Convenient to our hotel, gave it a try. Server at counter moved in slo-mo, "hey we'd like to have our food while its hot". Pulled pork average, beef brisket not too tender, plenty of fat. Normal sides expected at BBQ, best was the bread pudding....More

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 morning drive by smelled the smoke decided to try it during visit. Got the plater with home made kilbasa and pulled pork with two st. Luise ribs. Nice BBq feel a bit less than clean and staff a bit like Macdonalds cashiers.

Whenever I go to Cincinnati I always go here for barbeque. It is the real deal. I always get the St. Louis style ribs. The baby back ribs are good also but I prefer the St. Louis style because I think it has more flavor...More

I got takeout from Jim Dandy's as we stopped for the night on the way back from Indiana. Boy was it great! We're from North Carolina and we know NC BBQ is great, so we always like to try other styles. We were NOT disappointed...More

Stopped there on our way back from TN and were blown away by the flavor and tenderness of the meat. It was truly the best bbq meat I've ever had. I had the half rack of baby back ribs, pulled pork, and pulled chicken. Everything...More

It's okay, NOTHING special, NOTHING to cross the street for. But, the Ice tea was good and fresh. SO, that's something...

Food delish, restaurant comfy, prices reasonable, service fast and friendly. What else could you want in a dining experience? How about their bread pudding? It's the perfect dessert!

We stopped here before going to the Trans Siberian Orchestra show. Food was incredible, I had the ribs and my wife had the chicken. Some of the best BBQ we have had. If you are in the area this is a must place to eat

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.
