If you want a sandwich you can not get your mouth around for a reasonable price, this is your place! You will not go away hungry. Just bring cash as they do not take credit cards.

My brother works below ground for Duke Energy in downtown Cincinnati. He tells me his co-workers go grab a sandwich at Subway but he goes here. When he opens up his sandwich back at the job site, his sandwich is the envy of all. So I had to try. Walked into the Red Fox Grill (corner of Sycamore and 6th)... More

The red fox grill is delicious! Known for double decker sandwiches, they really are a great little place to eat. With breakfast and lunch items, you can't go wrong! This is a cash only diner and are often closed for most of July for vacation because it is proprietor owned.

Look up "Greasy Spoon" in the dictionary - and Red Fox will be prominently displayed. Look up "stereotypical diner waitress" in the dictionary and any one of the servers will appear. Yea. You get a lot of meat on your deli-style sandwich but quantity doesn't make up for quality. The service was sub-par (putting it mildly). Here's a tip: If... More

Great place to get filling and cheap lunch. Above average size portions. CASH ONLY. Other than cash only that is only issue. Service is fast and efficient. Throw back to another era, no frills just the food.

Soup and sandwich after a morning's work or tour? The best is the Red Fox. Home-made soups and two-inch thick sandwichs quickly served. An Omlette, grilled cheese with bacon and tomato and a 2-3-4 burger are also good. Stay as long as you like. I enjoy 2-3 meals a week at the Fox for more years than I care to... More

This Monday to Friday, breakfast and lunch establishment is located in the heart of downtown Cincinnati. The sandwiches are huge...really huge. I love their egg salad and upon returning to Cincinnati, I have to have my fix on their egg salad. Ask for a fork because the egg salad oozes out of the bread. Great people who own the place...

This is a business person's lunch spot, very casual, but consistently excellent. A favorite among locals, it's the "go to" lunch destination on the east side of downtown Cincinnati. I've been there countless times, and you see the same people time after time, so you can tell it's good when people come back. People will go as a group, but... More
