Can you smell, what the Rocky's is cooking? That delicious aroma is coming from Rocky's Pizza Ring, at 3273 Seajay Rd. in Beavercreek.  Known to Beavercreek foodies for years, this Gem City original is nestled into the Beaver Valley Shopping Center, is behind Lofino's Grocery.  It is a little tough to find, but once you know about this little known secret, you will be back for more.  In fact on their menu, the motto is "Once Found, Never Forgotten."    Mama said knock you out with the scoop on Rocky's Pizza Ring, so we're gonna knock you out.... In this corner, we have Superfry & … [Read more...]

We just had to tell you.  We just had to tell you about something happening in your community that you have no idea about. As you know, 95% of our weekly Food Adventure articles feature local mom and pop establishments serving up great food. But sometimes, there is a need to mention something that is going on at a Nationally owned restaurant.  In this case, no one is more deserving than Bob Medlin, the manager of Longhorn Steakhouse in Moraine, located at 1921 West Dorothy Lane. We know,we know.... " the dreaded chain restaurant," but there is one thing you local purists can't … [Read more...]

zDSC05454

If Fred Flintstone  was on Colonel Glenn Highway, he would say "Yaffa Gotta Do !" ...and guess what, he would be right.

10308220_n

Usually "Toxic" means something bad.   Not in this case, Daytonians.  We know a place where Toxic means 'heavenly.' Are you a beer lover?  Then loosen your tie, let your hair down, and walk down the cobblestone streets of the Oregon District to the Toxic Brew Company.

We didn't go there once and get a few taste test cups and … [Read more...]
