Krueger’s Tavern – Burger Club 1

Our first stop on the pFoody Burger Club expedition was Krueger’s Tavern in OTR. This restaurant is the latest in the group that includes Bakersfield and The Eagle. They are located in the old Lavomatic space, and it has been interesting to see how they have evolved.

The name of the place is an homage to Krueger’s Brewing in New Jersey that in 1935 became the first to sell beer in cans. They have quite the selection of canned beers, but offer only 2 on tap. Coors and a rotating selection. When they opened, they had only one burger, The Krueger, and imported beef from Pat LaFrieda’s in New Jersey.

Since opening, they expanded their line of burgers to 5 (6 if you count the Veggie… I don’t). The burger is now ground in-house. They realized they already had the meat grinding gear for their sausages, so they decided to start grinding their own. I’ve had both, and don’t see a big difference. Ground in-house makes a big difference. So what was the Club’s impressions of the place? Read on to find out.

pFoody Burger Club

by Bryan on July 29, 2015

Today I am launching a project that really has no end in sight. It is the pFoody Burger Club. The goal is to check out as many of the burgers that Cincinnati has to offer that we can. Over the last few years I have tried to check out as many spots as possible, but it was without planning. The picture for this article is of the late great “The Burger” from Mayberry. In the pFoody Burger Club we are going to target hitting a new place every two weeks.

I have quite a few places in mind, but hope the other members will contribute their own ideas, and the readers will chime in as well.

Last post I tried to focus on long-time Cincinnati Classics. This post I want to cover the newer places. The problem with this post is there are a LOT of newer places. Since this is ASG inspired, I am going to limit myself to three areas; OTR (just north of downtown, north of Central), the Central […]

The Non-Definitive Guide to Cincinnati Classics

July 10, 2015

With the upcoming All-Star game, I have begun thinking about one of the original reasons that I wanted to start a site like pFoody. When I was doing more travel, I always wanted to know what places locals recommended. A web site seems to be a pretty effective place to share information like that. So I […]

Eggs-Zavier Week: Back to Comfort

February 18, 2015

It’s that time of the year again, the time when the University of Cincinnati Bearcats battle “crosstown” rival Xavier in the Crosstown Shootout. Four years ago I started what was going to be an annual tradition of highlighting egg dishes in “honor” of rival Eggs-Zavier (I am a Cincinnati grad myself).  By the next year, […]

Kitchen Kinives

April 11, 2012

When I was finishing up College, I worked at Cutlery World. It was a fun gig, and I learned a lot about knives. I also became enamored with Henckels knives. At the time, the three big lines were Chicago Cutlery, Trident, and Henckels. Chicago Cutlery had wood handles, and stamped blades. I did not care […]

Jamie Oliver’s 20 Minute Meals for Android for Free

July 28, 2011

The Amazon Appstore for Android has a daily free application. Today it is Jamie’s 20 Minute Meals, usually priced at $7.99, available for free today. I’ll definitely do a more thorough review later, but wanted to let you know about it now, since it won’t be free then. Looks like there is 80 MB of additional data (pics, video) […]

Quick Look: SmoQ and the Lunch Deal

February 23, 2011

I have been hearing a lot about the new barbecue restaurant SmoQ (warning, they have a VERY annoying website, turn down the volume before clicking). First I read a glowing review from notoriously picky (meant as a compliment) WineMeDineMe, and then just recently Cincinnati Nomerati added her praise. So when I found myself up that […]

A Day as a Schlep at Virgil’s Cafe

February 11, 2011

I have won a fair number of nice things on Twitter. Tickets to one of the Cirque shows in town, a UC basketball game, and Skyline Crosstown Shootout paraphernalia. And of course I am always hoping to win one of Scott Bourne’s killer camera give-a-ways (even it it is never Sony Gear). However, the best […]

Queso Producto con Tomate y Chiles Verdes

February 6, 2011

It’s Super Bowl Sunday, and that means snacks and dips. I already shared a simple Hummus recipe, today I share an even simpler dip. I used to just call it Rotel, because it was Rotel and Velveeta. I loved the combination, and first encountered it over 25 years ago (ouch… I am old). It was a stand by. […]
