This is quickly becoming my favorite place in Cincinnati. The staff is fantastic, the food is amazing, and the clientele blows my mind. (During my first visit, a monk—dressed in a brown robe—bellied up to the counter for a soda.)

I like the Big Tucker and the patty melt. If you like burgers, you can’t go wrong with either. If you don’t like burgers, they’ve still got something for you.

Classic diner with small booths and good prices and perfectly sized plates. Service is courteous and attentive. You might be turned off by the external facade, but be sure to pop in, it's cozy and you won't leave hungry!

You'd be hard pressed to find a homegrown Cincinnatian who naysays Tucker's. They've been in the city for many, many years, and, from what I've been told, have never changed. It's true that you'll find everyone from the near homeless to suits eating here.

The Big Tuck is probably my favorite burger. There's not one thing about it that makes it stand out- it's just an all-around great tasting burger.

Pro-tip: for whatever reason, sugar tastes really good on their fries. Not a ton of it, but a decent sprinkling of sugar and salt on fresh fries taste like you're eating a little sliver of funnel cake or kettle corn. It's surprisingly delicious.

Tuckers is one of my favorite local spots, one of the few places that brings together people from all walks of life. You can get as greasy and fatty (double breakfast burger with a fried eggs and fries) or as healthy (kale, blueberry and sunflower seed superfood salad) as you like and this place has some really awesome history. If you're lucky enough to sit at the bar on a slow afternoon, ask the owners to tell you about it.

Tuckers is an OTR staple. If you haven't been, you're seriously missing out. It's pretty much 100% perfect diner food. You won't leave any thinner, but that's not really while you go. They don't have much a selection for vegetarians, but you can always make a meal out of fries! Expect slower service during the lunch rush because this place can get packed in 5 minutes, but it's worth the wait!

Tuckers is my go-to greasy spoon diner in Cincinnati. The portions are huge, the food is cheap, and the staff is awesome. The place isn't much to look at, and you won't find any fancy eats here, but thats part of the charm.

Hole-in-the-wall diner with interesting, friendly characters and surprisingly fresh and delicious breakfast. Fresh fruit and veggies with vegetarian and vegan options. Family friendly. French toast and veggie omelet were incredible!

A cincinnati institution and melting pot. Business folks to construction workers to homeless can be found sitting one booth away from each other. It's a beautiful thing. Every city seems to have a favorite diner that the locals go to well Tucker's is Cincinnati's diner.

My absolute favorite place in Cincinnati. Every time I come here I am so happy, so full, and never want to leave. Their sandwiches are huge, their hash browns are laced with fresh herbs and tomatoes, which is divine, and their beet sliders are so good!
