Food Adventures with the Big Ragu and Crew: Another installation of “Small Bites.”
Here in “Small Bites,” we feature some of our favorite food items across the Dayton area. We are not food critics, we love to eat. Often imitated never duplicated, we set out to let you know about some of the better eats around the area that you may not know about !
Our first small bite is actually a coming attraction. Two of the most popular burger joints in the Dayton area are going to have an old fashioned “Throwdown!” at the Rock n’ Green Tomato Festival in Miamisburg, Ohio. The Hamburger Wagon of Miamisburg will go toe to toe with Voltzy’s Rootbeer Stand of Moraine. Get to this festival and cast your vote on Saturday June 9th. Who will win this burger brawl to settle it all ?? We visited with Voltzy’s owner Rick Volz and the Hamburger Wagon owner Jack Sperry, and they both think they are going to win ! The Throwdown is in the early stages, so there will be more details in the coming weeks. Look for a follow up feature story from the Big Ragu in May right here on DaytonMostMetro, when we will cast our votes for the best burger!
THE SANDWICHES at JIMMIES LADDER 11:
Are you looking for a great, casual bar and grill that serves up top notch sandwiches? Food Adventures recommends that you try Jimmie’s Ladder 11 on Brown Street. Jimmie’s ladder 11 resides in an old renovated 1892 firehouse and is full of atmosphere. They also make some amazing sandwiches. One of our favorite sandwiches is the Ladder 11 which consists of Romanian Style Pastrami, Corned Beef, Hand Cut Cole Slaw, and House Russian Dressing on Rye. The menu has a large variety of sandwiches, pastas, and some incredible appetizers. Try the creole cheesecake…… you will not be sorry. Jimmies Ladder 11 is located at 936 Brown Street across from Miami Valley Hospital. For more information, check out jladder11.com.
From the crepes in Paris, France to a Chocolate Crepe from a street vendor. We have been fans ever since! Fortunately for us, we have Crepe Boheme located at the 2nd Street Market in Downtown Dayton. Today we even opt for for a Vegetarian Crepe rather than the crepes made with Nutella. The Crepe-Master Sabine skillfully pours the thin layer of batter on the hot plate and the magic begins. We suggest you try a create your own crepe you with: Spinach, Tomatoes, Mushrooms, Brie and an incredible Red Pepper Sauce. For the carnivores out there, you can always try the Black Forest Ham Crepe. This crepe is packed with Black Forest Ham, Brie, and topped with Mushrooms. Give Crepe Boheme a try and you will be hooked!
THE 2 FISH OR CHICKEN SANDWICHES FOR 2 BUCKS at RALLY’s:
Two dolla to make you holla! We don’t usually write about fast food chains, but every once in a great while, we will see something worth mentioning. Such is the case with the current deal at Rally’s Hamburgers, the infamous double drive-thru place. The Big Ragu’s obsession with fast food had him doing a double take. Rally’s has a deal of 2 fish or chicken sandwiches for 2 bucks total. The sandwiches aren’t tiny either. The bang for your buck is great. Satisfy your hunger for 2 dollars? When is the last time that happened? Other monster chains are charging around 4 bucks for the same thing, so make sure you stop in at Rally’s for this fantastic deal during the Lenten season.
