You left out Dixie Chili (Newport, Covington, Erlanger) and Chili Time (St. Bernard).  Also, while Empress may have once been one of the "big three", each one that is left is independent and quite different from one another.

If you disqualify Dixie you would have to disqualify Blue Ash as well as they now have two locations.

Dictator

Hi, all.  I was wondering if any of you had recently eaten at the Grand Finale in Glendale, and, if so, what did you think of the food and service?  I ate there probably twenty years ago and thought it was all right (granted, my palate was quite unrefined in those days).  At the wife's request, I made a reservation there for our tenth anniversary meal.  I hope it proves to be a good choice.  If I had my druthers, we'd be going to Carlo & Johnny or Nada, or some such.  But it's not about pleasing *me*, of course, but about making my wife happy.
 
Thanks!
 
Oh, and I've always loved RoadFood, and I thought it was just about time to get my duff and start posting.


Haven't been there in about 10 years, but I've always liked it. Service has never been a problem -- it just isn't anywhere close to where I live, which is why it's been so long since I've been back.

Dictator, Grand Finale has had new owners for several years now but I haven't noticed any decline in the quality of the food or the service. I ate there two months ago and it was just as good as it has always been.

I don't care for the coziness of the seating in the main room so I always request a table in the back room. It's more spacious and quiet. You might want to call this afternoon and request that if it is really important to you.

I saw an effusively positive review of this location, on Yahoo, I think. I am not far from it and I have thought of trying a slice.

But I looked at the menus for Jet's pizza and the photos make it look like a Domino's wheel o' cheese and bread. :(

And I thought it was just the one location on Mason-Montgomery. The fact that it's part of a chain automatically makes me suspicious...

Did you ever try MV Pizza? Their web site is scary...

Made my first ever stop at New Orleans to go today

A glazed tilapia poboy with sweet potato fries (1$ upcharge) for me

A fried catfish poboy with standard waffle fries for the wife

In a word - excellent. 

The regular poboy is enough to feed 3 people, imho, and very very good.  The wife was particularly impressed with the tartar sauce on hers, claiming it the best she'd ever had.  For me the sweet potato fries were the star of the show.

The wife is already asking to go back...I may make her a roadfooder someday after all

I started to do something like this a few years back, but my son decided that he was tired of chili every Tuesday night.  I agree that Dixie would make a worthwhile addition and Chili Time in St. Bernard is a MUST for the occasional whole pepper that you'd inevitably get in your chili.  Good stuff.
 
Gourmet Chili - It's been several years since I visited, but it was an "interesting" place with decent chili. 
 
Pleasant Ridge Chili - One of my favorites when I was still located in Norwood.  Had some screwed up orders (gravy cheese fries? GAG!) but the chili was always excellent.
 
I miss the good old Chili Company.  Only place I've ever been to that had a slaw dog or a slaw way. ;-)

We have recently made the acquaintance of Everything Bagels, in the Eastgate area, around the corner from Ban Thai.

I have been pretty impressed with how they run their business. The bagels are not the best I've ever had, but they're quite good, large and with many varied flavors. They crust up nicely when toasted.

The breakfast sandwiches we had Sunday were excellent. I had an everything bagel with veg cream cheese, lox, onion, egg, and capers. It was swell.

The rest of the menu looks good too, and I am told by friends who frequent the place that the soups are outstanding.

The company has also been extremely generous to our local schools, providing bagels and spreads for standardized test weeks at the two high schools and for the music competition held at our high school a couple weekends back.

Prices are very good. I recommend them highly.

The Rising Roll on Hunt Rd in Blue Ash is not yet open.  I drove by it the other day on my way to Kroger and it is still full of construction equipment with no sign of it being done anytime soon from what I could tell.  I did not stop and get out of my car to see if there were any signs with dates or other messages on them, but from the parking lot they still looked far from completed.


Rising Roll's website seems to indicate that the store is now open and even has a page for online ordering.  They either hustled to finish the store or else their website is wrong.  Anyway, I'll see if I can get up there in a few weeks and give a report if someone wants to confirm that they're open.

I dropped in there yesterday for lunch...  The line was almost to the door but the service was pretty quick for those that didn't order hot sandwiches.  I had a cuban sandwich and a side of their potato salad.  The potato salad was pretty good, but the serving was pretty small...like 4 normal size bites worth.  The sandwich was pretty good and was a good size.  It had what I would expect on a cuban sandwich outside of Cuba or Florida where they know how to make them correctly..  It was definitely the best cuban sandwich that I have had in Cincinnati, but of course that isn't saying too much.

I will have to go back there again and try out some of their other sandwiches and wraps.  Their salads are on display in the cooler case along side the line and they are very large, so it looks like you at least get a lot of salad for your money there and they aren't skimpy.

Terry's Turf Club 2009/04/14 13:08:05
I know the burgers at Terry's are good, but my last visit has me wondering how soon I'll be back.  The service was flat out horrible, and rude.  We were there at 6 PM on a friday, and were pressured to order quickly. There were 7 in our party, and we were forced to move from an 8 person table to a six person table after we were seated.
 
The burgers were good, but exceptionally greasy.  I still don't care for the fries.  Soggy and greasy.  Our bill came, and it was impossible to decipher.  All it had were hash marks, then a total for the line.  There were no words at all.  When we asked our waitress what each line item represented, she scolded us and said "no separate checks!".   Then she grabbed the check from us, and broke it out.  We did not ask her for separate checks, or to break it out for us, simply to identify the line items so we could break out our own check.
 
Our total was $110, but by the time she was done breaking it out, it mysteriously became $140.  That's $20 each for a burger and a couple beers.  Certianly not worth getting yelled at for.
 
Overall, one of the worst service experiences in my memory.   The place was packed though, and there was a line waiting, so I doubt they'll change anything anytime soon.  People seem to be convinced this place is awesome.  It just cracks me up to see all the Hyde Park'ers think they're "cool" because they're going to the little dive joint that has quietly become the most overpriced burger in the city.
 
(By contrast, I was at Quatman Cafe on Saturday.  2 huge burgers, each with a generous portion of perfect shoestring fries, I had two beers and the girl had one.  Total with tax and a >20% tip was $20.00)

After eating at New Orleans To Go our group went to Marina's International Deli  in Symmes Township ( a couple of miles North of I-275 at 11426  Montgomery Road):

http://www.marinasdeli.com/

Their website has just been updated recently and gives you a great amount of detail on the food and beverages this wonderful place sells.

Here is the cold cuts, fish, salads and cheese menu board:



They have some great deli items (I love their mushroom salad, several of their meat cold cuts, their liver pate, their European Potato Salad and many many other items they stock).

If you are in the area you might wish to check them out.  They will make you a sandwich which can be eaten on premises or taken out - they also bake their own breads.

Chi-nnati posted on page 67 (on 2/28/09) that they would be opening in late April. Chicago style pizza, with a thin crust also available. They have really done a nice job with the exterior of the place. I hope they do as nice of a job in the kitchen.

I was sad to hear about Gajah Wong, primarily because I'm a Northsider and hate to see one of the "good" businesses closing up shop. Hopefully, another tax preparation or payday loan store won't be taking its place. Those and the Taco Bell/KFC are the bane of Hamilton Avenue's existence. We ate at GW a couple of months ago and enjoyed it, although I found it to be a bit overpriced for the amount of food we received. I will especially miss the delicious toasted coconut mixture that can be spooned over or mixed into pretty much everything else.

I, too, am looking forward to trying this place when it opens.

By the way, the term "Chicago-style pizza" obviously refers to deep dish, but I grew up there and nine times out of 10 when we got pizza, it was thin crust.

I think there's a misconception out there that all Chicago pizza is deep dish, but most places near where I grew up don't even make deep dish.

Had to get that off my chest.

Re:WhereToEat: Cincinnati and N.Ky (open chat) 2009/04/22 11:11:24
I've heard this several times before from other Chicago natives, and I think it is an unreasonable stance, and here's why

1) the average person (who has not lived for years in Chicago) will not be able to tell the difference between a thin crust pizza from Chicago and a thin crust pizza from anywhere else.

and

2) this same person will definitely be able to tell the difference between a thin from anywhere and a stuffed or deep dish style pizza

and

3) Since these two styles (deepdish and stuffed) are most assuredly from Chicago, and quite distinct from other styles, they get labeled "Chicago style".

Similarly, there are many other styles of chili available in Cincinnati that are definitely not "Cincinnati-style" chili.   Not a problem.

In any case, we should return the topic to Cincinnati stuff.  We can continue the "what is Chicago style" debate in another thread, if deemed desirable.

southern grub

Just on the other side of SR 32 in eastgate there was a guy set up in the parking lot selling bbq. It's back open! much better than City BBQ even on their good days. He expanded the menu a little bit too. It's on Glen-Este Withamsville Road just south of 32. He is now in the Shopping plaza there at kennedy's landing. When you're facing it on the far left. You can't miss the huge pink pig on the front of the building. no smoker in the front anymore so make sure you are looking for the pig. Its still a simple place only seats about 20 but the BBQ is great. He even has a lunch special on weekdays from 11-2. you get a Pulled Pork sandwich, bag of chips and a soda for $5.00. there are no substitutions on the the special but the sandwich it self is over a half pound so bring a good appitite. they are closed on Mondays but the other 6 days are some mighty good eating. If you had been there back in the summer your in for a treat now. He has added Mac and Cheese (From scratch) Green beans (like grandma's if you grew up south of the mason dixie) Corn Bread ($0.50) and also from scratch. He also offers a (BRUNSWICK STEW) like a Kentucky Burgoo. easily described as delicious. Its has pork, beef and chicken all smoked and stewed with onions, garlic, tomatoes, and a mix of veggies. Don't be fooled though it is probably half meat. really rich and hearty. he was out of take out menus when i was there but i'll stop back in and try to scan one to post. He still has ribs, also rib tips, chicken, pork and brisket. you won't be dissapointed.
Has anyone tried this place?

Here's the scoop on the new pizza place in Kenwood, :

 
   
 

Deep Dish!
Posted by PollyCampbell at 4/22/2009 11:40 AM EDT on Cincinnati.com
I mentioned a few days ago a new place called Chi-nnati. It wasn't until owner Don Laden called back and left a message that I realized how it should be pronounced, and once I realized that, I knew what it was. Shy-nnati. As in  Shy-Town, as in Chicago, as in deep dish pizza. My husband will be so happy. To him, a pizza only really gets good at about an inch and a half.
This takes over the former Jalapeno's at 7980 Hosbrook Road--it's been transformed to a more Italian atmosphere. There's a bar, but Laden said it's intended to be very family-friendly. (And no TVs in the dining room. Thank you!)
They've developed two crusts: the buttery cornmeal Chicago deep-dish crust, and another meant for thin pizzas. He said a pizza will take at least a half an hour to make--but they've got salads and appetizers to eat while you wait for them to make it. Also Italian sandwiches like Italian beef, meatball subs. And gelato for dessert.
It's a big spot: 7,200 square feet, with room for 250 diners. Open 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Sunday, 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Monday=Thursday, 11 a.m.-midnight Friday and Saturday. Pies will range from $8.95 for a simple 10-inch up to low 20's for a big gourmet deep-dish.
They open a week from today.

No pizza takes at least a  half hour to make.  This is a come on to get you to buy other stuff and ruin your appetite for pizza.

I wonder if the thin crust is of the same ingredients.

Cornmeal??

RE: WhereToEat: Cincinnati and N.Ky (open chat) 2009/04/22 16:24:48
True Chicago style pizza takes LOTS longer to cook and NY style or FF style pizza.

Each pizza is between 2 and 3 inches thick, starting with raw ingredients.  I would gladly wait that long for a true Chicago style pizza.

You go to Burt's in Chicago and you wait at least that long if not longer (especially on weekends)
And yes Chicago style pizza dough has a small amount of cornmeal in it

Incorrect.

It'd be correct to say that no pizza to your particular liking takes that long, but the more generalized statement that "no pizza" takes this long is manifestly incorrect

I like thin, and I like thick.  Sometimes at Mio's we'll get one of each.  We did so at Troni's as well.

I (like CK) will gladly wait for a thicker style pizza when I am in the mood for that particular style.

No pizza takes at least a  half hour to make.

Incorrect.

It'd be correct to say that no pizza to your particular liking takes that long, but the more generalized statement that "no pizza" takes this long is manifestly incorrect
So I am learning.  Correct - a NY style pie generally takes about 20 minutes from start to finish.

Actually, many NYC pies are cooked in 5 minutes or less

for example
http://slice.seriouseats.com/archives/2004/10/bringing_a_oney.html
"it only takes about four minutes for a pie to cook in the coal oven at Patsy's"

Can we move the topic of thin versus thick pies to a thread of it's own?  This technically has nothing to do with Cincinnati

I've never had a deep dish pizza in Chicago that took less than a half hour to bake so I don't find that unreasonable at all. I also think Bonk's post had merit since most people outside of Chicago only think of Chicago Style pizza as being deep dish/stuffed. Since Chi-natti will be selling both deep dish and thin crust the point is relevant. Since we are discussing a Chicago Style pizza parlor that is opening in Cincinnati I think the topic is perfectly suited for this thread.

It has to do with Cinci, in that it is very hard to find a good NY style pizza pie here.  Only Dewey's Pizza comes close.

And for us native New Yorkers that is a terrible thing to have to live with daily - especially those of us in the boonies of Brown County.

Indubitably - just think how good they might be if they offered New York style pizza pies too.  I might even consider checking them out - but the cornmeal thing sounds scary.

I think you will find, if you search for threads with my involvement, that i like to talk about a wide variety of subjects, not just those related to Cincinnati

That said, the topic of how long pizza takes to bake, or whether cornmeal should or should not be involved, etc etc are not Cincinnati-related topics. 

I'm not a mod or admin here, and the fact that I started this thread gives me exactly zero more rights than anyone else here.  Nada.  As it should be....I am just a member here like anyone else.  That said, as the topic starter, I would definitely like to keep this particular thread on topic as much as possible, and have done my best to redirect the thread back on topic many times in the past. 

I will add that threads that drift well of topic tend to be locked and/or deleted by the mods, as is there right and their responsibility. 

So yes, I'd like to see a return to topicality.

I guess they don't know they would do better with New York style pizza pies.
You seem fixated on "NY Pizza"...understandable given your screen name, but unrealistic.  People in Cincinnati just don't care - or even know what "New York style" means - so "they would do better" is a very presumptive statement.  Just an observation.

But that's not why I replied...I was wondering if you ever tried the pizza at NYPD Pizza.  Considering their name (which stands for "New York Pizza Delivery"), perhaps they would have what you are looking for.  I'm familiar with the one in Northside (great hoagies!) but looking online today, I see they now have locations in Cheviot and Grosebeck too.

OK.... glad to see my question about Chi-nnati spark so much discussion... I have another question which I hope will also get a great response.    

SO ..after years of being OVERWEIGHT.. my daughter and I are working hard to take it off.  In that endeavor we are allowing ourselves 1 meal a week,  where we can eat what we truly crave/miss the most.  What we have found however is that what we are craving are the tastes of things not easily duplicated at home.  And we are still trying to be careful about calories and the real problem  SODIUM..  (did you know that a dang Bloomin Onion has over 3000 calories and more than 6000mg of salt!!!!!)   

Dim Sum hit the mark perfectly  (no way I'm making that at home...)   Emanu's Ethiopian also was a success.. We ate at TAZ and while we enjoyed it.. it felt like I had opened up the salt shaker over my meal.

So I'm looking for ideas ..

I tried them back in my days of living in Westwood and found them about as bad as Flying Pizza and all the other NY pizza pretenders in Greater Cincinnati.

I dine weekly with friends from TN and VT and over the years have been trying to educate them about NY pizza but I have made little progress  - all they chatter about is how many toppings they want and which ones.  It drives me batty at times.  I cannot speak for the rest of the population of the city but I am sure most of them love the cardboard/cracker  pizzas from LaRosas and Dominos etc etc.

Junior Burger' * Total Posts : 17 * Joined: 4/2/2009 * Location: Franklin, OH Reply to messageMessage Options Re:WhereToEat: Cincinnati and N.Ky (open chat) - Wed, 04/22/09 7:02 PM Just got back from trying the recently opened (well, back in February, according to the owner) El Havanero Cuban restaurant in Fairfield (on Rt. 4 just down the street from Taqueria Mercado/Panaderia a la Mexicana). It was quite tasty. The wife and I both ordered the El Havanero sandwich (basically, a traditional Cuban) and, while we've never actually eaten at a true, authentic Cuban establishment on any of our Florida trips (yes, we do need to remedy this), I can say that the sandwich was, without doubt, the best Cuban I've ever had. We got two GIGANTIC sandwiches, a basket of fries to split, and soft drinks, all for $25.00 even. The owner said that they would be getting their liquor license in a few days and that they were going to start having bands in to play, starting with one from Miami. The establishment is very nicely decorated (granted, I'm no Christopher Lowell) and spacious, and the menu has a lot of very interesting and tasty-sounding dishes to choose from. Therefore, we will return. (Probably within the week.) http://www.elhavanero.net/index.html
Man that sounds good!!!!!!!!

I think the quality and taste of pizza pies in Greater Cinci is very important to those of us who care about pizza.  I cannot believe you look askance at such discussions.

No chili at Jungle Jim's just a break from eating so much chili, plus there are several people coming from out of town that would like to go to Jungle Jim's.

So, so nice to see yucca on a menu up here. (I grew up in Ft. Lauderdale.) I may have to go here for lunch today! If they do fried plantains with the garlic dipping sauce, they will instantly become one of my new favorites.

Melt in Northside. Nowhere near as pretentious as the Web site makes it look. I have never had a bad sandwich there, but I do find the quality and consistency of their salad dressings to vary a bit.

Fair enough. Sorry for my part in causing the topic to stray.
 
I just didn't want people thinking that's the only type of pizza Chicago has. If it was, everyone there would weight about 600 pounds.
 
My objection to most sauces in CINCINNATI  is they don't use enough garlic.
 
Portobella's had the best in the area, IMO, and now it's gone.
