WE sat in the bar area on this trip, and I tried the
FRIED CHEESE” & BACON BURGER* it was around $10 or so.
Here is their advertisement for this Burger, The best bacon cheeseburger in town! Fried cheese, thick-cut hardwood smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, pickles, red onion & Amazin’ Sauce.
The Waitress was very good and asked how I wanted my Burger Cooked, as always I ordered it Medium-Well done, on this trip, my Wife ordered the Steak, and she was just going to taste my Burger for the review.
It looked great when it arrived, very big burger, the lettuce, tomato and onion and pickles all looked very good and fresh, it took a big bite to get into this burger, it was very good, the Bacon was excellent, the Beef was pretty good, the Fried Cheese, well it was pretty bad, I would never order it with the Fried Cheese again and would not recommend it, if you want Fried cheese, order that alone, and get a Plain Burger, the Fried Cheese ruined this one, when you bite into the burger, this big piece of Fried cheese busts open and hot cheese pours out everywhere, not a good mix on this burger.
The Fries were good, bun was ok.
Underneath that Fried Cheese was a pretty good tasting Burger overall, the Fried Cheese was good when I removed some from the Burger and ate it alone, but mixed with the Burger, the Flavors just did not sit well with either of us, we both agreed a good burger, good fried cheese, but only when they are eaten Separately.
Definitely it had some spices in it, for a change, which helped the flavor a lot.
Her Steak was Fair, and a bit overpriced.
Final Thoughts: Pretty good Burger, Good Fried cheese, excellent Bacon, but don't get the Fried Cheese on the Burger, they do not work or taste well together.

I have always loved Izz'y Sandwiches, their Reubens and Corned Beef & Salami, with Pickles and excellent Fried Potato Pancakes, I'm not sure when they started adding Burgers, but just recently I started seeing them pop up in best burger discussions for the area, so we decided to try them out.
We ordered a Double ZZ Burger with Corned Beef, $8,99 a 100% Angus beef on rye, you can get it with Corned Beef, or Pastrami.
Also an Izzy Burger $8.29 With lettuce, tomato and red onion on a toasted kaiser bun. They both come with about 4 of their excellent Pickles, a big Potato Pancake, and a pack of Mustard, I normal don't use Mustard on my Burgers, but it's good on these and their regular Sandwiches. They don't ask you here how you want them cooked, ours came well-done, next time if I come here again, I will ask if they can cook it Medium-Well and see if they will do that or if Well-Done is their Standard way to cook them. They were fairly good-sized thick patties, definitely no hint of spices, no salt, pepper or anything, we had to add our own, it was a good tasting piece of Beef, reminded me of Zip's Cafe Burgers, a good tasting burger, but something I could cook on my own grill at home with good beef, nothing special, just plain good. The Rye that mine came on was really good, I actually preferred it over the Kaiser Bun of their Plain burger, also the Corned Beef was excellent and added to the taste of the Burger, made it much better, gave it a better Flavor. I think if they would add some spices when cooking it, and if they would ask how you wanted them cooked, would definitely improve the Flavor of these good burgers. We both agreed this was a pretty good Burger and would definitely prefer the one with the Corned Beef on any future trips. The Whole Meal definitely filled us up. Final Thoughts: We can definitely recommend these Burgers, give the Double ZZ a try with Corned Beef or Pastrami, otherwise, you will get just a plain ole good burger, the Corned Beef or Pastrami really makes it different and special. Final Rating: 7.0* - 6.0* without the Corned Beef or Pastrami, 7.0* with it.
We stopped in here on a late Monday Night so we could get a meal and watch Monday night Football, I had remembered getting Wings here more than 20 years ago and could not believe it was still here, I don't think it had the same name, but served Wings and the same type of food.
the inside looks great, it's split into 2 parts, the left side is the Bar with a wall separating the Dining area, which is has an old time look to it.
The Waitress was awesome that night, we ordered 20 Garlic Wings and a couple of deluxe Burgers.
The Wings were excellent, they won the N. Kentucky award for Best Wings in the area and it's well deserved, the Burger is another thing, I won't go into too much on it, except that, I won't go here again for Burgers, they are known for their Wings, so that's what you should order, the Fries were also good.
The Bun fell apart, again, I absolutely hate when I 1st pick up a burger and the bun starts falling apart, the Burger itself, just was not very good, it was pretty plain, it was a big burger, but the bun was not good and the meat could have been much better, I would never order it again, simply put, there are so many better Burgers around, go elsewhere for them, but go here for the Great Wings.
No more needed here, it just was not good!
Final Thoughts: Great Wings, I love the Garlic Wings & Fries with Celery & Blue Cheese!
If this were a Blog for Best Wings, this one would be in the top 5 and Challenge for the top spot, as good as any Wings around.
My Wife & I had a groupon Coupon and stopped in, it's in a nice little area of Covington, and the place itself, looked clean and updated, it was around Lunch time, I got the Main Strasse Monster $10.99 it was huge, no way to get this thing in your mouth, you have to cut it and eat it in pieces, Double Chuck, Double Cheese, Double Fried Egg, 4 strips of bacon. is worth it with Fries, which were good. With the Groupon coupon, it was nearly half of a $20 order, The Burger was very good, although I don't prefer Chuck, it was still very good, 2 fried eggs were too much, I can eat a lot, but this Monster is way too big and way too much burger, it would be much better at half the size for me, and still that would be a big burger, I would come here to eat a Normal Regular Burger anytime,now when I say this Burger was huge, it's no exaggeration, it's the absolute biggest burger I've ever had, it was pretty good, but 2 eggs just took away too much from the taste of the meat, so I started removing some of the extra items on this thing to get a better taste of the burger, it definitely had lots of seasonings in it and was a bit overcoocked, but still good, I ordered it Medium-well but don't believe it made it that way, as it tasted Well Done
I've heard they have excellent Pizza and I saw several people picking up boxes of Pizza to go, so I want to try it next time, but the reviews say Pizza is good, Burgers are VEry Good and big, so are the fries, service was ok, Bar Tender was waitress at Lunch Time, not too busy or too many people, but when we gave her the Groupon coupon to start out, she seemed to get an attitude about it, I hate it when places offer coupons, then their employees give you an attitude for using them, service from her was slow, I still gave a good Tip, even though her service sucked, because I don't want them to think coupon people are cheap, but businesses, you need to get on your people about this coupon attitude, next time if service is poor, I will ask for the manager and tell them just because we have a coupon, does not mean we won't leave a good tip for good service and if service is bad, I will tell the Manager that's why no or very little tip, and that even with a Coupon I won't return a 3rd time or more, no matter how good the food, and that I will pass that on to everyone I know, if it happens again at any location I use a coupon at.
Final Thoughts: Very Good Burger, but order a regular burger, the Monster is too much and also you just can't quite get a taste of the burger due to all the extra stuff on this one., fries were good, service sucked.
This one will go under our out of town list, as their are none in Ohio or Kentucky.
They use to be around the area, but are closed and I don't know why as they were an excellent Burger, their ad claims as it says, The World's Best Burger, well not quite, not even best in the area when it was around, but definitely a very good one.
We stopped here on a trip to S.C. near the Smokey Mountains.
I ordered, The Frick Burger during Lunch, I got the 1/3lb. burger meal it was a Lunch Special, this is the smallest burger they have, but make no mistake, this is not a small burger, if you go larger, be prepared to be able to eat a huge burger, it came with a drink & fries for around $10 not a bad deal.
it was Hearty third pound burger with Cheese.
The meat tasted like it had a few seasonings, salt & pepper for sure, and it was pretty good, one of the better burgers I've had in awhile and it's been years since I've had a Fudruckers burger since they left Ohio and Ky.
It was a large Medium-Well piece of beef, tasted fresh, but the best part apart this burger and this place is, the Fixins Bar, it's like a Salad Bar for just the Burger, they have absolutely every single Topping you would ever want or think of to go on a Burger.
They have ever sauce and extra seasonings to go on it, after fixing mine up with the works, it really improved it, and made it, one of the best Burgers we've ever had, definitely top 10, maybe top 5, there were 2 of us on this trip and we both agreed on this, we both ordered the same burger, and both tasted good.
You can't go wrong coming here, nothing beats the Fixins bar with a fresh cooked piece of beef.
The fries were also good, and they have cookies which were good.
Final Thoughts: I can definitely recommend this one and will eat here again, next time we head south for a trip.
