fast food chili. Local favorite. Very inexpensive and tasty. Wouldn't make it a regular stop but worth a try. Chili up to 5 ways with beans, onion, spaghetti base and topped with a pound of airy shredded cheddar cheese.

We met our daughter and son-in-law and granddaughter (there to have a nice Sunday afternoon together. Unfortunately the server seemed annoyed we were there...and didn’t want to answer questions. The food was good. Again, when it was time to leave, we had to track him down to get our bill.

This place is a little whole in the wall bar, it is literally at the end of a strip mall. The service is great! The food is fantastic! The wings are well sauced with crispy skin! The burgers are juicy and delicious and the fries are always hot and crispy! My husband and I love this place. My only two complaints are the dining area is very small, but there are plans to expand. The beer selection is small. If you like dark beers you will not find them here, but all the standards are on tap!

Hebron Grille

Reviewed By maryknashley

We sampled a bit of everything! First, it's like walking into your own living room. The staff is friendly. It's family owned and they treat you like you are part of their family. The portions are HUGE. We had the gator bites (you have to try them!). I had their specialty salad with chicken and their signature white barbecue sauce was fabulous. You can buy a bottle (and I did!). My companions had the meatloaf. Both of them are finicky but they loved it. They ended their meal with the pretzel bites. All of the food was top-notch. The price was very reasonable. If you're in the area, you have to try this restaurant.

Reviewed By MTA-747-757-767

This place is next to the hotel where we were staying. Bored with hotel breakfasts, we walked over to Cracker Barrel. Cordial hostess seated us. Our waitress was also a very pleasant gal with excellent customer service skills.I had a typical breakfast, two eggs over medium, three strips of bacon and their loaded hashbrowns. (I passed on ordering the grits,) The eggs and were fairly standard. The bacon thick and cooked perfectly. The hashbrowns were an abundance of flavor. I mean really, how can you go wrong with hashbrowns with cheese? Very tasty side dish.Overall, very good food, great service, all at a reasonable price. What more could you ask for? Well done!

Skyline has the best Cincinnati Chili. Soft warm buns used for the coneys.I grew up in Northern Kentucky and have to have Skyline when I come home. I always order a small size (same as the kids size) and a cheese coney and it is plenty of food. I am sure the other items on the menu are great, but I cannot say. If this is your first visit, order the 3, 4 or 5 way, and a coney.

This place has tasty burgers and fun trivia. However we were a little surprised when we got the bill. I was charged for the fries that came with my burger. When our waitress took my order she asked me if fries were ok, which to me sounded like they were included. Then to my surprise they were $1.50 on top of my $9 cheeseburger. If I would've known that, I would've skipped the fries as I'm not that fond of fries in the first place. My wife got the wings and most places give you at least one cup of bleu cheese or ranch as well as celery at no extra charge. When we got our bill we also discovered that every cup of dressing and the celery sticks were an additional charge on top of $11.75 for about 8 boneless wings. We also had to bag for refills of our tea all night.

Washington Square Cafe

Reviewed By Keith P

Me and my friends go out once a month on what we call “burger night”. We order only burgers and beer mostly. We went out in the limb to check this place out for its burgers. I have been there a couple times before but for something different. Fish sandwich during lent. I found that sandwich very good. But I tell you their burgers are excellent. Good sides as well. Not huge selection of beer but certainly sufficient. This rates up there with only a couple of 5 star burger places we have been to. Check out this place fire burgers u won’t be disappointed.

We wanted to enjoy some local Kentucky cuisine on our vacation so we chose the Tousey House. The restaurant is in an old house which is in great condition. Parking is limited but there is a free lot across the street. The interior is nice. You can tell that the building is old, but it is kept up nicely. The tables have linen table cloths. The staff was welcoming and friendly.The food was good. The complimentary bread was delicious. For appetizers we ordered the beer cheese and the Goetta egg rolls. Both were tasty. For our entrees we ordered the fried chicken and the Hot Brown sandwich. The chicken was amazing. Genuine authentic southern, dare I say Kentucky fried chicken. It was so juicy and delicious. The Hot Brown must be a local thing because it didn't do it for us. The meat was tasty, but the combination with the cheese, sauce and meat just wasn't to our liking. The food is pricey. This was a pretty expensive meal. Overall it was a good experience for local cuisine.
