Whenever we are in Sharonville, we eat at Jim Dandy's. The first things you notice are the smokers and lots of wood. The inside feels like a traditional barbecue restaurant. It's a casual atmosphere. The food is good and filling. It's a good value and...More

I love me some BBQ, but seriously? Pulled pork is not made in water!!! Why did you pull it out of some much water and then not even bother draining it. Let's just say it came out the same as it went in. It had...More

The beef brisket and the greens were great! The coleslaw and cornbread very good. The corn bread is not very sweet. (I prefer it this way, some don't). Jim Dandy's is on the edge of an industrial district so as you drive in if you...More

Don't expect a normal restaurant feel at this place, it's a typical BBQ which is more like a picnic inside. The food was good but I guess we expected more. The pulled chicken didn't have much flavor but the pulled pork was ok. I've seen...More

Hadn't been there for a long while, and probably couldn't take the wife there. Place was dirty, and disheveled. Staff was nice but they need to get out from behind the counter and get the porch seating cleaned off once in a while. And they...More

Take a pass on this one. I got the pulled pork platter (pulled pork sandwich, two sides and cornbread)- $10.47 total bill. The employee asked if I would like the sandwich with or without BBQ sauce, of which I said moo and requested extra. The...More

Convenient to our hotel, gave it a try. Server at counter moved in slo-mo, "hey we'd like to have our food while its hot". Pulled pork average, beef brisket not too tender, plenty of fat. Normal sides expected at BBQ, best was the bread pudding....More

In true Cincinnati fashion, at Jim Dandy's Family BBQ we make a BBQ that's all our own: fresh meat, never frozen, cooked low and slow over a wood fire. From our roadside roots to our warm, welcoming atmosphere, Jim Dandy's Cincinnati Slow-Fired BBQ is authentic, traditional, one-of-a-kind good. You're gonna love it like a local.
