We talked about this a couple of pages ago.

 
So we did. We went to the Winton Road location yesterday, and I agree with your initial assessment...good dog and fries, middling burger (comparable to Steak & Shake, except on a better and buttered bun). We also got one of the Nutter Butter frozen custard sandwich cookies, which was good on the outside and flavorless on the inside. They gave us an obscene amount of fries, so much so that I could have just split my $8 burger and dog combo meal with my 5-year-old instead of getting him his own dog combo. Their "fry sauce" is decent, but not as good as Cane's (which I never seem to tire of). All in all, I think we'll go back if we're in the area, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it.

Saw this on WCPO's website.  Has anyone tried Roll On In: Sushi Burritos in Lebanon yet?
 
https://www.facebook.com/rollonin/

To think that I saw it on Mulberry Street.

 
We tried Roll On In tonight before doing some shopping. It was a Sunday evening and about 70% of the tables were full and we had to park around the block. My wife had a teriyaki chicken roll and I had a tuna (fresh/raw but not spicy) roll. I ordered my roll with spinach, edamame, jalapeno, some asian slaw, and some crunchy onions, with sriracha and also teriyaki dressings. I opted for the one-protein (one  "meat serving") size, and we both got seaweed wraps.
 
What you receive for your $9 bucks or so is quite large, very tasty and filling, and very fresh. Neither of us could finish our entire rolls and I cherry picked the ingredients out from the rice with a fork toward the end.
 
The serving line is exactly like Chipotle, Blaze Pizza, Noodles and Co., or a dozen other places - you, the customer make a zillion choices on accoutrements. The more strange choices for sushi add-ons are guacamole and cream cheese (which my wife got.)
 
The decor is super-hipster spartan with stainless steel chairs. Serving is spartan - for eat-in you get your roll wrapped in paper, period.
 
I think the singular genius of this concept is getting the "labor per bite of finished product" down on sushi which lowers the cost. An entire meal of traditional sushi would probably be more like $20+ per person. Instead this place makes one huge roll the size of a Mexican burrito. I didn't see them make up the "bed" of seaweed wrapper and rice but I wasn't looking either - perhaps that's prep they do every day.

As long as we're in the neighborhood, any thoughts on Double D's BBQ?  Looks like they moved to Lebanon from Corwin sometime after my visit last year.



They actually have both locations now, neither of which we've tried yet. The Lebanon location is take-out only.

Enoteca Emilia and Son of a Preacher Man in O'Bryonville. Enoteca's Facebook page has more information. Judging by several comments, it appears to be an issue with the "evil" landlord.

We went to Enoteca for our anniversary a couple of years ago, and while everything was quite good, we didn't feel that we "had" to go back. Then again, we're the type to always try something new for a special occasion.

Three trips to Joella's and the consistency is amazing. I'm officially hooked, and since it's a bit of a hike from our house it's going to be tough to try Nashville Hot Chicken, which literally a tenth of a mile away.
 
Parm fries are addictive.

This may well be a stupid question, but - can you get normal fried chicken in these two places?
 
no heat whatsoever?
 
I ask as a man who has hard fought his way up to a current 3 on a 10 spice scale at Indian and Thai joints, but who still occasionally gets a 0

HEAR, HEAR!
 
Everyone's hung up on the latest BS hipster trend. What about core basics done well? I'm sick of pointless embellishment.
 
For me, "hot chicken" == deep fried in my own fryer at home, then eaten splashed with Tabasco or Frank's.

Yep, absolutely. My wife isn't a big fan of spicy and after trying both flavors toward the lower end is a huge fan of both.
 
I like the Ella's Fav, which is above medium, but does not require one to carry a fire extinguisher to use the bathroom the next day.
 
As I recall, I did send the link, which clearly details the heat levels, but here it is again ;) : https://www.joellashotchi...crescent-springs-menu/

Well, I hardly qualify as a hipster since I actually eat chicken, am married to someone of the opposite sex and actually have a job other than busing at a coffee shop part time. 
 
I clearly like this place, and have posted the link which clearly lists the spice levels, so maybe you should actually try it before dismissing my analysis.

I wasn't calling it hipster, mind you, just - well, I am a big wimp when it comes to spice heat
 
I didnt think to check the link, Bonk, sorry

I mean the restaurants, not the patrons. There's a lot of herd following in restaurant fashions.

OK, understood, but I like to think people are just wising up and are sick of paying for bad food when they eat out.

I don't how this place has become trendy for people who don't bathe and live in their parents' basements. It was mentioned here, and I've not seen it talked about anywhere else, so I fail to see how word has spread to the masses.

On my visits it certainly doesn't appear to be overrun by such people.

Admittedly that is an issue at some places but not here that I can see.

No worries. Yeah, the heat-free is very good. My wife prefers it.

I'm not a big fan of having my anus lit up either but the one I prefer has tons of flavor as well as a decent amount of heat.

Sarah Cole, the owner of Tickle Pickle in Northside was killed while crossing Hamilton Avenue late Thursday afternoon.

Such awful news. The FOX19 article mentions that she was bringing coffee back to her staff when she was struck (while not in the crosswalk). According to their Facebook page, the restaurant plans to reopen tomorrow. We have been several times, and have always enjoyed it.

In other news, Five Boroughs Pizzeria (formerly Noce's) in Cheviot suffered an electrical fire last week, which has shut down the restaurant for the time being. The Facebook page mentions that their insurance settlement isn't enough to replace all of the equipment necessary to get things back up and running, so they have set up a gofundme page (which has reached almost 20% of its goal) for anyone who wants to help.

The following article is interesting (to me at least) only in that one item noted is that the much-acclaimed OTR restaurant The Eagle is opening a second location in Anderson Township

Speaking of second locations, Taft's Ale House is opening another spot in Spring Grove Village (formerly Winton Place) near the corner of Mitchell and Spring Grove Avenues, just a few blocks from the I-75 exit (6). Unfortunately, unlike the original location, this one doesn't have a kitchen on site, but they are "still exploring options for how they might make food available to customers there."
