that floating food is oddly enticing.

                                            Here is an article on Mi Camino Real's grand opening this past Thursday:

                                            Mi Camino Real opens Nov. 19

                                              Friday, November 20, 2009

                                            Representatives of Mi Camino Real restaurant and the Brown County Chamber of Commerce celebrate the grand opening of the restaurant with a ribbon cutting Nov. 19. Mexican food enthusiasts living in the Mt. Orab area won't have to drive as far now to be served that cuisine.

                                            Mi Camino Real opened for business at noon this past Thursday, Nov. 19, as Mt. Orab's newest eatery and first full-fledged Mexican restaurant.

                                            Mi Camino Real is located by State Route 32 in the Northpoint Centre business plaza in the space formerly occupied by Royal Buffet, a Chinese restaurant.

                                            Alex Mercado, manager of the new restaurant, is one of its owners as well. Mercado also manages and owns Mi Camino Real restaurant in Maysville, Ky., and Micasa Real restaurant, which opened Sept. 4 in downtown Georgetown across from the Brown County Courthouse.

                                            Mercado said one reason he and the other owners of the new Mi Camino Real chose Mt. Orab as a site in which to open and operate a Mexican restaurant is because that village is in a growing area. He also mentioned how many Mt. Orab area residents had traveled to eat at the Maysville restaurant he owns.

                                            Customers may enjoy a wide variety of Mexican beef, chicken, pork, shrimp and vegetarian offerings, the manager said. Customers also are treated to free chips and salsa.

                                            Mercado said the restaurant is working to obtain a license to allow it to sell and serve alcoholic beverages to customers who enjoy those drinks with their meals.

                                            Restaurant Can Seat 130

                                            Mi Camino Real in Mt. Orab can seat about 130 people, Mercado reported. He said he expects the restaurant to employ 13 or 14 full-time and part-time employees.

                                            Several brightly-covered painted scenes were added to the restaurant's walls prior to its opening, and even the backs of the chairs have some paintings, all to make the atmosphere of the eatery more cheerful and festive.

                                            Mercado said he wants to invite the public to visit the new restaurant and see what it has to offer.

                                            "We're very pleased to be there," he said in a Nov. 17 telephone interview. "We hope everyone likes the restaurant really well."

                                            The new Mi Camino Real's hours will be 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 11 a.m.-10:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 11 a.m.-9:30 p.m. Sundays. The restaurant's telephone number is (937) 444-2200.

                                            Mt. Orab Mayor Bruce Lunsford welcomed the new restaurant, saying it fills a void - a lack of Mexican restaurants - in that village.

                                            Lunsford said he always is glad to see businesses locate in Mt. Orab and he was happy to see Mi Camino Real fill up vacant space in Northpoint Centre.

                                                  Thanks but there is not a whole lot in Brown County restaurant-wise to keep up with!  When a new restaurant opens here it is big new.

                                                    Just wanted to share with you the latest two take out pizza pies we got last Thursday from Troni's Pizzeria in Kettering (on the way back from Tsao's Cuisine) - the plain large one went home with me and the four topping small one went home with my fellow lunchbuncher - both were excellent!!

                                                        Well we played several games of Scrabble at the local library and then we headed over to Troni's - we always do this when in the general Dayton vicinity as we both live a good piece from that area and they make the best NY style pizza pies in southwest Ohio.

                                                        Being an ex-New Yorker it would be criminal not to pick up take up pizza from Troni's on the way home - I would eat there but my fellow lunchbunch crew love experiencing new places each week so I have to settle for take out pizza from Troni's.  My wife also loves their pizzas as do I.

                                                        Troni's is owned by a close knit Albanian family but you wouldn't know it from the great Italian food they offer.

                                                          I have never seen such a mob scene at a Chinese buffet.  Maybe everyone takes lunch at the same hour.


                                                          I work at Wright Patt and it has become quite the popular spot for lunch with most of the people I work with. The nice part about the limited variety is that they are constantly replenishing items as they run out quicker, which means they are much fresher.

                                                          What you lose in variety you more than make up for in quality. If they only had a few items that the other Chinese buffet down the road had, I would never go anywhere else for lunch.

                                                            Do they have the same buffet items daily in general?  They do not have much room with their set up.  What other items would you want to see there?
