The Big Bass Brothers love to eat! We especially like it when we get a lot of good quality food , and don't have to pay alot for it. These are the benchmarks for the Big Bass Brothers. Once a week the Big Bass Brothers get together for a "review". We head out in search of a restaurant that will fill us up, and go easy on the wallet. Mind you, this is not an unbiased accounting of the culinary offerings of Greater Columbus. The Big Bass Brothers are not really interested in the wine list, decor or presentation. ( Although a reasonably clean bathroom is a plus)
Want a "Five Belly" rating? Serve up huge portions of great tasting food and get the Brothers out the door for under $12 a man. Any less than this, and you'll get "dinged". (a ding equals a drop in rating)
Then each Friday at 3pm and 6pm during the John Corby show on 610 WTVN, the Big Bass Brothers put it on the table. The good, the bad and sometimes the ugly!
Similar in style to the Mobil "5 Star" rating system, the Big Bass Brothers award a restaurant between 1 and 5 "Bellies". The bottom-dwelling restaurant would receive a "1 Belly" rating, and the best would receive a "5 Belly" rating. "1 Belly" and "5 Belly" ratings are rare. Not many restaurants rated by the Big Bass Brothers receive a unanimous "5 Belly" rating though several have come close. None to date have received a unanimous "1 Belly" rating, although there was a spot that got a zero due to inedible food.
Some of the restaurants that have received a "5 Belly" rating from the Big Bass Brothers are:
- The Thurman Cafe
- Der Dutchman
- Hong Kong Buffet
- Ohio Deli
- The Old Summit Towne
- Old Bag of Nails Pub
- The Portside Cafe
- Nazareth Deli
