    Mom and pop places to eat in Florence

    If the weather is nice, I am taking in a Florence Freedom game Saturday night.
    Was hoping to find a mom and pop place very close to the stadium to eat.
    Livers and onions would be awesome.

    My Google results mentioned Colonial Cottage. 3-5 miles North of the stadium. Located close to Dixie High School.

    If you like pizza - Salvadores is in that same area as mentioned above. My personal opinion - it's the best pizza around

    @newarkcatholicfan ... If you eat at Stringtown, please post and tell how it went. I haven't eaten there in years so I am curious. My post isn't a recommendation. Just letting you know a local place in Florence with liver and onions.

    The Farmstand in Union is fantastic. Although I highly doubt they serve liver and onions. Florence and the surrounding area severely lacks in independently owned establishments.

    If you want a guaranteed excellent meal and service from a locally owned place, Greyhound Tavern in Ft. Mitchell is the place. It is a few exits north of Florence, about a 15 minute drive to the Florence Freedom. I don't think they have liver and onions but they have chicken livers. They have the best onion rings ever (HUGE). It is a nicer sit down restaurant, but nothing fancy.

    Don't expect much. Used to be decent, not so much now.

    I think it's been a few years, but a friend of mine has been there fairly recently and said it wasn't up to par compared to what it used to be. Maybe we both caught them on bad days.

    I stopped in there one night while waiting for my wife to get off work. Beers prices were dirt cheap. Didnít eat, but saw some food come out. Didnít look too bad at all. Said Iíd go back, but havenít made it.

    I have lunch with a buddy there about once a month. Food is always solid.

    It’s not in Florence, but, Willy’s Diner in Mayslick. When you stop at the stop sign in Mayslick, you’re sitting right in front of the place. Food is good, but make sure you leave room for dessert. Homemade pies and cakes. We drive down from Alexandria just for dessert sometimes. She posts daily specials, and desserts of the day, on her Facebook page.
