City View is a hole in the wall bar and grill on Oregon St, a little bit away from the Mt. Adams bar district. The menu is fairly simple. They've got some basic bar food that they do quite well. And, as the name indicates, the bar has an excellent view of downtown Cincinnati.
I ordered their specialty - a burger, here called the "Big Ted":
The burger was juicy and very good. Also, it came with Grippos BBQ chips, which are for my money the best potato chips in the world.
Also, here is a "Myrt's Wurst", a "Smoked, hot, quarter-pound mett on dark rye, with horseradish, brown mustard, onion, catsup, and American cheese":
Maybe my favorite part of City View is that the walls are covered with Cincinnati history. It's like an archive of sports and politics from the town I grew up in. For example, here's where the Red's ballpark should have been built:
And of course, a nice view of the city from the bar:
And the view from the deck:
