Smokin' This and That BBQ

It is our aim to provide you with the best portions of beef and pork with the best smoked flavor at affordable prices. We believe everyone should get to enjoy a slab of beef or pork, smoked to perfection. With our signature BBQ rub and BBQ sauce we cook mouthwatering meat that is fall-off-the-bone good! For tender, slow smoked barbecue, try Smokin' This and That BBQ. Our customers rave about our thick and juicy portions, and their best days are the days we fire up the smoker, too.

A true touch of the South. Started with samples that were outstanding and ended with way more than either of us could eat. I got the brisket parfait and my wife got the brisket sandwich. Sampled the wings and brisket taco. I would easily order of meal of either. This was delicious. Easily one of the tops that I have eaten anywhere in the country. We highly recommend this place for a casual but awesome meal.

Mai Thai Restaurant

Reviewed By Katherine1650 - Dry Ridge, Kentucky

I love the chicken pad thai here. It's so flavorful and has a great amount of chicken. I don't recall what my friends ordered, but I know they enjoyed their dinners as well. Appetizers are good and the service is friendly and prompt. I'll be going back very soon!

We picked up a party pack for 8-10 people and it fed our party of 9 easily. 2 meats (pulled pork and pulled chicken) and 2 sides (potato salad and corn pudding) made for a great new years eve dinner. Everyone enjoyed it. Also sent home buns and tons of sauce.

Cracker Barrel

Half Restaurant. Half Store. All Country

Reviewed By frompitpa - Pittsburgh, PA

Went for a late dinner. Cracker Barrel is good for relatively inexpensive comfort food and that's what my colleague and I were in the mood for. Service was good, food was OK. Don't expect to be wowed, but if you like southern-style comfort food, there's a reason this chain is so popular.

Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen

Reviewed By RandyHodge - VERONA

Wow this was our go to place to eat. After Darden buying them out you would only expect improvement, sadly mistaken. Went to eat Saturday 2/03 at 4:00 and the place was filthy, there was trash all over the floor, ketchup bottle and salt shaker had funk on them, bathrooms was nasty with paper towels all over the floor, not what you would expect from a Darden restaurant. At 4:00 they was not busy at all, went in and was set immediately, however we waited forever to get our food after ordering. Our party has ordered their fish several times in the past, but we found out that they serve Swai fish. If you don't know about Swai fish, please google them and read about them, no more fish at Cheddars. The only thing that kept them from getting the lowest rating is that their food was decient.

Rafferty's Restaurant

Reviewed By 007BigBlue - Denver, Colorado

I normally try to avoid the chain restaurant locations but this is a regionalized chain in the northern Kentucky area that we have never visited. We enjoyed the salmon with orange bourbon blaze and their homemade chicken salad. The inside was good with all the interior hardwoods and TVs but it might be time for a refresh as a lot of ware was showing. Anyway a good stop for a local chain.

Mad Mike's Burgers and Fries

Reviewed By ReadRibbet

We found Mad Mikes searching for a local restaurant near the Residence Inn we were staying at in Erlanger. Mikes had outside seating which made it doable since we were traveling with our small dog. The restaurant offers burger combinations, chicken sandwich combinations, hot dogs and sides and appetizers. These are thick freshly made burgers and the fries are skin on homemade fries. A large helping served two easily. Many local folks were there while we ordered and waited which also attests to the popularity of this regional chain. We had a $20 bill for two specialty burgers and large fries and a small tip. I look forward to another visit to Mad Mikes when we return to the area.

Chick-fil-A

Reviewed By Vetskidog - Murfreesboro, Tennessee

This restaurant closes at 10:00. I got there around 9:30 and people were trickling in behind me. I ordered my food and it took a while to get. Everyone who worked there was very friendly. As a matter of fact, as I took off I spilled my drink in the car and I turned around to tell them and they gave me a new one.

One negative is access. It isn't easily accessible. You have to go into the mall parking area to get there. No main road access.

Same quality food for Chik fil A.

Reviewed By 859michaell - Lexington, KY

Stopped by after work to hopefully have a nice, inexpensive dinner. I wasn’t disappointed. The burritos were very good and large portions. The salsa, (I was told prepared fresh daily), was excellent. The tortilla chips could have been better. All in all a good meal for less than $20. Convenient location near the interstate.
