Heading down there Monday evening for a family thing. Any good places to eat near the airport?

Also, FBO recommendations/locations?

Inside the airport is Damon's. Good all around food.

I ate at Shlotzky's today...can't really recommend it.

Seriously though, they have all the usual fare from crapplebees to outback.

Just south of the airport is the city of Florence. Plenty of food to choose from there. There's only 1 FBO at CVG I believe...

If you ever get near Lunken, go to that mini-hot dog place! Not sure if there is one near cvg. is it called Skyline Chili?

skyline chili is from cincy, yes. but man, i try to avoid shitpothole as much as possible. that stuff is wicked-bad, and they're owned by mcdonalds, so they proabably use the same Grade G kangaroo meat that the main McD's use. i just can't stand either restaurant.

ended up at Karlo's Bistro Italiana...good food, good price

Also, anyone thinking about heading to CVG, have no fear...controllers were very helpful. I was departing during a push, asked for an intersection departure, was ready when I got there and expedited the takeoff so they could get the big guys out behind me...ATC was very helpful and stroked my ego with a "good job, contact departure" on the way out.

Getting in was easier...almost no arrivals when I was in...did get to see an Air France 340 head out...that was pretty sweet...

Anyway...thanks all for the idears...next time its somewhere new

sounds pretty sweet, mini. on my pre-solo X-C prog check, i diverted to sanford, FL and flew within a few miles of a 747 and when i was on short final a european low-cost A330 was holding short of 9L. that was cool, though i felt bad for him. i was putzing in there at a measly 65kts for a touch and go, and he had to wait for me. was still cool, though, to see those 2 big birds.
