Wings: they’re an iconic bar food, a staple of the Midwest, and the perfect shareable snack that goes with any sauce you want. Finding the best wings near you can be tricky, though. Here at Barleycorn’s, we’ve cracked the code of what it takes to make them perfect. In fact, we have the best recipe on both sides of the Ohio River!
Our Famous Doc Style Wings
Wings have always been a staple on the Barleycorn’s menu, but it wasn’t until several years ago when we put a special twist on them. A regular at the restaurant who went by the name of Doc requested that they be fried as usual and then tossed them in hot sauce. When they came out, they weren’t crispy enough, and his server said they would make up a new batch for him. Doc said no, just throw the wings already covered in hot sauce back into the fryer.
The server hesitantly brought them back to the kitchen and put them back in the fryer, much to the worry of the cook. The result: extra crispy, flavorful chicken wings! We loved them so much—and so did other customers who started ordering the same thing—that we put them on our menu and named them after Doc himself.
Barleycorn’s is well-known for their delicious sandwiches. Our pastrami reuben is a customer favorite, with perfectly seasoned pastrami, tangy sauerkraut, and creamy thousand island dressing stacked on top of fresh marble rye bread. The chicken salad sandwich is also a popular choice, made with Barleycorn’s own special recipe chicken salad served on a Servatii pretzel roll. And for something a little different, try the lightly-breaded fried grouper sandwich. We also offers a variety of other sandwiches on our menu, including The Wildcat and the Hot Bavarian. Filled with tasty fresh ingredients, our sandwiches really hit the spot!
Burgers are the all-American classic. You can’t go wrong with a juicy patty piled high with all your favorite toppings and condiments. We have a variety of great burgers* for every taste, from the all-American classic cheeseburger to gourmet burgers with various toppings. Each one of our burgers is completely customizable! Just let your server know what you want and we’ll do our best to accommodate you. Barleycorn’s is the Cincinnati area’s favorite place to grab a burger and beer with friends to watch the big game.
