The girls at work and I go to lunch pretty much every day (oh how I need to start packing) - but sometimes we just get tired of the same old same old that's within a few minutes driving distance to downtown. We were dropping something off at a vendor and drove by Red Squirrel and thought, "Hey - let's go there!"
It's on Dalton - near Cincinnati Museum Center and the post office. It's one of only a couple locations left - a few years back a lot of them changed names or closed. It's only open for lunch and it gets BUSY!!!!
You get a container with your sandwich, pickle and a bag of chips. They have bottled drinks to choose from as well. That pickle - whoooooooooo - it is SOUR! It definitely created that pucker face you think of when you eat something sour.
Susie went for ham & sliced egg - then decided to add a little bacon (haha). She was shocked at how large this was - it's a single - and it was massive!
Dawn got a BLT ($6.15) - again - massive amounts of bacon. We all liked it too because the bacon wasn't so burned to a crisp that it just fell apart.
Why Should You Go? This is a great sandwich and it's super fast. They have probably 10 tables inside - and they are always full but there's also a huge take-out business. We are DEFINITELY going back to the Red Squirrel. It's just as close as Newport for us and it's something different and delicious!
