When I lived there, Ollie's Trolley was next to Red Foxx Grill across from P&G. I used to go there all the time. I loved it!

That Trolley is long gone and much missed. Rumor has it one still exists somewhere in Covington. The Ollie's in Lexington that I haunted while taking summer courses at UK is also only a memory. In Louisville, one survives and thrives along South 3rd St on the fringe of downtown. What a rush to chow down on one of those yummy burgers and gobble some of their never-duplicated spicy fries once more, when I was in Loovull last April.

People talk about, and media make much of, an "alleged" Ollie's Trolley in the West End that's either on Linn St or Liberty or perhaps where they intersect. From what I can discern, only the name's the same. The "real" Ollie's Trolleys don't do greens or deep-fried turkey or any other soul food. (Deep-fried turkey, huh? Gotta be an acquired taste.) It may be good eatin' and probably is, but the burgers and spicy fries that folks pine for apparently aren't on the menu.

We found a great Greek restaurant..Not quite in Cincy, it's in Liberty Township

Greek Isles or here (http://www.journal-news.com/n/content/oh/story/news/business/2007/07/11/pjw071207greekisles.html - broken link) or here

We've eaten there 4-5 times. (In fact, last night) Everything is very good, from full meals and platters to sandwiches.

We love it. It's worth the drive.

When I was back in da Nati for the holidays, I noticed a proliferation of places called "Mythos" downtown. Gotta be Greek - but how's the food?

In ann arbor - the place was Blimpys (awesome greasy thin little burgers). In chicago its the Billy Goat Grill/Tavern (place "Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger" SNL skit was based on)

Where is the place here?


Thanks!
There are some good burger joints in the area, but I don't know of anyplace that makes a "smashburger".

Christy {daughter of the owners of Lenhardt's} has taken over the entire business. The menu in the restaurant has changed to bar food, sandwiches and a few lone German/Hungarian dinners. The first weekend of every month, Christy's parents come back in & cook for what is called "Schnitzel Weekend". If you are going, I recommend trying to go the first weekend!

Here is a link to the menu Christy's and Lenhardts

As for Mecklenburg's, I think they are good, albeit overpriced.

FYI~
Kona Bistro closed on Dec. 31, 2008, citing the economic downturn.

They have another location in Oxford, OH, that remains open.
