So Cincinnati Quatman's Burgers
CINCINNATI ( Adam Clements) -- This one is for all you burger lovers out there. The Quatman Caf has been a staple for nearly fifty years. It's known for serving up half pound burgers and ice cold beer.
Quatman's Caf sits tucked away on a quiet side street. If you blink, you might miss it.
"We are the last street in Norwood as your going into the Pleasant Ridge area. So yeah, people do miss it," says long time server Sheila Cox.
It's so classic. So unassuming. So Cincinnati.
Halloween 1966, Purcell High School grads Kenny Talmage and Albert Imm buy an old saloon called Gribbles and turn it into the now iconic burger joint. They don't go far to find a name for the place.
When you're talking Quatman's, you're talking burgers.
The burgers are big, basic. You wont go hungry after you have a Quatman burger. For many years we had just the pickle and onion and now we have added lettuce and tomato to our burgers," says Cox.
The warm hospitality is a reflection of Quatman's late owners. Albo passed away in 2007. Kenny died just two weeks ago. Their spirit lives on with each flip of a burger.
"They kept the food consistent. They kept the beer consistent. They kept the local businesses involved with their business," says Cox.
"On a bad day it's a great place to be, on a good day it's a great place to be. It's Quatman's," says customer Jeff Mertz.
Don't expect to receive a bill at your table after you finish your meal. The folks at Quatman Caf operate on the honor system. You simply tell the cashier what you ordered and pay the appropriate amount.
