    The only Hoggy’s I’ve ever been in is actually the one that’s staying open–my high school class actually had its 10-year reunion there.

    As for City BBQ, though, I can’t say I was particularly impressed with them, either. Went to the Reynoldsburg one years ago, haven’t been to any of their locations since.

    I’ve not had the BBQ at Park Creek, but you bring up a good point about good BBQ at other restaurants. I’ve enjoyed plenty of BBQ meats, pulled pork and other items on menus all across the city. BBQ doesn’t seem to be something that really needs it’s only specialty restaurant. I’ve heard people rave about the BBQ at Flatiron, and there’s some surprisingly good items at High Beck too, which has a smoker out on their back patio.

    It’s sort of like fish. Columbus doesn’t have a ton of seafood restaurants, but you can find great fish dishes on just about every menu at any good restaurant. Some of the best seafood I’ve had in my life came from an anniversary dinner at The Refectory a few years ago.

    Good point. Make one really solid BBQ or seafood entree among your other items versus a whole spread that’s just average at best. Low and slow, baby!

    When I lived in D.C., I was always blown away by the seafood there. I was like “Well, close to the ocean its gotta be better.” But later I realized that there wasn’t a real reason why we couldn’t have seafood like that here. It’s just that we don’t put as much emphasis on it.

    Since I’m tired of driving up to Henderson to get my City BBQ fix my fingers are crossed for them to come to Grandview.

    Anything new with the former Hoggy’s location in Grandview? Is Giant Eagle moving to Grandview Yard?

    Giant Eagle is moving across from the yard, on 3rd.

    Or an wood fired oven pizza shop. Though a Massey’s would be a good addition, that space is a little large…

    Well, there’s a new one opening there, but there hasn’t been an official statement on whether or not the 5th Avenue store or the Neil Avenue store will close, though most are anticipating that it will be one or the other or both…

    This can’t be right, but one of my coworkers says it will be an Olive Garden.

    I think it is too small for that.

    + 1 billion! City BBQ closer than Upper Arlington would be fantastic.
