Just the same

We had to stop by an old favorite restaurant from 20 years ago during a recent trip home for the holidays. This restaurant never changes, I am glad to say. The Oh Boy burgers are as juicy and sloppy as I remember. The extra sauce is great for dipping french fries. It's not a fancy restaurant, but... read more

OH Boy restaurant has been around for a long time. It is a place that we go often for their hamburgers. The sauce is amazing and it makes the hamburgers so much better than anywhere else. The breaded mushrooms and their onion rings are great too. The atmosphere is still the same as it was many years ago. Nothing fancy... More

The food always comes out quickly, and is always hot and good!! The servers are always friendly and accommodating. This restaurant is great for lunch or dinner. It is a great... More

This was a so so hamburger, not much flavor or sear on the burger. I was expecting more flavor in the special sauce. It was basically mayo and a ton of it. I had to take napkins and wipe most of the sauce off and in doing so, I also lost most of my lettuce. All in all I was... More

On a visit to family we were told that we had to try the Oh Boy Hamburger at Midway. We all ordered hamburgers and can't say that I found it to be that great. I ordered the Super Oh Boy and it was good but not great. I also ordered the onion rings and it was a small order of... More

The Oh Boy is almost as much a part of Elyria as Heman Ely! The double decker with the Oh boy sauce was around as long as the Big Mac. Only the Oh Boy is better!

Small little diner that takes you back to a different era...Not haute cuisine by any standards, but comfort food at its best. Fried everything, oh boy sauce on the burgers, fresh pies...standards that grandma used to make like chicken paprikash and stuffed cabbage. Good food, plenty of it, and reasonable prices.

This place is an institution! Could use update in decor but a friendly, neighborhood place with lots of good choices.
