Ah. I missed it. I'm catching up after vacation.

I'll have to give it a try. My wife has a weakness for Rally's, although she hasn't indulged in some time. I've always been curious about Sonic, though.

With the Frisch's in Mt. Carmel closing, I have to wonder about the future of Roy's.......

The Napa Grille has closed. It was a beautiful restaurant. The food was fabulous, the Staff courteous and prices more than reasonable. Thank you to so many of you that made all our efforts worthwhile..

Warning to restauranteurs and potential restaurant tennants.
The Regency restaurant site is poison. The Board of The Regency will tell you that the residents are "dying" for a restaurant. That may be half true. But, the residents will not support your restaurant. Worse yet, they will kill it! They will tell you that The Napa Grille was not a "good restaurant", look at our website and judge for yourself. The Napa Grille was an excellent restaurant.

No matter what you offer, no matter how high the quality, no matter how resonable the prices, the residents will do nothing but complain. Often loudly and in front of your other Guests. They will run off your best servers with their lousy tipping. They will consistently send back half eaten plates of perfectly prepared entrees in the hopes that you will "comp" their dinners. Worst of all some will demand a white server as opposed to an equally well trained server of aftican-american or oriental heritage.

Make no mistake there are some wonderful people in the building. But they are vastly out numbered by the monsters that live there as well. Consider yourself warned!




Interesting. I can believe it. The old-line denizens of snotty ol' "Hyde Pahk" can be beastly customers, as I discovered when I worked for a Hyde Park based establishment I won't name. And there ain't no more "old line" Hyde Pahkers than at the Regency.

While I agree with you about old-line Hyde Pahkers (I lived in the less fashionable and affluent section during my adolescence so I had a snoot full of it), I went to Napa last December and wasn't impressed. I went with friends and several of our dishes were not particularly impressive despite the prices. Filets were so thickly crusted with salt that it overpowered the meat. One of our appetizers was very bland. The mark up on wine was breathtaking and, in my opinion somewhat deceptive, in that they were serving half glasses (and barely that) which is much less than you'd get for the same wine, same price anywhere else. Our waiter was darling but intrusive. We felt like asking him to pull up a chair.

J.'s was at the same location for years and did good business. I disliked the fact that they wouldn't accet reservations on weekends but. otherwise, I thought the food was excellent and prices were reasonable. So I'd take that complaint with a grain or ten of salt.

Wow, we went to Napa Grille once and liked it, but we did think the prices were a little high. We had a black server, and she was outstanding and very polite. We were celebrating, so we lived it up a little, and our bill was in the $120 range.

I can't see Roy Rogers closing. It's always booming when I go past or stop in. I love that place.

Family pack is a large 1 topping pizza, two orders of breadsticks and a 2 liter of soda for $15.


I was wondering about that. I grew up in Bloomington, IN and we had Noble Roman's everywhere including right across the street from my high school. I would go there for lunch maybe two or three times a week. I really wasn't crazy about the Monster pizza but I did really like the little deep dish Pan Ones and the big square deep dish sicilian one. Plus the breadsticks. I live in Columbus now and it is almost impossible to find breadsticks with the spicy cheese dip. Most everywhere just has pizza sauce. All of them are closed in Bloomington now but at least they influenced enough other pizza places in that town so breadsticks with cheese dip are available in a few other places. The best are at Pizza Express.

I might have driven down to Cincinnati if the pizza was the same but probably not worth it based on your assessment. Thanks for saving me some gas

While we never visited the Napa Grill, we ate at J's several times, and often saw the type of behavior described by the Napa people. We saw loud, rude old people who felt as though it was their establishment and their demands were unreasonable. I'll never forget the evening we saw an 80+ woman so drunk that she could hardly make it to the elevator. Frankly, that's why we didn't frequent J's much. I'm sure that these behaviors were the exception...we saw many well-mannered older folks dining, but the rude ones really made their presence known. BTW, we're going to a party tonight, and the former Bounty Seafood proprietor is doing a lobster bake for us. Have heard much about it, and I'm eager to try it.

I noticed in the enquirer hot dog article that the Weiner Haus in Crestview Hills has changed to the more "upscale" Bavarian Grille. Whatever...

Also, in the overlooked burger department, try an all-year Dairy Queen Brazier for a great made-to-order burger. The ones in Wilder or Hebron are never disappointing.

I've been meaning to put in a good word for a place we eat at regularly, but I don't think I have yet... It's Mike's Chili & Gyros, in Hamilton on Rte. 4 just a stone's throw from the Sonic drive-in. They do Cincinnati chili, sandwiches, gyros and other stuff. We like the chili a lot, but I honestly can't say how it compares to Blue Ash (been too long since I was there) or Camp Washington (never been). Husband usually gets the regular gyro with feta cheese, which is good. I switch between that, 4-way (with onions), or their Chicago beer burger, which is a 1/2 lb. monster with grilled onions and cheese on it. Messy, but tasty!

Good place for a quick lunch/dinner stop if you're shopping at Jungle Jim's. The place is almost always quiet when we go, they do most of their business drive-through, I think.

So a "Grille" denotes a more upscale restaurant than a "Haus". That's good to know, but I haven't noticed any change in the place. I have had some seriously good hot dogs and wursts there. The chili dog is excellent, and huge.

Going to have to check it out.

...and I finally did.

Unfortunately, this is nondescript pizza no better than (maybe not as good as) a decent frozen pizza. The crust in particular was very cardboard-like

Ah well. If you saw the outside of this place, you'd have high roadfood-like hopes for it, as I did. Definitely a single proprietor type joint.....

Any of you east siders been into the beverage drive through named Hoover's Harvey's on Kellogg near Lunken?

I keep seeing signs up like they have a hot food counter as well....hamburger, dogs, steak hoagies, and the like.....haven't managed to stop by yet because my route home takes me a different way, and they don't seem to be open at breakfast (inbound to work) time when I pass by

Is that near Annie's? Haven't seen it, but I haven't been by there in a few months. Sounds intriguing.

I see they're putting in the drywall now at the Sonic-to-be in Eastgate. Didn't see an opening date anywhere on the sign.

I wasn't honestly aware they were a "national" chain (albeit they're[url='http://www.substationii.com/locationssub.htm']mostly in the Carolinas[/url]) until I did a search to see if I could find a local review I recall reading from a few years back

http://www.substationii.com/alltheway.htm

Had a #19 done up "all the way", which is the closest approximation they have to a standard italian sub. I thought the meat and toppings were very good and very generous, but the bread was not up to par. Overall pretty good, but not worthy of a special trip.

Anyone else eaten there?


I stopped in once and tried the cheese steak because I'm always on the lookout for a good one around here. Unfortunately, Penn Station is still the best I've come across. [|)]Anyway, my heart sunk when I saw the meat go in the microwave and I knew I was in for disappointment. The bread wasn't very good and the steak was obviously tasteless.

I knew I took a risk ordering a cheese steak from a place like that. I thought they might have utilized a grill like Jersey Mike's. I'm sure their other sandwiches are a little better, but I never bothered to go back.

Ate at City Barbecue in Hyde Park today - was very surprised at the great taste that came from this chain. The sides were very average but the beef brisket was sensational - very tender meat with a great smoky flavor. It passed the no sauce test with flying colors but I did sauce up my sandwich and it was fantastic. Has anyone else eaten here? My only gripe was the cost - $9 for a medium sized sandwich and two sides.

The Graeter's ice cream counter has been removed from Cafe Martin (on Walnut across from the Cincinnati Main Library). They say that sales did not support the cost of having it there.

They said it has nothing to do with the imminent return of Grater's to downtown Cincinnati (on Fountain Square. I will not comment further :-)

The menu has changed somewhat at Cafe Martin, but the excellent pizza remains, albeit the price is a bit higher and they don't seem to add all the herbs and garlic to the outer crust. I'll ask about that next time. They've added a burger (8.95) and a steak sandwich (9.95) as well as fries to the permanent menu. One of the wait staff told me that daily specials will return shortly, when everyone is acclimated to the new menu.

Me and my two young'uns travelled up to the Maineville location of Sonic (way north on Montgomery Road) last night and had a fairly bad experience. Not one of our three burgers was right, and all had to be re-made. No ketchup was provided for my daughters, even after a second request.

so

here's to hoping the Eastgate location is more like Hamilton's, and far less like Mainville's.

I pretty much share your conclusions - great meat, good sauce, average sides, wish it were a tad bit less pricey

I thought I remembered you hitting on that but could not remember...we were originally headed to Chipotle, but the line was about 40 people long. People were parked on the sidewalk. We also debated Taco Casa but that lost to City BBQ as well.

Also, if anyone is looking for Indian food downtown, we ate at Akash recently and had a great meal. Entertainment book has a discount if you eat in.

I would agree with both of you from the Columbus locations. For the sides, I actually really like the green beans. They don't look that appealing but they have great flavor. The rest that I have tried are pretty average.

I am still upset that they stopped serving their smoked wings in February. Wings are hard to smoke without getting the skin to tough but they pulled it off. But I guess they were just too much effort and people weren't buying them. Now I just go for the brisket. I got the smoked turkey once. It was decent. Maybe a little dry. And the pork is pretty good but they have no idea how to make Carolina sauce so don't bother with it.

I tried City BBQ at a festival on the east side last year, and I remember that the brisket rocked.

Went by Eastgate Sonic, and they have the drywall in and the faux stone exterior is about one-quarter complete. They seem to do most of the work on it over the weekend, believe it or not.

I know this is a ways from Cincinnati, but I have to mention this place just outside of Dayton that my gf and I ate at a couple weeks ago called Giovanni's. Some of the best Italian I've ever eaten, and I grew up in Chicago. Every aspect of the experience was top notch. Atmosphere, prices, portions, service, and of course food quality.

We got garlic bread, I had veal saltimbocca, my girlfriend had beef tips marsala, and we split an order of three-cheese polenta, and she had two drinks, and the bill came to $48. I tipped $12 because the service was so exceptional. And our meals both came with a soup or salad. I had the Italian wedding soup, and it was more meatball than soup -- which was a good thing.

I kid you not: I had half of my veal left over, which I devoured later that night, and since she only ate about 1/3 of her marsala and we only got through about 1/4 of the polenta, we still had enough left over for both of us to eat an entire meal of those items the next night.

Here's the site if any of you are ever on the east side of Dayton: http://www.villadigiovanni.com/Villa/villa-home.htm

You're not kidding about the downtown location. I found it completely by accident just roaming around when I lived there.

I don't know if they are affiliated with the one of the same name at Harper's Point, but that location is terrible in terms of both quality and price.

It's $8.48 for a half-pound brisket sandwich with two sides, according to their menu. I always buy the brisket and the pulled pork by the pound and make my own sandwiches at home, saving money.

I really like their greens with pulled pork, and I love their macaroni and cheese. I've been known to stop in and pick up a quart of the macaroni and cheese and a pint of the greens to have all by themselves.

TJ & DL: don't keep me in suspense - - - where exactly is this hidden taco place downtown?? I live dt & would love to try it (although my husband doesn't want me to walk alone north of about Central, but I'm not going to stir up that debate any further.........)

Also - we ate at Akash (sp?), the Indian place on 6th for the buffet lunch. We were there a little late (maybe 1:30'ish) and it was pretty sparce. Service not that great, either. I want to try it for dinner with the regular menu.

Did have GREAT sushi @ Ko Sho on 9th last week. The lunch menu (I only looked at the sushi) was pricey, but it was very good. My problem is I can order a burger in one place & never seem to finish it, but when you put sushi in front of me, I just cannot seem to fill up! I guess my appetite is what made it pricey.

Last question: did Rise & Shine close? I searched through the Enquirer website & couldn't find anything about it, but tried to go there for breakfast on Thursday & the sign said "Closed for Maintence". That's downtown code for "out of business", right?

Taco Caso is located in the conjunction of allies behind 7th Street and Sycamore. The allies are named North and New, respectively. If you are coming from Gilbert, cross the viaduct and then turn left on 7th. New Street is just beyond a parking lot and six story building
at 7th and Sycamore. Turn left onto New St....Taco Caso is literally feet away.
