Eli's BBQ Grand Opening at Findlay Market

We invite you to join us as we celebrate the grand opening of Eli’s BBQ at Findlay Market. From its humble start as a weekend market vendor in 2011, to its entry on the restaurant scene on Eastern Avenue in 2012, to its latest expansion to a fulltime storefront operation at the market, Eli’s BBQ represents what is best and most important about Findlay Market: its ability to incubate successful small businesses.

Eli’s BBQ was the only Cincinnati restaurant named to Yelp’s Top 100 Places to Eat in the U.S. in 2015; was named one of the Barbecue Bible’s Top 10 Smoke and Fire Restaurants in the U.S. in 2014; and has received numerous local “Best Of" awards and recognition.

The City of Cincinnati’s Department of Trade and Development contributed approximately $165,000 to “whitebox” the 1000 square foot storefront where Eli's is located. The City of Cincinnati’s investment in the Eli’s space and two other storefronts on south side of Market House help create more foot traffic and vibrancy on this “quieter” side of the market.

Another exciting thing about Eli’s, aside from the fact that they are returning to the place where they got their start, is that they will stay open until 9:00 PM seven days a week.
