My boyfriend introduced me to Quatmans earlier this year and now, every time we're craving burgers we head there.
You seat yourself and someone will come and take your order, there are no menus at the table, just one on the wall. I suggest getting the special if its the cheese burger fries and drink. If thats not the special then get the cheeseburger fries and drink. Really, its that good!
There are a lot of other sandwich options and if you're not totally obsessed with the burgers like we are you can try some of their other options, the corned beef sandwich has been taunting me for the last few visits and I might just cave in and get one next time.
When you order the cheese burger it will come with onions and pickles. I suggest you get it without the onions if you're on a date. The fries are delicious and are just crispy enough, lightly salted and dipped in ketchup they are perfection.
At Quatmans they want you to feel at home so if you need another beverage go up to the cooler and get one, for beer you'll have to ask. They trust their customers and when you're done you can go to the cash register and tell them what you had, you wont get a check at your table. The meals are not too expensive and if you get the special you'll save some money. I would expect to spend about twenty dollars for two people.
Quatmans is definitely worth the trip, remember Cheeseburger with pickles!!
Forget the hamburgers there's nothing better then a ALBO HAM SANDWICH! – Now, I know that Quatman's is known for it's juscy, succulent ham/cheese burgers but WHAT ABOUT THE ALBO HAM SANDWICH!!! Oh, my God. These 'things" come in only one size...huge. And how better to chase one down, if you can finist it, with a cold draft, namely a hudy. I'm way out here in Philly town and dearly wish I could attempt the unthinkable...cheesebuer AND ham sandwich and a two draft chaser. Yo, that's what I'm talking about.....
PS: Two thumbs (bottoms) up!
Best Food and Atmosphere – This place is as unpretentious as you will find. The food is quick, delicious and resonably priced. Despite the review to the contrary, the service is remarkably friendly and very personable. Very comfortable environment, reminds me of "Cheers" and is a place I will frequent regularly!
Burgers – By far the best in all of Cincinnati. Huge burgers and alot of hot crispy fries. Cold local beer on tap served in icy mugs. You don't know a great burger until you've had these.
Best Burger? How and why!?!?!?!? – The burgers are always "well done" whether you like it or not. They are dry and tasteless. The place smells like mold and the staff is angry and rude at best. The only people who could say these burgers are even edible have to be totally smashed out of their raging alcoholic minds.
Advice for first timers – For first timers, Quatman's can be intimidating. The waiters are downright mean, they don't smile and don't talk. When you walk in make sure you glance at the chalkboard behind the bar to the right. It has the daily special. if you ask what the special is, everyone will ridicule you. Also, don't ask for anything special on your burger, it's not available. Don't request special cooking instructions, you get it how they cook it-which is medium-medium well. Get the vegetable soup but make sure it's the second day-it's better. There is no check. Get up, line up at the deli and tell them what you had. Pay with cash. Turn and leave quickly.
Quatmans beats Zips any day. – The only reason I can think of that anyone would vote Zip's burger better than Quatman's is that the Zip's voter has not had a Quatman burger. I've had both and the only comparison is ground beef between a bun. The Zip's I've had tended toward the dry overcooked side. Quatman's are bigger and juicy, and you can't beat the price. One of the best I've ever had and certainly the best in Cincinnnati.
Good food and fast service – I have been going to Quatman for over 30 years. Not much has changed in that time. The food is good although the menu is limited. A great place to stop for a burger and a beer.
quatman's- good stuff – Great resurant, tied in our ratings with Zip's in Mt. Lookout
Not Just Great Burgers!!! – Check out their daily specials too. There burgers are the best!!! Huge, hot and delicious...but they have great specials too. Fun place to eat and relax with no frufru extras!!!
