When I'm in the area, I wander in and end up with a phenomenal meal, EVERY TIME. When the patio is open, I enjoy sitting out there for my meal. Staff are so friendly and helpful.

Fun, quirky little joint that will surprise you with their tasty fare! Sat windowside with the family and enjoyed the downtown view and a vegetarian sandwich with hummus and chips. My husband loved the meaty brisket sandwich and cheesy buffalo mac!

I wanted Cincinnati Chili on my quick trip to Cincy so I was a little disappointed when I found out they didn't have real Cincinnati Chili but my disappointment was short-lived. Incredible Veggie Chili (with a little kick), good service, down-home feel. Great place!
