    The gravy fries here are not quite poutine but pretty close with brown gravy, crinkle cut fries and a mound of cheese.

    I LOVE coming here for the cheese coneys and gravy cheese fries! This mom n pop shop has been in the city for a while and has some of the best local chili. If you are visiting, make sure you swing by. The prices are reasonable and you won't be disappointed. CASH ONLY.

    Visited Cincinnati for the first time this past weekend. Also like to try out local places and this one was great. The service was good, the food was good and the price was good.

    Pleasant Ridge Chili 3-2-17 Montgomery Ave, Cincinnati Total Bill $15.94 Initial impression- Small diner style eatery- recently renovated. Wait staff very warm and friendly. We arrived at lunch time and the restaurant not overly crowded. Debbie's review ⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2 I order a three way and a chili cheese sandwich. The 3Way was meaty and plenty of finely shredded cheese the pasta wasn't mushy, but could have been less cooked. The chili itself wasn't spicy enough in my opinion - missing the cinnamon and missing a kick of heat, needed to add a generous amount of hot sauce to ramp up the flavor. The chili cheese sandwich was good, plenty of chili & cheese. The bun wasn't over steamed and was fresh w/ a good chew. My overall impression of Pleasant Ridge Chili is lacked the true Greek chili spice I find a good Cincinnati chili needs. ⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2 Steve's review Pleasant Ridge Chili 4 way and cheese coney Ambiance was old time but newly remodeled diner style. Even had a juke box. Staff very attentive and friendly. (Vicky was great). 4 way. Chili at PRC is in the "beefy" category and not as tomato/spice based, so was just a teenie bit loose. Good flavor that I used hot sauce on to jack up. Pasta was okay, not smooshie, but I prefer closer to al dente. Cheese was mild, which I am finding is typical. Coney dog had great flavor and bun was as well. Chili was perfect style for a coney. Because of the overall experience and the coney: 4 stars.

    Yes, it's called Pleasant Ridge CHILI and, yes, they serve Cincinnati chili. However they have other items that are good as well. My son and I went for lunch one day. He got a three way, I got just a basic cheeseburger, and we split an order of gravy cheese fries. The cheeseburger was great. They cook them on a flat top which is how I like them. We both really like the fires as well. My son keeps asking when we can go back. CASH ONLY

    I love this place. Great standard breakfast and huge sandwiches. Their gravy is the best in town, so gravy home fries or French fries with cheese are awesome. They have good Cincinnati chili as well. Gyros here are wonderful too. I also the Danny Boy.

    This restaurant/diner is a wonderful place to sit, eat and visit with friends. Breakfast is my favorite type of food, and fortunately breakfast is served all day long. The staff is friendly and efficient, and the restaurant is very clean. I think I could eat here several times a week and not get tired of it. I will be back, when I get to Cincinnati again.

    I have lived here a long time and my sister took me this weekend. First thing I noticed when I walked in was how clean it is! Spotless! Our waitress was so friendly and kept my coffee full of hot coffee. The food is really good too. I had goetta,, eggs and toast and she had the gravy cheese fries with a burger. Those fries are sinful! Can't eat just one. Can't wait to take my husband!

    My fiance and I have made it a tradition to go and get Gravy Cheese Fries after sporting events now!! We really enjoy the gravy cheese fries and cheese coneys!! Remember to take cash because cards are not accepted. Definitely good food and worth the visit!!

    I've been a regular here for the last 3 years since I moved to Pleasant Ridge and they never disappoint. One must have their gravy cheese fries of course! Great place for breakfast or dinner. Their hours are a plus - just closed on Sundays. Don't forget to bring cash, but there is an ATM in the back. The servers are nice and friendly, and if you're not a regular, go ahead and grab a menu in the front and sit in one of the booths. They can get busy during peak dinner hours and service can be slow depending on the number of servers, but they mean well. A great place to get a late bite when out at night, or to cure that hangover.

    Great breakfasts, sandwiches, gyros and chili. Awesome gravy cheese fries or home fries. Not a fancy place at all and small, but live this place.

    I took my boys to PRC after practice for a quick dinner. Only my second time there, first for them, and they loved it. Cheese coneys were good, service very attentive and the prices were comparably low. Interior decor is a little dated but it looks cool. Very clean. The exterior signs are awesome. Other guests there were very friendly. Only wish they were open on Sundays for breakfast and we'd walk there! Look forward to someday trying the gravy fries. Not sure I am up to that yet. Look forward to sitting at the counter next time when all food is better.

    I am a regular and although, I like many, started going here as a late night place to eat, I now come here regularly during the day and evenings. I love breakfast and they serve up a great breakfast, including their well known hash-browns with cheese and gravy. I love their omelets and my friend loves their French Toast! Their double-deckers have lots of meat on fresh bread. So big and fresh! I like their chili but there are others I like better but like all things, we all have our our preferences. But what I do like is the size of the carry out 3 way. This place is cash only which can sometimes be hard when we live in a check card society but I don't mind. Their recent renovations have updated the seating and lighting and it looks great!
