I sympathize with your poor dining experience, but I think anyone with a severe acne problems deserves some compassion and understanding. Also, acne does not automatically equal staph infection.


As for my own experiences, the last time I was at Gyro Palace near Dayton Mall, it seemed to me that the food quality had gone down. The tzatziki sauce was watery, the portions smaller. Now, I don't mind the latter quite so much because the original portions were huge, but I was rather sorry that the tzatziki sauce was thin and not quite as flavorful as it used to be, because that was one of my favorite things about ordering gyros! I hope they were just having an off day.

I'm going to be in Dayton this week and want to take my boss to a good steak place. I know about The Pine Club but is there anything better I should consider?

Pine Club rates very high in my book.

If you want a french flair try L'Auberge in Kettering.

Nice, good, and not overly stuffy for a business/social dinner. YMMV.

I was with a co-worker so it wasn't entirely my decision and then I realized/remembered the Pine Club does not take credit cards; being cash challenged we chose to go to Oregon District and ate at Cafe Boulevard. Wonderfully good filet mignon done with three excellent sauces that I really enjoyed.
I'll be better prepared for Pine Club on next visit.

Well, on my way to a meeting in Dayton last nite I needed to grab dinner, and a lot of Dayton foodies here mentioned Troni's. I'd thought I'd make the trek.

Grabbed a New York Style pizza with pepperoni and sausage and man, you folks have a little locally owned non-chain gem there.

Crust was browned with little blackend bits on the bottom and crunchy on the edges, but foldable like a NY pizza should be. Fresh made and shaved sausage--none of that crumbly stuff.

We've got maybe 3 or 4 non-chain places I go to here in Cincy and this is up there with the best.

No, Troni's is not cheap. But it's nice yet casual enough that you could feel like going for a date nite and eat in, or get a carryout pizza and pay a little more for good quality pie. Lasagna portions were HUGE! Seems to be vegetarian friendly as well. I want to try the white spinach pizza next time I am up.


My pie :)

VOLTZY'S at 4501 Kettering Blvd is opening a permanent structure right next to the trailer he currently has. Rick Volz has been running a trailer in Kettering forever maybe 20 years or so. Excellent hamburgers, hot dogs and other assorted things. Rick is one of the nicest individuals you will ever meet.He also has an amazing way of remembering just about everyone that has ever been to his trailer. He uses fresh ground beef daily and serves top quality everything. It is only open from 11 to 2 or so daily in the corner of a parking lot. He always has a dirty or of the wall joke. And the patrons are as diverse as it gets. If you haven't been to his place make sure you go prior to the permanent place opens and after it is built. I guarantee your visit to be rewarding and interesting....Russ

Here are a few reviews:

#
Voltzys is the BEST!!!!! My son and his friends told me of it a year or so ago. They went there almost daily for lunch during high school. The place is well on its way to being an iconic location for many generations!

Best burgers in the land
By A Yahoo! Contributer, 11/22/06
Looking for good food, Voltzy's is it. Rick the owner is awesome and his food is killer. It is a burger stand environment. But, if you can find better food anywhere, tell the world. Soups, greasy burgers, awesome food. Leave the cholesterol counter at home and just enjoy.

I went to Voltzy's for the first time today and in addition to the wonderful cheeseburgers, Rick (the owner) treated me to an awesome slaw dog (in honor of our both being from Fort Wayne!) I am so glad we live close to this lunch heavan and can't wait to go back.

Great Food!! I am sorry I just heard about it!
By A Yahoo! Contributer, 02/13/06
Wow this little hamburger stand has the best burgers I have had in a long time. Everything from the "Voltzy" to the "Hog" to the "Murph" to the Philly Steak has been delicious. First timers will thoroughly enjoy themselves. In fact I can't wait to go back every week for some "love and affection".
Honestly the food is so good you will go back time and time again.

A couple weekends ago, I went to the newish Kohinoor Palace Indian restaurant across from the Dayton Mall. (It's in that shopping strip with the halal grocery and A Taste of the Mediterranean.)

The weekend buffet is more expensive (around $11-12/person, I think it was), but well worth it-- especially if you want to get a sampling of southern Indian cuisine. I was surprised and pleased to see dosas on the buffet line, nicely crisp and filled with a spiced lentil/potato mixture. They had something called "Sikh kebabs" that tasted like sausage with sauteed onions and peppers (very accessible even if you don't ordinarily like Indian food, IMO), a tasty chickpea curry, an excellent goat curry, as well as the usual tandoori chicken, butter chicken curry (basically, chicken tikka masala), saag, lentils, pakoras, etc. Along with naan, they had a puffy deep-fried bread that was delicious.

It tasted/looked a bit more homestyle: the saag isn't pureed as finely, and overall the dishes seemed to be less rich than usual, which is fine by me. Even so, I didn't have room for a return trip to the buffet line. :) Everything was well-seasoned, but not particularly spicy.

39 S. Springboro Pike
Miamisburg, OH 45342

Not sure if the weekday buffet will have as many items, but I'll definitely check it out sometime. Highly recommended if you love Indian food, and their menu isn't just another clone of Amar India's. (Which is also good, but I find their buffet a little bland and not as interesting.)

About staph in acne on FS worker. The basic bad skin acne is caused by folliculitis. This from staph bacteria living on the skins surface and spreading. What I had meant about the worker at the gyro shop was she had white pus filled blotches on her face. While i watched she was constantantly picking at her face while talking to a co-worker. They wore no gloves and touched the food w/ bare hands. Thats what i refered to. I wasnt saying that a person should be denied permissin to work due to acne. Only that proper food handling practices were followed(not). She was probably a relative due to appearance and work ethic. I would have found a different employee and have her bussing and other tasks less sensitive to food safety!

Actually, that's incorrect. Acne and folliculitis may look similar, but they are NOT the same thing. The former is a blockage of the skin pores, the latter is an inflammation/infection of the hair follicle. Acne may lead to folliculitis, but they're not interchangeable terms.
Also, although staph is a common cause of folliculitis, not all folliculitis is caused by staph. Some are caused by other types of common bacteria, which you may already be in contact with on your own skin.

The food-handling practices you describe are indeed regrettable, but it still doesn't mean that acne automatically equals a staph infection. A discreet (and non-judgemental) word with the manager might be in order.

Has anyone been to Central Perc European Cafe in Oakwood? I hear they offer a full British afternoon tea, but they don't seem to have a website or menu listed online, and I only found a small handful of reviews. If you've had the afternoon tea (or anything else there) I'd be interested in hearing about your experiences!

Sorry to be late to this, but if you don't go to the Pine Club, go to the Oakwood Club. Steaks are equally good, they take credit cards and I think is the atmosphere a little better.

I went to Slyders tonite for the first time. Cheese Burger Fries, Onion Rings and a couple beers. Great old tavern with fresh ground Hamburgers served MEDIUM RARE thats right MEDIUM RARE. Everything was excellent including the fries and rings. Will be back often and they have a great array of patrons. Dont miss this great 60 year old Tavern...Russ

Slyders, a classic old Belmont hangout. I need to try it sometime, after all, I grew up about 4 blocks away.

News: Roc-A-Fellas (home of the Bronx Bomber Pizza) appears to have just closed its location in the Kroger plaza in Centerville. They did a robust business in the little "Dairy Queen" diner style place on the east side of Far Hills (between Franklin St. and Alex-Bell) but they inexplicably relocated to the site of the former "Sipps Cafe" next to Kroger about a year ago. I always thought that the "Sipps" location was way too fancy for a pizza and calzone place.The old location (I think it was at one time "The Hungry Elk" and was a diner before) was fun and personable. The new location seemed really sterile. Just my opinion.

They had a good pizza and will be missed.

Does anyone know of any other Roc-A-Fellas locations in the Dayton area?

I stopped going to Rock - A - Fellas when I was turned on to Troni's. No comparison and I think the best pie in Ohio. Rock-a-Fellas never really hit the mark in quality and the other dishes they served were below par. Plus the original location was always dirty. The one in Beavercreek Ohio is still open on Dayton Xenia Road which was the old DVD Pizza. Pizza is pretty good but I like Flying Pizza and of course Troni's way better...Russ

I think Troni's is about a good a pizza as one can get out of NYC area - being from Yonkers NY originally I grew up on NY style pizzas. I think both Flying Pizza and Roc-a-Fellas pizzas fall way short as their crusts are plain awful.

You are the one who turned me on to Troni's. And I agree with your assessment of Rock and Flying. But living in what I call the most deprived Pizza State in the Country. Those were the only options I had. Marions, Papa Johns, LaRosas, Dominos, Little Ceasears and Cassanos I dont think so I would rather eat the Box a Troni's Pizza comes in...Russ

We travel from Lake Waynoka in Brown County to Kettering (77 miles and an hour and a half up country 2 lane blacktop for the most part) to get our fix of Troni's about once a month - if I lived closer I would be having weight problems probably!

Does anyone remember Masters Touch Pizza in Dayton? I worked over a 100 hrs a week mu 1st trip to dayton and stayed in a motel. Every place I was near closed when i had time to eat(11pm) even wendys was shut down, They not only had a huge menu but delivered late(after midnite) I would always get the fried pork chops or chicken dinner. Either fries or tater tots,slaw and a whiye dinner roll. They were both great. I ordered 6X a week and loved it, i was hooked on the tender, juicy chops! When I moved here in 98 they were gome. Bummer
I stayed at the sleazy Royal motes just up from parkside. There were alsways hookers and crack heads running around so I never left a thing in the room
Whem I timk about it there was one of the chromed diners next door. The type built like a trailer ot RR car. They had great food but closed early. I ate there a couple of sundays. Remember that old time diner? Pure roadfood(food and atmosphere both)

That it is! Made the trip again today, with our lunchbunch group, to try out Jimmy's Italian Kitchen at 3002 Woodman Drive in Kettering. Jimmy is a brother of Troni's owner but Jimmy's pizza is terrible - the crust is mushy and tasteless. Their sausage rolls and antipasto salad were fairly good.

They are about a half mile from Troni's and I picked up a takeout pizza from the Troni's on the way back (which as usual was excellent).

I was in Dayton this past Saturday and on my way to my party, I thought I'd stop by Hooks Bar-B-Cue and get some barbecue to go and give it a try.

I do have to admit this place was in a pretty rough part of town, but on the bright side there were 3 or 4 little mom and pop barbecue places doing their deal in parking lots so it is the place to be if hunting for rogue roadfood.

At Hooks, I got a barbeque bologna sandwich, mac and cheese and pork shoulder order to go. (I stopped at a little parking lot place to sample one of the parking lot purveyor's bbq pork shoulder, but sadly, they were out)

I dug in later that nite, and while the food quality was very good, this was not true barbeque. There was not a hint of smoke flavor or smell to be found in either the bologna or the pork shoulder. None.

The bologna was a nice thick slab that had been roast as a whole tube, then pan fried after slicing, but my guess is that they have a very large grill type cooker, but no smoke box at all. The pork shoulder was moist, but again, tasted as if I had cooked it in my oven at home.

The mac and cheese was smooth and cheesy and worthy of ordering again as a side.

It was worth the side jaunt to scope out the neighborhood, but I won't be heading back anytime soon with places like Smokin' BBQ just downtown a few miles offereing real low and slow smoked BBQ.

Hooks Bar-B-Cue

EDIT: there were a few places on Salem up from Good Sam Hostipal that looked interesting. A red and white barn selling philly cheesesteaks and a hot dog stand south of that serving Vienna Beef dogs, burgers, and the like, but not a chain by any means. LMK if anyone knows more.

A shame. We've only gotten the slab of ribs at Hooks BBQ before and really enjoyed them. They didn't strike me as being fake BBQ then, but I'll have to pay more attention next time.

Trying the Brazilian place -- Cena -- the weekend after next. I promise to give a full report.

Amor de Brazil in Mason was awesome, but it was $45. Cena is $32. I'm curious to see if the quality isn't as good or it's just a better value.
