Cincinnati Restaurants? I am goin this weekend.

You MUST eat some Graeter's ice cream. (Graeter's ice cream was featured on the Food Network.) I grew up in Cincinnati and remember eating Graeter's ice cream. It is expensive but it is a MUST when you are in Cincinnati.

Frisch's was started in Cincinnati. It's a family - friendly hamburger restaurant.

Skyline or Goldstar Chili are definitely kid friendly, if you would like to try an entirely different type of chili. Don't know about Zip's. Honeybee is so right about Graeter's! Best ice cream I've ever had but just a touch more expensive than you're average Dairy Queen. It's worth it, though! Avoid Fuddrucker's, it's just an overpriced burger joint. Frisch's is much better! :D

I've never been to a Frisch's, but we have Fuddrucker's here in PA and I wouldn't rush to go there. There are a lot of other places for better burgers at better prices. Have a good trip, Bang! :D

Cincinnati is famous for its chili so I think you should eat some while you are there. I agree with the overpricing at Fuddruckers, but they do make a tasty burger.

Thanks for the tips. My friend does not appear to be very adventurous and wants to eat at Applebees and Bob Evans. Ughhhhhh :!:

Well, Bob Evans is an Ohio original, I suppose you could look at it that way. :roll:

I second the idea of suspending your concept of chili and hitting Skyline. In other places I've lived this was called "Greek chili" or "Greek spaghetti sauce". But it is truly an ethnic/local favorite. Do NOT think Texas, do not think Mexican. This dish has Greek roots with heavy USA influence and is great once you get over the Texas thing.

As a matter of fact, I'm making some right now for my Christmas party!

You're saying that Cinci chili is from Greek recipes? I'm intrigued!
