Are you looking for a place to get some delicious food in Cincinnati?

If the answer is yes, you should check out these great restaurants, which were featured on the popular Food Network show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

Pho Lang Thang

When the restaurant was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, it was located at Elder Street, but since then, Pho Lang Thang has moved to a bigger location on Race Street. Fortunately, it still serves fantastic pho with a flavorful, hearty, delicious broth.

You can't go wrong with their signature beef soup, which has a broth made from wagyu beef. Customers frequently go with the dac biet, which has rare steak, meatballs, brisket, tendon, and tripe. If you don't eat meat, the vegan pho is also excellent.

In addition to pho, the restaurant offers fantastic banh mi. Patrons recommend the house special, which includes xá xíu (barbecue pork), cha lua (a Vietnamese pork sausage), head cheese, and pate. If you don't eat meat, the banh mi chay is a great option and has lemongrass marinated fried tofu.

Pho Lang Thang is located at 1828 Race St, Cincinnati, OH 45202.

The Turf Club

If you want a great burger, you can't go wrong with this diner.

Their standard burger comes with a beef patty made with 8.5 ounces of ground Angus chuck, two slices of either American or Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, banana peppers, and mayo. If you want something a little more fancy, check out the filet mignon burger, which comes with a half-pound patty made with the ground steak.

You can also add a bunch of delicious toppings to your burger such as the house-made burgundy wine sauce, truffle oil, lump crab and lobster cake, and more.

The Turf Club is located at 4618 Eastern Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45226.

Melt Revival

When it was featured on Food Network, this restaurant was called Melt Eclectic Cafe. However, now it's been rebranded as Melt Revival.

Despite the different name, Melt still serves delicious food with fresh, high-quality ingredients, such as their signature vegetarian 3-way chili, which is made with black beans, served over a bed of spaghetti, and topped with white cheddar. Customers also enjoy their vegetarian cheesesteak, which swaps the beef for house-made seitan and includes grilled peppers, grilled onions, provolone, and a Cubano hoagie from 16 Bricks, a local bakery.

Melt Revival is located at 4100 Hamilton Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45223.
