The oh boy burger is a taste less hunk of meat despite what Michael Simon says on TV I will not eat one again.

This restaurant has not changed in years! Sure they update the paint and paper on the walls, but other than that, it's the same old charm. Oh Boy Sauce is great and I would eat it on just about everything. And they will service it with just about anything so that works for me! Staff always seem to remember you... More

On a first time visit to Elyria, we consulted Trip Advisor. It took us to a clean and friendly diner famous for their Oh Boy burgers. They did not disappoint and we loved the Oh Boy sauce. We added sauerkraut balls and fried mushroom to complete our experience. The waitress made us feel at home and gave us the history... More

I grew up on Midway Oh Boy. When I come to Elyria to visit my family, I try to stop by. The restaurant itself is dated, but the food is good. The service is a little cheeky, but that's part of the charm. If you're in Elyria, looking for a non-chain, give this place a try.

We stopped in for an Oh Boy sandwich and got the platter. As always, hot and delicious. I was surprised that the server was a little distracted when I asked about the other specials - she had another customer on her mind and her abruptness was noticeable. I would have gladly waited until she had a moment. Also, a lot... More

My girlfriend loves this restaurant, myself it's ok for once in a while. It does take you back to an old fashion diner experience. I have eaten here probably 20 times or so over the years. You won't get a bad meal for the price but not a lot of health choices to pick from.

Oh Boys are very good burgers but you have to try the chicken paprikash soup - best I have ever had!

As we always do when we travel, we try to find something non-chain and unique to the city we're visiting. The online reviews took us to Midway Oh Boy. I personally love little diners like this. The music boxes on the tables were a neat novelty...old school for sure but contributed to the ambience. The staff was extremely friendly and... More

Midway Oh Boy has been around as long as I can remember, and the reason is simple. They are a great, reliable and affordable place to go to for a good meal. Not a bad thing on the menu! Everything is good and won't disappoint.
