I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – the Bluebird Restaurant in Norwood is one of my favorite restaurants in Cincinnati. It’s not fancy, they don’t have a website and they even have the jukeboxes at every booth (they work too).
It’s not magical but its consistent. So much so – the adorable waitress whose section we ALWAYS sit in – well she knows our breakfast order by heart (#1 with full order of biscuits & gravy and no eggs for Larry and French Toast w/ sunny side up egg, toast & sausage for me – plus OJ and Diet Coke).
After the gym one night we were starving (yes – it’s a pattern) and we decided to head to the Bluebird. We’re typically breakfast people but screw it – we were hungry and they were open!
I, of course, had to be adventurous and got the Reuben with potato pancakes. Again – delish! The pancakes weren’t as crunchy/greasy as the ones from Izzys (which I LOVE) but were still tasty. Also the corned beef was really tasty – I was pulling it out and eating it plain.
Why Should You Go? I can’t help but go – it’s “our place”. It’s very very clean – which is good (and sometimes rare) for a mom & pop diner. The service is always friendly and prompt. The prices are good and the food is too! Plus we picked up their monthly menu – it shows the nightly special and there are things on it like Chicken Fried Steak (thus the headline) and Liver & Onions.
