Review: French Toast from Tucker's on Vine

Today’s choice off the Breakfast Menu was the French Toast from Tucker's on Vine st.

I met up with a friend for a bite to eat and some excellent conversation. It was a good time made even better by this delicious french toast from Tucker's.

Tucker's is a Cincinnati greasy spoon style diner in the heart of Cincinnati's Over-The-Rine neighborhood. The place may not look like much from the outside but the menu is cheap and the food is excellent. The service was superb, with my water glass never going empty even though my friend and I stayed for a half hour gabbing away in our booth. The only problem I can see with the place is that it is small. The booths were made for a different era. My guest and I were not small men by any means and we were a little tight in the booth. The guy behind me was a bit squirmy and would bump me at my back frequently, which was a little irritating, but I don't blame the place for an inconvenient guest.

I ordered the french toast with a couple scrambled eggs. The french toast was covered in oats and fruit and was made of a brioche bread. It was fluffy and light with an eggy flavor that I could appreciate. the strawberries were fresh. It was terrific. I really enjoyed the marvelous flavor of the batter, and it was cooked to perfection. I added a little butter to each piece. The whole thing was only about 4 bucks, which was super cheap.

I give the French Toast 5 out of 5 broken eggs,
Yes it was that good, and I highly recommend you go down there and try it out. Tuckers was a real experience with people from all walks of life stepping in for a little bit of good food from friendly people.
