The Root Beer Stand
11566 Reading Road
Sharonville, OH 45241
Open Mon-Sat 10-9, Sun 11-9
It has been years since I had been there and although it was only 11:30am on a Sunday, I had to try the goods. I had the 6" hotdog with chili and cheese. Hotdog and bun were very big for the 'small" offering and the dog came with mustard, chili and cheese and wrapped in wax paper. Chili was not typical cincy chili, but a blend very common to the ice cream stand genre with cincy chili hints, but definately home made. I enjoyed it to no end.
I also had the root beer of course, and had to get a to-go cup due to time, but most suggest having in the glass mugs to improve flavor and experience.
Sweet yet earthy, the root beer did not dissappoint. If you have never had home made root beer, you mave have to adjust your taste buds a tad from the bottled stuff, but after a few sips the reason these folks have been doing it since 1957 rings home.
I need to get back and try a few more items and get pics so i'll keep you posted.
Prices are reasonable and it's a place I'd suggest for everyone to at least try once.
