To function properly, the human body requires a steady stream of nutrients, sunlight, and compliments from other species about its opposable thumbs. Use your bendable digits to provide yourself with nutrients with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare and drinks at Ringside Café in the Uptown District. Part of the local landscape since 1897, Ringside reigns as an ode to the boxing world’s heaviest hitters and the culinary world’s most satisfying mouth-stuffers. Kickoff the bite bout with a bowl of Chef Roderick Nix's white chili, loaded with pulled chicken, navy and cici beans, barley, baby corn, and pearl onions, and topped with cheddar cheese ($4.95). The hearty menu pulls no punches as it hammers hunger with jaw-stretching sandwiches, entree-sized salads, and a bevy of burgers spearheaded by the Ali—a 3/4-pound behemoth that stays in shape by carrying around a heavy load of house coleslaw, sharp cheddar, and a fried onion ring ($10.95). Great Lakes craft brews keep diners from being KO’d by every boxer’s toughest foe: bland beverages.

Reviews

In and Around Columbus featured Ringside Café. TripAdvisors give the cafe 3.5 owl eyes, and 89% of Urbanspooners recommend Ringside.

  • The food is good and the prices are reasonable, but happy hour ends at 9PM, so you’ll want to get there early. – In and Around Columbus
  • Big, meaty and grilled to order. Service is good, a couple of main bartenders and even when it gets a little crowded they are good on it. – DoleJOriginal, TripAdvisor

Ringside Cafe

True to the restaurant's name, a lot of boxers hang out at Ringside Cafe. They just happen to be hamburgers. Each one of the Angus chuck patties gracing the menu has the namesake of different fighter. There's the Oscar De La Hoya, smothered in roasted red peppers, provolone, and garlic aioli, while the Ali packs a flavorful punch of coleslaw, sharp cheddar, fried onion rings, and insect metaphors.

The restaurant has held onto this boxing theme since it opened in 1897. Inside the wood-ensconced confines, diners can peruse old photos and memorabilia while savoring the aforementioned burgers, as well as chicken sandwiches and pugilist-themed beer from Brass Knuckle.
