I decide on a rather epic ham and Swiss sandwich:
Even though it was just ham and Swiss, this really was a great sandwich. There's a few places on the West-side of Cincinnati that have big sandwiches, but the meat can be dry and not that good (like the Red Squirrel). J&J's has a bigger and better tasting double-decker. Throw in the fact that it comes with Grippos... And well, you've got a meal I like very much.
No-nonsense great food, and at a good price. The 92% it currently gets on Urbanspoon is too low. Highly Recommended ...After leaving, we drove back down Queen City towards downtown - through South Fairmont, past what used to be the remnants of Cincinnati's Little Italy, and past a group of kids playing corn-hole on the sidewalk. As luck would have it, I was listening to the National, since I've been on a bit of a kick lately. After a great meal at a restaurant from my childhood, I thought at the time - This is a great very-Cincinnati moment to go out on.
Perhaps I've come to the end of me
Astute readers of this blog may have noticed I have mentioned graduate school a couple times. As of last week, I started a graduate degree and will be spending a great deal of time outside of Cincinnati. With this cramp on my free time, I doubt will have the time to keep up the reviews and occasional rants at this blog. It's possible I will find time to post again at some point (it was after all almost a year between my 1st and 2nd posts). However, this may very well be my last post.
Thanks for reading.
