Stopped by the famous Grandpa’s Cheesebarn in Ashland, Ohio.

This little roadside attraction is the mid-point between the extremely long drive between Cleveland, Ohio and Columbus, Ohio.

Welcome to Grandpa’s Cheesebarn

Nestled close to the scratch-your-balls and very manly Fin, Feather, and Fur – this weird tourist store is a great stopping point for all those weary 1.25 hour travelers.

Today, I grabbed some smoked gouda, steak and onion cheese, mini gummibears and zesty bread and butter pickles.

Zesty and delicious!

More importantly, I was served by the man’s man, ladies’ man, man about town…Grandpa himself.

Yep–his namesake, his crib, and hell yeah he’s working the 1940’s cash register for me #likeaboss

Just goes to show you that small town America is still alive and kicking.

Same Grandpa…just one more barn!

BTW-they are building another barn for more “stuff”

So according to The Washington Post, there’s a Gyro place called Plaka Grill that we just HAVE to check out.

Get your nails done after you have some gyros at Plaka Grill

Yes, I am skeptical because I am pretty much balls deep on Steve’s Gyros at Cleveland’s West Side Market.

My favorite: Steve’s Gyros at Cleveland’s West Side Market

So while exploring Washington DC, decided to check out Plaka Grill.

Inside walls of the restie are painted to represent outside walls of other buildings.

Weird decorations

Classic order is the Plaka Gyro.

Name-sake gyro

Restie was er… I was kinda skeptical. I guess that’s my order of fries came out quick and hot.


I am unsure on what the special seasoning is…but I would venture to say salt and pepper and dried oregano.  Nothing to write home about to Uncle Mikinos.

Would you like some oil w/ your fries?

As I started to eat my fries, I really don’t think they let them rest. These fries were still very greasy. Way greesey.

Then their name sake gyro arrived. Fatty boom ba-latty

Definitely more fat than long…kinda like your mom.

Fries that were inside this gyro was also greasy too.


Fairly large…but not as big as Steve’s…cause size matters.

The 3  small slices of bland tomato was completely unnecessary

Bland tomato = not happy

Marinated medallions of pork? WTF is pork doing in my gyro? Isn’t it supposed to be lamb?

I’d like more meat. This is a gyro right?

French Fry Gyro

2 little fingers of raw red onions…that’s it. Booooooooooooo

Busting out

Grease ruined the tzatziki cause all I taste is grease.

Tzatziki sauce should bind everything together

Yep…more slippery than a crack whore on payday.

Way too greezy for consumption

Slick Rick’s greezy meat at Plaka Grill in Washington DC is not worth your trip.

Staff at Plaka

I suggest you check out Steve’s Gyros at Cleveland’s West Side Market.

Uncle Mikanos approves of Steve.

Reporting live from a forest of greezy fries…

Me: Hi, do you have frozen lamb?

Lady: Lamp?

Me: You mean lamb?

Lady: Lamp?

Me: What?

Lady: Lamp?

Me: No, I’m looking for some fresh frozen lamb please.

Lady: Lamp?

Me: No, lamb. L-A-M-B.

Lady: Lamp?

Me: Um…

Lady: Lamp?



Any suggestions on how to prepare lamp?
