G&R Tavern

103 N. Marion St., Waldo, OH - (740) 726-9685
In this friendly community tavern, the bologna is sliced thick and is seriously flavorful stuff, a pork and beef blend that is garlic-scented and fatty enough that when it sizzles in a skillet, it develops a wickedly savory crust enveloping the moist meat within. G & R loads it into a sandwich with sweet pickles and onion (a great condiment combo), or your choice of mustard, mayonnaise, or tomato.

Gourmet bologna is a culinary oxymoron, but this sandwich, built around a thick slice of G&R's house-made bologna, hoists the humble lunchmeat into a class of its own. Note the essential condiments: mustard, pickle, onion.(buffetbuster photo)

G&R is a humble place, but its reputation for bologna sandwiches has achieved near legendary status among traveling foodies. (buffetbuster photo)

G&R is Waldo's community tavern, but the locals are accustomed to travelers stopping in to sample the famous sandwich. (buffetbuster photo)
