When you arrive a Terry's, get ready to stand outside and enjoy some drinks and complementary peanuts for a while... When you get a table (a hour and a half later), you'll notice the interesting decor. There is no lighting, the dining area is lit entirely by various beer signs and such:
The menu is pretty simple. But my experience indicates that a simple menu means the restaurant only makes a few things but does them well. That's definitely true here. The burgers are large and delicious. And. they actually do have a good variety of topping options (like goat cheese and banana peppers).Ah, the Life of Kings...
I'm not sure I've had all the great burgers of Cincinnati, and so am not necessarily qualified to judge. However, I would say this is the best burger I have had in Cincinnati (I think Zip's is is a little bland).
Terry's is a must try for Cincinnatians. I would go as soon a possible, before it's Food Network exposure drives the wait up to four hours.
