BellvilleSteak & Ribs


KC's Steak & Ribs

I made my reservation for a room near the Mid-Ohio race course the day before my trip and got the last room in town was at the Day's Inn.  I expected to be disappointed in the room and I was. 

I also expected to find another highway exit full of disappointing chain restaurants. I was pleasantly surprised to find KC's.  It caught my eye (I do have a trained eye for a good place) and I found refuge from my dark, dank motel room in the KC's lounge. 

The first night I had the ribs (excellent), a Greek salad for lunch the next day (excellent) and liver & onions the next night for dinner (excellent).  Nice bar too.

Just off I-71.

Steak & Ribs

If your hotel is on Taylor Road, you'd go here because it is the only place around.

The good news?  It was pretty good.  I wasn't very hungry but had the ribs appetizer and I could tell they do a nice job (moist, chewy, crusty, tender, the sauce was a little too sweet for my taste.)

A nice bar and I had a delightful bartender (Sally?).

Someone e-mail me one?


Gatsby's Pizza

This place caught my eye.  It looked like a friendly neighborhood joint and it was. 

Better than decent food and a friendly bar.

West Jefferson: Home Cooking

Henry's Restaurant

Here is a place I'd not have ventured into if I hadn't heard about it.  I'm guessing it used to be the restaurant that adjoined a gas station.  The gas station has long been closed and nobody did much of anything to gussy up the place since.

Very good home cooking.  Very good desserts.  Worth a diversion from the highway.  (it's about 20 miles west of Columbus.)
