Tank’s Bar and Grill slashing some late-night hours; customers react

A Dayton restaurant that has been serving up very, very late-night grub for decades is dramatically cutting back its hours of operation.Tank's Bar and Grill, the much-loved tavern at 2033 Wayne Ave., announced the changes in a Facebook post. 

“To all our most valued customers. To continue to give the most phenomenal experience, Tanks will be adjusting our hours. Due to decrease in late night business and finding quality staff, our new hours starting Monday April 23 will be as follows: kitchen hours- Sun, Mon, Tue, Wed, Thurs are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday our kitchen (will be open) 7 a.m. to 1 a.m.Bar will be open till 11 on Sun-Thur. And until 2 on Friday and Saturday. Please note all carryouts must be phoned in 30 minutes before kitchen closing.You may of course order food up until closing time of kitchen to enjoy in dining room. We will have been in Dayton 31 years In May and want to continue to serve Dayton and our Great customers! You are the reason for our work, not the interruption!”

The restaurant — which serves dinner, lunch and all-day breakfast — has been open 7 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. daily for many years. 

This is the second time the restaurant has cut its hours in recent months. 

>> Tank’s Bar & Grill has new late-night hours

In October, Tank’s announced it would close at 1 a.m., and its kitchen would close at midnight on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Its hours Wednesday through Saturday remained the same, with the bar closing at 2:30 a.m. and the kitchen at 2 a.m.


As noted above, the new kitchen hours are:

Sunday through Thursday  — 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. (the bar will close at 11 p.m.)

Friday and Saturday — 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. Friday (the bar will close at 2 a.m.)

Many of the restaurant’s customers did not take the news well, as it was posted by the restaurant on Facebook.

While there were many positive responses to the restaurant’s Facebook post, a few customers said they would no longer return to the restaurant or feared that dark days are ahead for the restaurant.

In exchanges with customers on the Facebook page, the restaurant said the hour changes should not be taken as a bad sign. 

“I can assure you Tanks is NOT closing ever. We simply have to adjust to what makes us better. Trying to find quality staff to work late at night when we do not have the business to support it is not fair to them,” the restaurant’s Facebook administrator responded to one Facebook comment. >> Your ultimate guide to the best burgers in Dayton


A Dayton sandwich so good you’ll say: ‘Pork Lord, have mercy’

A Dayton restaurant has three little piggies you are going to want battling the wolf in your belly. 

Fifth Street Brewpub, 1600 E. Fifth St. in Dayton’s St. Anne’s Hill neighborhood, might be best known for its beer. But the kitchen brews up some delicious grub, too.

One particular sandwich stands out from the rest for a very piggy reason. 

>> 9 must-try sandwiches in Dayton

It is called the Pork Lord, and it had me at the words “pork” and “lord.” 

The sandwich is full of porky goodness, as you can imagine. But it will not leave you feeling like a pig. 

The $10 dish is a well-portioned combination of thin-ish sliced pork, bacon horseradish aioli and seasoned in-house pork rinds (called Crack–A–Lackin’s on the menu) on the side. 

Besides the ham and bacon, the anything but simple sandwich includes lettuce, tomato, onion, a fried egg and ghost pepper jack cheese on a telera roll.

Don’t let the ghost pepper scare you off. 

The sandwich has just the right amount of heat for those of us who love a little kick with supper. 

The egg was cooked to perfection with plenty of delicious runny yolk to sop up. 

The yolk flowed like lava when I cut into my Pork Lord. 

The sandwich is cheesy, bacon-ey, eggy and spicy goodness.

The Pork Lord was added to Fifth Street’s menu in February. 

Tanya Brock, Fifth Street’s manager, said the Pork Lord has become a customer favorite and will remain on the menu for a while going forward. 

An order of thick and crunchy Crack-A-Lackin’s are $6 as an appetizer if you don’t want to go all hog wild. 


What: The Pork Lord: lettuce, tomato, onion,  ham, fried egg, ghost pepper jack cheese, bacon horseradish aioli on a telera roll. The sandwich is served with Crack-A-Lackins, the brewpub’s house-made pork rinds.

5 events to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Dayton

Most everyone loves to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, though most of us have no idea what it actually commemorates. So, before we go getting all crazy with tequila shooters and diving into vats of chips, salsa and queso, let’s understand the story behind this American-adopted Mexican holiday.

Cinco de Mayo is the observance of Mexico’s victory — despite being outnumbered two to one — over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. If you want to be a killjoy, you can mention that the French eventually came back with 30,000 troops and overtook Mexico City.

Why this tavern just north of Dayton is a throwback favorite

When The Barnsider closed after a 41-year run in 2016, I was verklempt.

It was a destination that was an old-school part of the restaurant history of Dayton.

It was a supper club that served up succulent prime rib, chilled shrimp cocktail with a sauce that came out kicking like karate and martinis that were as stiff as they come. It was a spot that sat you down, made you comfortable and took you in the wayback machine for a time-traveling trip that only cost you the price of a reasonable meal.

>> Classic Dayton restaurants you have to try and love

Because I know that these places are harder and harder to come by with the continued chainification of pretty much everything these days, I have rekindled my love of several throwback spots that I hope never to take for granted again.

Treasure Island Supper Club, the Paragon, the Oakwood Club, the Pine Club, Joe Kiss Hickory Bar-B-Q and the Golden Lamb have all seen a little bit more of me and my money in the last six months.

One restaurant in particular that I have been frequenting of late is the Buckhorn Tavern. Located on the Stillwater River, not too far from Englewood MetroPark, this is a rustic steakhouse that has been serving hungry diners since 1943.

>> What’s on the menu at Kings Island this season

It’s a restaurant that you either know about or, more than likely, don’t. For those in the know, it’s quite a find — warm, comfortable and relaxed with no pretension, it’s WYSIWYG — what you see is what you get.

Best known for their flavorful ribs and grilled steaks, the Buckhorn Tavern menu offers plenty of other options as well. Most are priced at less than $15 a meal for dinner — a value for dinner anymore.

In addition to a full slate of succulent red meat, the menu features fresh seafood, shrimp, chicken, salads, homemade soups, sandwiches, burgers and my personal favorite — comfort foods.

If you are feeling famished before you arrive, start with the panko breaded fried green tomato appetizer ($5.99).

The ribs ($21.99 for a full slab, $15.99 for a half slab) are the restaurant’s bestseller for a reason — they fall off the bone and have flavor for days with a zingy sauce. The Prime Rib ($25.99 for a 16 oz. “buck cut” or $22.99 for a 12 oz. “doe cut”), New York Strip and Ribeye ($21.99 for a 12 oz. cut of either) are also a solid choice. Add blue cheese horseradish butter ($1.99) on top for a savory note with a pop.

Buckhorn Tavern’s homestyle favorites are also a solid option. The cabbage rolls ($15.99 for two) and beef hot shot ($12.99) are definitely worth ordering up. If you love liver and onions ($11.99), they have you covered with an option to add bacon on top for $1.50.

In terms of sandwiches, the Bistro Filet ($11.99) is a rich creation of sliced filet mignon, grilled peppers and onions, mushrooms, provolone cheese on a toasted deli roll with garlic butter and topped with crispy fried onions.

The burgers are beefy and robust and there is a nice selection of salad offerings on the “lighter side” including a turkey avocado salad ($8.99) and grilled fajita chicken salad ($7.99). The four-piece broasted chicken ($13.99) and fried pecan encrusted tilapia ($16.99) are two other dishes that did not disappoint.

But the lunch menu is the real deal of the day. Served from 11 a.m.-4 p.m., the majority of dishes cost $8.99-9.99 and are a tremendous value for what you get. And only eight miles from downtown, it’s a convenient spot off I-70 that’s easy to get to if you are looking for a change of scenery with your next meal.

Desserts change daily, so be sure to ask what’s being served. The restaurant has a full wine list, beers on draft and has all the ingredients to mix up whatever cocktail you are in search of.

No matter what night you go, regulars are always present chatting, with the restaurant’s trademark antler chandelier within sight.

I’m guessing they keep coming back because this rustic gem feels homey and is ready to serve up whatever you’re looking for, which would explain why Buckhorn Tavern has been in business for as long as they have.

This decadent new breakfast item from Bob Evans makes us proud to be from Ohio

Last month, Bob Evans revealed its most Ohio-centric menu item yet— Buckeye hotcakes.

>>DOORDASH CONTROVERSY: customers, other restaurants weigh in

We snuck out of the office to try a stack of these peanut buttery, chocolate drizzled pancakes for lunch, and I am here to report that Bob Evans knocked it out of the park.

The pancakes come loaded with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, topped with Reese’s peanut butter sauce, powdered sugar and whipped topping on the side.

>>Duck Doughnuts opens a new area location 

Now, this is coming from a breakfast connoisseur who opts for a more savory bite. However, Bob’s Buckeye pancakes have all the richness you’d hope for in a sweet breakfast option, but yet wasn’t too much to where I felt like I needed a glass of milk with every other bite.

This next part took my meal to the next level. For only 80 cents, you can top your stack with a generous scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.

A four-stack of the new Buckeye hotcakes costs $7.49.
