Guy Fieri's Spots in Ohio
Columbus, OH
restaurants
Momo Ghar Ohio
Chef and Owner Phinsto Lama is cooking up Tibetan and Nepalese specialties in the middle of an international market in Columbus. Her signature dish is Johl Mo Mo, Tibetan steamed dumplings filled with chicken and enrobed in a spicy fenugreek tomato sauce. The Choila Set, a Tibetan chicken salad with rice, potatoes and black-eyed peas is “one of the most-unique dishes” Guy has ever tried on DDD.

Sweet Carrot
Chef and owner Angela Petro brings creativity and fun to the cuisine at Sweet Carrot. The gorgeous Ohio Chicken Meatball sandwich is drizzled with a slightly-sweet, sesame-ginger sauce and topped with house-made spicy, roasted-corn salsa. “I’d order that again for the next five years,” said Guy.

Loops
Head to this family-owned joint for a taste of Chicago favorites in Columbus, Ohio. Try the authentic Greek gyro made 'the right way' with shaved spit-roasted pork shoulder and house-made tzatziki sauce. Don’t miss the Italian Beef sandwich which is drenched with a warm au jus and piled high with hot giardiniera for a tangy crunch.

Lucky's Café
Michael Symon may be an Iron Chef but that doesn't mean he's immune to loving the "soul satisfying" biscuits and gravy from Lucky's Cafe. The combo has worked for years and for good reason. Guy also stopped by to sample them, in addition to Lucky's Reuben and super yummy Baked Mac-N-Cheese.

The Turf Club
Terry’s Turf Club is hard to miss due to its flashy exterior. But the menu is just as flamboyant. The best-selling burger with Burgundy wine sauce, wild mushrooms and truffles has become a customer favorite. But what Guy recommends is the filet mignon chili, with pork tenderloin and fresh herbs.

Pho Lang Thang
Pho Lang Thang is Vietnamese comfort food at its finest. Pho, the hearty Vietnamese noodle soup, is the name of the game and this restaurant’s specialty. Locals happily queue for the fortifying beef-based broth, but if you’re in a sandwich mood be sure to check out their take on the classic banh mi, with housemade head cheese, roast pork and pickled vegetables.

Taste of Belgium - Over The Rhine
This spot serves Belgian classics that Guy finds irresistible. He declares the dense Belgian waffle to be “outstanding” and also digs the Belgian pretzel with a side of beer cheese. If you are in the mood for something heartier, try the Carbonnades — a traditional stew made with beer-braised beef.

Island Frydays
Island Frydays is the perfect destination for Jamaican flavors. Guy swings by to get a taste of the off-the-charts jerk chicken platter. The complex spice mix consists of pimento seeds, habaneros, cinnamon and nutmeg. The snapper with spicy Jamaican escovitch sauce is delicious and moist.

Melt Revival - An Eclectic Cafe
Melt serves local flavors with healthy ingredients. The popular Veggie 3-Way with Spaghetti or Redskins is a favorite among vegetarians and meat eaters alike. Guy can’t believe there’s no meat in the dish. The Yeehaw BBQ sandwich with chicken, pico de gallo, BBQ sauce and mozzarella is also a hit.

Parkview Nite Club
Locals claim this laid-back Cleveland hangout is the go-to spot for a "good time with good food." Sample their daily specials, like Tuesday's Honey Chipotle Pork Tacos made with smoked jalapeno or Friday's Fish Fries, or enjoy the Smoked Salmon BLT any day of the week.

Geraci's Restaurant - University Hts
Satisfy your cravings for Italian classics at Geraci's Restaurant, a neighborhood fixture that’s been turning out meatballs and other Old World favorites since 1956. Today the daughters of the original owners are running the joint, where cash is still the only form of payment and locals still crowd in for menu mainstays like the popular pepperoni pizza. The dough is made fresh several times a day, then rolled out, slathered in sauce, heaped with mozzarella and blanketed in extra-thick pepperoni.

Blue Ash Chili
The chili at this Cincinnati institution can be served plain, 3-way, 4-way, 5-way or 6-way. Learning the lingo didn't take long for Guy Fieri. He ordered the 6-way, which includes everything: chili, spaghetti, beans, onions, cheese and fried jalapeno caps.

Melt Bar and Grilled
It takes a special genius to make a grilled cheese lasagna sandwich. Lucky for Ohio diners, Matt Fish opened Melt Bar & Grilled with the lasagna Godfather sandwich. But he didn't stop there: The Monster grilled cheese goes mad scientist with its 13 different cheeses and three slices of bread.

Momocho
Momocho's modern Mexican cuisine is fresh-to-order, meaning they've ditched the walk-in freezers and heat lamps. Guy paid a visit for the guacamole served six different ways (think goat cheese, crab and pineapple). But regulars love the machaca, a tender coffee and chile braised beef brisket.

Sterle's Country House
Sterle's Country House has it all -- polka dancing, a friendly atmosphere and a wiener schnitzel Guy had to check out. For the past 40 years, Sterle's has used their time-tested German recipes for everything, including the chicken paprikash with homemade dumplings -- so tasty, Guy might move in.
