Gano Tavern

Review #11 @ Stop 11
Gano Tavern
10024 Cincinnati-Dayton Rd (West Chester)

A friend recommended the Gano Tavern. Since Freddie has always been charmed by the exterior while driving by, he was especially anxious. On the other hand, Bucky (who used to live nearby) couldn’t recall the place. Go figure.

Internet research indicates the Gano Tavern has a long history. The property (just north of I-275) was a coach house on the main road connecting Cincinnati and Dayton. Unknown to our burger travelers at the time, it seems there’s an underground tunnel entering the tavern.

Make no mistake about it – the Gano Tavern is a bar taking care of its regular clientele. Located a short drive north of Crescentville Road, this long-standing location is a smoky, dark room with traditional bar food. For whatever reason, no brew for the burger crew on this day.

Served with potato chips, one of the first things Bucky and Freddie noticed was a coolness on the buns. These regular-sized buns were obviously stored against a bare wall and influenced by the cold weather outside.

This was one of the juiciest burgers and that is good for many points! Compared to other burgers, the size was average in both diameter and thickness. Other than that, nothing overly memorable as the meat had some salt and pepper. These two friends still talk to this day about the difficult hurdle posed by the cool, average buns.

Points: 6.0 Rating: High Average
