In general, it’s our policy to not review big national chains.
After all with most chains, maybe excluding service, what you get in one should be nearly identical to what you get at another. Not much point in reviewing that. On top of that – we love Cincinnati (and surrounding areas) so we want to highlight all the things that make this place special, not the things you can get anywhere.
It’s for that reason that we really, really appreciate when a big chain gets serious about localizing their offerings to make them unique and special to the area. That’s where Smashburger and Christian Moerlein come in.
