Mingles Sports Bar and Grill

Review #6 @ Stop #7
Mingles Sports Bar and Grill
1296 Highway 28 (Mt. Repose)
513.722.1700

Note: Since posting this review, Mingles has been sold twice and has changed it's name to the Miami Township Tavern and then George's Bar and Grill. This review is not meant to endorse or criticize current ownership, but to only inform readers of the situation. As of late December 2006, another name change: now Bad Habitz.

A Clermont County informant praised this place so the Cincinnati Burger Guys hit the road. Mingles Sports Bar and Grill is a modern bar – a wide-open room with a long bar down the center, pool tables and video games on one side – tables and space for a band on the other. The CBG team went during lunch. Without the presence of the mechanical bull, the monitors showing ESPN served as entertainment.

The $4.95 burger was large, served on a slightly squished, toasted Kaiser bun with lettuce, tomato, and onion, plus accompanied by Saratoga chips and a pickle spear. Slightly squished, lightly seasoned, toasted bun scores points with Bucky! The meat was moist and noticeably seasoned which impresses Freddie! This was such an outstanding find Freddie did a return solo visit to double check his senses.

Mingles serves a burger that burger lovers truly desire. This is a prime example of how adding a few small details improve the product. A friend of Freddie’s once said, “It doesn’t take that much more to be first class.” Freddie discovered the spice mixture added to the Mingles burger, but telling everyone would spoil the secret on Route 28.

Bucky and Freddie proudly give Mingles their highest honor. Congratulations on receiving the first Exceptional Burger Award from the Cincinnati Burger Guys! So when you go to Mingle’s, mention the Cincinnati Burger Guys.

Points: 9.5
CBG Rating: Exceptional

Went to Mingles today, and tried their burger, that was the worst burger I have ever eaten! There was no taste to the burger, the bun was hard. I was not impressed.
