One of the new features I want to share here at Home and Garden Cafe is local Ohio attractions. I thought I’d start with some local Ohio restaurants in Miami County Ohio. Since our son is older, I wanted to feature some family friendly places, but also a few bars and grills we sometimes hit up on the weekends. The list is in no particular order, and if you’re stopping by from Miami County yourself, feel free to add your own favorites in the comment section!
1. El Sombrero~ Has two locations in Piqua and Troy, Ohio. We’re big El Sombrero fans at out house! They have a fabulous south of the border menu of Mexican favorites. I love their salsa, and their loaded nachos! My son loves their Mexican pizza and my husband is a fan of their combo platters.
My son’s also a big fan of their complimentary Sopapillas! Yum! You can find more information and their complete menu here: El Sombrero
