Krueger’s Tavern – Burger Club 1

Post image for 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.

Joe’s Diner on Sycamore Soft Opening

July 23, 2010

The old Diner on Sycamore returned to life today as Joe’s Diner on Sycamore began their “soft open”. The grand opening is currently set for August 10th, but they are going to basically run pre-season for the next few weeks to work out the kinks. The menu is still pretty extensive for a “limited menu”. The waiter […]

I am easing into Bacon Week here on pFoody with an overdue review of Mayberry. Mayberry bills itself as A Grassroots American Eatery and is located downtown between Scotties and Hamburger Mary’s. The lunch menu can be described as comfort food with a twist. They do not have a web site for Mayberry (at least that I […]

Five Guys just opened up on Calhoun in Clifton Heights. Not sure if today was the first day, but it is still listed as “Coming Soon” on their web site. In case you miussed it from the name, this place specializes in burgers and fries. The restaurant is riddled with rave reviews, and lists of […]
