2. Montgomery Inn @MontgomeryInn_ -
For the longest time if you mentioned BBQ in Cincinnati the first thought was Montgomery Inn. While the food is still the highest quality in town the Montgomery Inn was unseated as the best place. The food is still great and the atmosphere top notch, but they are not the best in town anymore.
