Located at Covington's perfectly-grilled core, the comic-book-themed WhackBurger aims to knock out and lock up hunger with a single powerful weapon: burgers. Burgers so massive that, as Cincinnati Magazine said, they "would still appear large when grasped by Andre the Giant's fist." As if those piled-high patties weren't enough of a handful, the kitchen still sends out every burger with a choice of side, ranging from the traditional (fresh-cut fries with house-made ketchup) to the offbeat (jambalaya, broccoli slaw). While the walls are covered in comics and superhero-inspired murals, the menu is more like a choose-your-own-adventure novel. In addition to weighing your side options, there's a choice of patty: beef from nearby Heringer Meats, turkey, or a vegetarian black-bean patty made in house. Finally, you'll choose one of more than a dozen topping styles. With bacon and peppercorn mayo, even the Classic is far from standard-issue, but and wilder possibilities take inspiration from Cajun, Cuban, Mediterranean, and German cuisines.

Montgomery Inn has seen a lot of famous faces over the years; Johnny Cash, Brittany Spears, Cameron Diaz, countless professional athletes, and every US president since Gerald Ford. The real stars, though, are the restaurant's award-winning ribs. Founders Ted and Matula Gregory started serving them in the late 1950s using Matula's homemade barbecue sauce. The ribs were an instant hit with diners and earned their first official accolades from the Cincinnati Post in 1968. Years later, Montgomery Inn has expanded both its menu?specialties now include housemade Saratoga chips and barbecued spring chicken?and locations, but the ribs still steal the show. In recent years, they've been lauded by The Today Show, CNBC, and Fox News. The restaurant has even their own grocery line, so customers can enjoy their ribs and sauces at home.
