Food and restaurants in Lake Erie

Top restaurants

BBQ Joint
“Really really good slow cooked ribs. Always busy. Sometimes an hour wait time. If that happens, there are other worthy restaurants on the same strip. It's across the street from the old train station that was abandoned and vacant for thirty years and has recently been bought by the Ford Motor Company to be a headquarters for their autonomous car research and development”
