Taft’s Ale House 
    1429 Race St., Over-the-Rhine
    Located inside a former church, the building is an ode to Cincinnatian and former President William Howard Taft. The multi-floor brewpub maintains some of the sanctuary’s charm (like the bell tower). The 14 beers on tap and a menu focused on tri-tip beef are practically begging you to spend Saturday afternoon drinking there.

Herb & Thelma’s Tavern
    718 W. Pike St., Covington
    Open in 1939 as Heine’s Café, the small drop-ceilinged dining room is what some may call a “hole in the wall.” Their incredibly friendly staff serves up simple but delectable made-to-order burgers. Their speciality is a  juicy meat patty topped with cheese, onions and pickles; a short list of sides includes chili, soup or Husman’s chips.

Pompilios
    600 Washington Ave., Newport
    This restaurant, where the toothpick scene in Rain Man was filmed, has been offering classic family Italian food since 1933. You really can’t go wrong with any pasta dish. Play a game of bocce ball on the back court in the warmer months or grab a burger in the attached Colonel Pomp’s Tavern.
