Re: “Finger Lickin' Good: A Quest for the Best Fried Chicken in Cleveland

A piece of advice to anyone on a chicken quest: do your research before you make that long haul down to Barberton for the famous Barberton chicken.
It's different than the fried chicken most people are accustomed to, as it has very few spices - only salt and pepper - in the breading, making it kind of bland by comparison. It is very tender and juicy.
The famous hot sauce is also unusual - it's a small bowl of stewed tomatoes and rice with a very small and subtle bit of "heat."

Buns, agreed, are too big. Pricey grub (truly no big deal), but tasty. Decent HH. Punks wanna kvetch about $ but happily spend like crazy on booze and cigs. Take your ass to McDonald's then. Oh, and yeah, list an address when you review a restaurant. JeZus!

I absolutely love Prosperity Club's fried chicken dinner. Comes with their delicious mac & cheese and greens. Amazing! I think it's only $10 on Sundays.

Re: “What Could Have Been: Joey's Bistro in Cleveland Heights Rests on Reputation

It's a good thing they have a big (corrupt and dirty) family. Otherwise there'd be no positive reviews. This place is gross.

Re: “Bricco delivers solid food and sloppy service on Playhouse Square

Would be good to just delete this since that restaurant is closed in Cleveland. Since you ignore every other location that has great food and excellent service, this does not apply to them at all.

This place and management is a joke. Burgers are ok if you want to wait an hour for it. Super salty patty huge bun and skimpy on burger toppings. Over priced. Vanilla milkshake $7 and a choc milkshake with crap in it for $6? Owners are very stuck up. Lady with long blonde hair running expo never puts it back. You might find a suprise on your burger plate. Servers seem like its everybodies first day on the job.

We were there with another couple a few weeks ago and I thought the atmosphere was horrible. A big, boxy, noisy room, not very comfortable seating, industrial, boring decoration and the large unused seating area in front. I will say that the onion rings were good but for $6.00 I would expect them to be good. Too many other good burger joints to go to but I guess it depends on what you want out of a restaurant.

Who the fuck can afford to go to this place more than one or twice a year? What goddamn target market do these amateurs think they're exploiting with these bullshit buns and overpriced fries and absurd service deficiencies? Franchising will never ever happen. I wouldn't invest to wooden nickels into this impending Zeppelin-style business fail.

Went there this past weekend, atmosphere was great, beer was great, sat at the bar and someone named Caroline waited on us, who was wonderful. I agree with others that the bun was way too big... would be great if there were other options for buns, i.e. pretzel bun, whole grain, asiago bun...maybe lettuce bun. It will be fabulous in the summer when they can open up the garage door to the outside bar.

You don't know what a good burger is if you think Grindburger has it! My friend and I ordered 2 different burgers cooked medium (warm pink center) and received charred on the outside, well done in the middle meatballs on an over sized bun. The burger had not been pressed so there was about 1" of bun all the way around with no meat on it. As for the fries ($6.00) they were limp and very well passed the golden stage. I will never return...worse burger ever!

I recently ate at Grind and while the burger was tasty, the bun is way too big. Makes the actual patty look tiny. And the pricing makes no sense. Besides being expensive, you can build your own burger for less than the pre-made creations. Why?

I agree with the author's experience. The burgers were good, but the service was extremely slow....people were sat and waited 10 minutes for water. Other tables sat for at least 30 minutes with dirty dishes at their table. Additionally, if you go it alone you can't order a half basket of fries. It's good, but not that good for the money especially with the service offered.

Vegan is not my preference, but others like me need to pay them a visit. Cleveland Vegan has offered lunch at my workplace for better than a year now..... THEY ARE AWESOME!
