What is the best place for BBQ in Cincinnati?
I was in Cincinnati over the weekend visiting family. I'm partial to Walts , but haven't tried many of the "newer" places.
We went to Jimmy's for dinner one night. I understand this place is fairly new. The various meats were well smoked and very tasty. The sauce was pretty good too. The sides were fine but nothing exceptional.
As mentioned in the other post, there's BBQ Revue, but I was disappointed in my last trip there. Pit-to-Plate in Mount Healthy is pretty good. There's also Walt's Hitching Post across the river in Fort Mitchell, Ky. Goodie's in College Hill is also well thought-of (not open on Sunday).
If an out-of-towner is asking about ribs in Cincinnati, they've likely heard of Montgomery Inn, which isn't true BBQ, but it's good eatin'. Their Boathouse restaurant has a great view of the river. I've taken many out-of-towners there, and few have left disappointed. Wait times can be long, so call ahead. Plus, they catered my daughter's wedding, and everybody loved it.
The local paper recently reviewed three new BBQ joints in town; link is below. Haven't tried any, but plan to.
