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.

The Greyhound Tavern

Reviewed By Tim D - Florence, Kentucky, United States

There are still restaurants that combine near perfect home style cooking with impeccable southern charm right here in northern Kentucky, (Thanks Carla for the superb service). From the fantastic (already raves about by others) fried chicken to the onion ring appetizer, to the soft fire in the fireplace, this was a perfect after Christmas afternoon.

Colonial Cottage

Reviewed By JetlaggedTourist

I visited here twice in February. The first time I ordered the Popeye spinach wrap. The sandwich was good, but there were two hairs and lint on my plate. I thought I would overlook that and visit again. This time I ordered the Kentucky Hot Brown and mashed potatoes. The hot brown was alright, but the potatoes were not only instant, they were cold. Sent them back. Sad to say I will not visit again.

Crewitts Creek Kitchen & Bar

Reviewed By saalfeldk68 - Independence, KY

I think the food is average. A lot of it is greasy including the deep fried tater toys. What happened to eating healthy? Also pricy since sandwiches are $12.

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!

The service was great and the food was amazing. The menu has something for everyone, not just pizza. They are great with the kids too. It's not someone place to worry about taking the kids. Crayons, goldfish and they always talk to the kids. Very Accomodating.

City Barbeque

The idea for City Barbeque was born as an invitation to all the people in the city to enjoy great barbeque- America's food. Our award-winning barbeque is made with only the highest quality meats and served with our signature sauces on the side. Huge smokers are loaded daily to guarantee the very best hickory smoked, juicy, tender meat anywhere. So if an authentic barbeque experience is what you're after, look no further. Small groups of folks like us still believe in honoring quality, generations of tradition and true service. Whether you call it barbecue, Bar-B-Que, BBQ, or barbeque - we've got what you are looking for!

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.

Wok & Roll Chinese

Reviewed By NKyAdventurer - Cincinnati Ohio

This Chinese, mostly take-away and delivery restaurant has been here for many years. It serves the usual American Chinese fare but it's always tasty, fresh, and quick. It's become one of my favorite "go to" restaurants on many occasions. I particularly enjoy their economical lunch specials which provides enough food for lunch for 2 days. I also think they've got some of the best garlic chicken and hot-n-sour soup in the Northern Kentucky area.
