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.
