For those of us that haven't been in the great state of Ohio lately (for about 9 years for me)
What are some of the best places to eat in Columbus? I know Donatos (how could I forget it?) and its the best pizza I've ever had! But what else?
(If you can't tell, I miss the states and Ohio. I can't wait to get back!)
Where have you been? I moved down south 6 years ago, so my list is not based on the newest stuff around. but solid favorites. A few of are. Best burger is Thurmans. to me it needs no explanations. Best Greek is king gyro on Hamilton in whitehall. Fantastic stuff! Never had a better gyro ANYWHERE. Schmidt's for German. One of my childhood favorites for pizza is vicks in Reynoldsburg on main street. Not the fancy organic anything, just good old beer and pizza type stuff. Not better than Donatos just a change up.
Nidas on High is amazing Thai, Tommy's pizza is the best, lindys are some of my favorites
This is coming from someone who moved from Columbus in 95, and now lives in Vegas - but two of the places I miss greatly are...
China Dynasty - long my favorite Chinese restaurant and even though we have an extensive China Town, nothing else really compares. Location at Lane Ave close to campus (if still open).
Marble Gang - my all-time favorite spot for ribs, well above Montgomery Inn in Cinn that gets all the press, though again would not be shocked to find no longer open.
Rotolos best pizza..not even close.
I've been basically all around the US (FL, TX, CT, IL, VA, now Guam) I was younger when I moved (15) so I didn't get to do as much as most of yall, but I miss Bob Evans.... Lol (I know, but we don't have one here) BWW, Donatos... The list goes on..
I love some Robert Evans man! And Skyline chili.
Marble Gang easily the best ribs north of the M-D Line!!! I LOVE Monty Inn but Marble Gang is better! Rough spot in town though so be careful if going for dinner.

Tommy's Pizza, 2 locations on Lane Avenue, is out of this world
Mitchell's Steakhouse is awesome
Ocean Club at Easton is awesome
Cols Fish Markets 2 locations are awesome
