Everyone Goes Nuts For The Hamburgers At This Nostalgic Eatery In Columbus
The Ringside Cafe is the oldest restaurant that has been operating under the same name in Columbus. This boxing-themes burger joint located right in the center of downtown offers a fun, cozy, and delicious nook to hide from the hustle and bustle of the city and have a truly mind-blowing dinner.
The Ringside Cafe opened in 1837 and is located at 19 N Pearl St., Columbus, OH 43215. It's small place, sitting in the middle of the block between East Gay, East Broad, and North High. While cozy, the place is charming, with wonderful details and historic memorabilia.
The place underwent some renovation in 2008, but it's kept its charm.
The dining area was improved with some fresh paint and new tables and chairs. The downstairs party and meeting area was renovated as well. The famous delicious burgers got some remaking as well. They still have the same great names, and now they're even more delicious.
The menu is divided into Lightweights, Welterweights, and Heavyweights.
Lightweights include yummy fresh salads and Welterweights include sandwiches and entrees, like the Chicken Salad Sandwich, the Chicken Cordon Blue, and the Portobello Mushroom.
You'll find the tasty burgers in the Heavyweights section.
There are seven delicious burgers to choose from, including the "Brown Bomber" Portobello Burger, and all are served with house kettle chips, kosher pickle spears, and veggies. The famous "ALI" burger is a 3/4 pound angus patty with house coleslaw, sharp cheddar, and a fried onion ring.
Diners love to chill out at this old place.
The atmosphere, it's history, and overall character make for a wonderful and unforgettable experience. And the burgers, of course, are quite possibly the absolute best in the city. Give it a try!
