TJ, thanks for the heads up about Jim Dandy...You nailed it...service was snippy, the sides (red beans and rice & potato salad) tasted as tho they were canned at best.  The pulled pork tho was really fairly tasty...smoky and moist.  Sauce was a meh! and the bread pudding was laughable.  But it filled the spot where lunch should've gone.
and thanks for the call too....

    I'm between a skyline and a big boy..next to a BBQ joimt😁

    The bbq joint is Jim Dandy's.  It was originally pretty good but gets very poor reviews of late, for several years now.  Not recommended.  If you do not have plans for dinner tonight, I recommend you head east towards sharonville, where you can choose from

    --several good indian restaurants
    --a very good Taiwanese restaurant called the House of Sun http://www.urbanspoon.com...ouse-of-Sun-Cincinnati
    --roadfood-listed http://www.therootbeerstand.com/ , which should be open by now (call first) (get the chili dogs and a root beer, skip the burgers)

    or of course you get get all chili-fied right away, and just hit Skyline right next door

    There is also an Izzy's a few miles away if you want corned beef/pastrami/potato pancakes: http://www.urbanspoon.com...-Park/Izzys-Cincinnati

    The Root Beer Stand is indeed open...went there Wednesday evening...cash only!

      Hi everyone...crazy busy this week, but I'd love to meet you at 3:00 at the sign museum. I'm so looking forward to meeting you folks...I've been reading this forum and posting a little for 10 years. So Cajun King, please add me to your group for the sign museum. My kids are already asking "you're going off with people you met on the internet?"

       
      You're all set...the list is updated...looking forward to meeting you on Saturday!

                  Made it safe and sound...What's going on..anyone
                  A group of us are getting together at Terry's Turf Club just before 11am, then moving on from there.  Lots of stops today on the "unofficial" tour.

                      Looking forward to seeing you again Jerry!
                       
                      Being the magnanimous individuals we are, buffetbuster and I will most likely share the Schnecken wealth with the group when there's an appropriate, non-chili moment.

                      P.S. We're hoping to see as many Cincinnati Roadfooders as possible here in your own town.  Even if you can't make a commitment for the whole day, maybe you can join the group for just a couple of stops.
                       
                      Anyone interested in staying in touch with me during the day tomorrow should send me a PM and I'll give you my cellphone number.

                          Ava and I got to town about 1400 Friday. I crashed for 2 hours and then headed downtown for a Reds game. After the game the 4 of us went to Camp Washington for.... Yep you guessed it Chili!

                          Now in bed relaxing and getting my game face on for tomorrow.

                                Tumbleweed, jjjrfoodie, TJ Jackson, et al,
                                Sorry so many locals were unable to join the fun Saturday, you were certainly missed!
                                 
                                Mrs. Roadhouse and I are still formulating plans for Sunday before we hit the road.  If anyone is available for lunch or other early afternoon activities, feel free to PM me and I'll forward my cellphone # for further discussion and plans.
                                 
                                Hope to see some Cincy folks on Sunday!

                                  Tried to PM you but it came back saying that you didn't accept messages.
                                  We do seem to have a history of missing one another !
                                  Have a safe trip back, how many cases of chili are
                                  You carrying with you ?

                                    My first Roadfood event, and I'm so glad I went! I met some great folks and had some interesting food-centric conversations. The food, of course, was sublime. Thanks so much, Buddy Roadhouse, for my bottle of BBQ sauce and how nice to know I can get replenishments at Jungle Jim's. Safe travels, everyone!

                                          Enjoyed meeting all of you folks I've conversed with for years. I wish I could've hit more stops -- this is just a busy time of year for me, and this year has been especially busy for me/us.
                                           
                                          I hope everyone got home OK and I'd love to meet up again sometime when life isn't so chaotic.

                                            Your thoughts are much appreciated Gary!  What terrible timing to get sick, but it happens.  Had Cousin Johnny and wanderingjew not been with me, I have no idea how I would have gotten home.  Feeling much better now, even though I did cancel my weekend plans to Kansas City.
