Krueger’s Tavern – Burger Club 1

by Bryan on August 3, 2015

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.

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 Business District and nearby. But frankly, that leaves a LOT of choices.

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 […]

I have been on a burger discovery lately, and eaten at a lot of burger joints… all for you (yeah, my wife isn’t buying that either). Cafe de Wheels is one of the new food trucks in Cincinnati. They are also the first that is a fully equipped kitchen on wheels.

Vincenzo’s Ristorante Italiano

March 26, 2010

One of our favorite Italian restaurants, if not the favorite, is Vincenzo’s on Chester Road. If it wasn’t for the fact that it was way out in Springdale, we would go a lot more often. It is on our list of special event restaurants, and for my wife’s birthday we made a visit.

The Red Fox Grill has been around for a long time. It is located in an unassuming building catty corner to P&G’s Central Building. I have heard it called P&G Cafeteria North. It is a classic grill that serves sandwiches, soups and burgers. I have been going here long enough to remember the Dry Cleaner […]

Ruthai’s Thai Kitchen

Ruthai’s Thai Kitchen is a little mom & pop Thai place in Mt. Lookout square. We have been going to this restaurant since it opened. Initially we went because it was closer than Teak, and we could walk to it. But it did not take long to get hooked on the spring rolls, tasty entrees, […]
