Dellroy Drive-In in Dellroy, Ohio

I am in the process of trying to plan an often semi-annual trip to visit family scattered across part of the Eastern United States. As I was thinking about past trips and places we stopped, I realized there were some places that I had planned to share, but had failed to do in the midst […]

Taggarts Ice Cream Parlor

I am not sure when we first discovered Taggerts. I do know that it was many years ago and it was not there original location, but at a store in North Canton that no longer exists. I also know that my dad loved their ice cream and I loved their lemon Pepsi…maybe it was Coke […]

Miller’s Bakery near Charm, Ohio

As we pulled into the parking lot, I could already smell the heavenly scent. I started to wonder how I had missed this place for all these years. Upon entering the store, I glanced at the cases filled with candies and baked goods. It was then that I started mentally kicking myself for not coming […]

Izzy’s in Cincinnati

A Ruben sandwich piled high with quality meat, melted cheese, and cabbage on tender rye bread…not what I expected to find in Cincinnati, Ohio. However, I found that great sandwich and more at the local chain Izzy’s. Started by Jewish immigrants in 1901, Izzy’s was “the kosher style delicatessen West of the Alleghenies,” according to […]

First Watch is First Choice for Breakfast

Okay, I am very partial to local, “mom-and-pop” owned restaurants. However, on rare occasion, a chain or franchised restaurant just gets it right. First Watch is one of those rare gems. Although franchised with more than 100 locations, First Watch does not seem to be a typical chain. First, they are only open for breakfast […]

Der Dutchman Restaurant in Holmes County, Ohio

The Amish Country in Ohio is a great area to get home-style comfort food that is consistently delicious. My two favorite place are actually owned by the same company that also has locations in Florida. Although they still own less than 10 restaurants, it is a much larger company than I ever expected to be […]

Everything is Delicious at Everything Bagels

There is a hidden treasure in Cincinnati.  It is a bagel shop, Everything Bagels. Hidden from view of, yet almost next to, State Route 32  in the Eastgate area is this wonderful local gem that serves fantastic bagels and sandwiches. From the first time I ate there, it became one of my favorites and “must go-to” […]

Tom’s Ice Cream Bowl

Just off of I-70 in Zanesville, Ohio there is a place where you can be transported  back to another time, perhaps your childhood.  Tom’s Ice Cream Bowl is not a “retro” shop, it is the real thing.  Its decor from the tables to the soda fountain bar to the floor are the same as they […]

New Orleans To Go: To Cincinnati?

How does someone who does not live in Cincinnati end up recommending the Po’ Boys from a food truck in the Ohio city’s downtown? The simple answer is because of my brother-in-law. He has raved about the terrific food served by the New Orleans To Go since he first ate it. He has even managed […]

Rockin’ Robin’s Soda Shoppe & Catering

I am lucky enough (or maybe just old) to remember eating at soda fountains when I was younger. Between the soda fountain in a local drug store and the lunch counter/fountain in a discount store where my grandmother had worked, I have wonderful memories of sitting on a stool eating ice cream or drinking a […]
