Loved the BBQ with the wood smoke flavor and a great selection of sides to go with it. Atmosphere was great and the staff very friendly and helpful. Value for what you get is very good...what more could you ask!

In true Cincinnati fashion, at Jim Dandy's Family BBQ we make a BBQ that's all our own: fresh meat, never frozen, cooked low and slow over a wood fire. From our roadside roots to our warm, welcoming atmosphere, Jim Dandy's Cincinnati Slow-Fired BBQ is authentic, traditional, one-of-a-kind good. You're gonna love it like a local.
