City View Tavern Restaurant Review

: Cincinnatians like to argue about which side of town has better burgers and which hillside offers the best city views. If you're the kind of person who has a "Burger Bucket List," this east side Mt. Adams neighborhood tavern is an ideal place to get a taste of the action. You can't go wrong with the signature dish: The Big Ted Deluxe. It's a peppery, six-ounce, hand-formed patty, griddle-cooked and served with American cheese, brown mustard, ketchup, onion, mayo, lettuce and tomato, served on a white bakery bun. You can get a side of locally made potato chips --- plain Husman's or Grippo's BBQ. Pair it with a beer or the pub's Bloody Mary and enjoy the view of downtown from inside the small dining room or out on the deck. There are a couple of vegetarian options, too --- namely grilled cheese. Regardless of whether or not you think it has the best burger, City View surely has the other burger joints beat when it comes to the scenery.
