I liked the fact that this place had been in operation for so long. Their burgers are delicious and hearty, they have TATER TOTS! We have eaten here several times, as take out. The western burger is my new favorite, but I'm not a fan of BBQ sauce, so I ask them to leave it off. The prices are similar... More

I've been a huge fan of The Spot since before I moved to Cleveland. I was devastated (about as much as you can be about a restaurant) when I heard they had closed their doors a few months back. I was equally overjoyed when my daughter recently told me they had reopened. I went there today and really didn't care... More

If you want to take your Grandkids back in time, to the days of the soda pop fountain and hand scooped milk shakes, this is the place. The atmosphere is truly authentic to the 1950s, not too much shine like steak and shake etc.. but the real thing. We love to take the grandkids downtown to historic Cleveland and talk... More

When you go to place like this and a bunch of locals are hanging out and eating there too, you know there must be something special about the place. Taking a seat at a booth, we were mesmerized how cool this place is. The brick wall, the exposed beams, the old timey lunch counter, it was all there just like... More

I enjoy the atmosphere of the Spot, and the food is pretty good. I stop in there whenever I'm walking around downtown Cleveland, and have a burger and a chocolate malt. It's not really the place for a business lunch, or a date, but it's a fun place to take the kids for a taste of old timey lunch counter... More

Neat place. Diner like food, smashed burgers(like steak and shake), crinkle cut fries. Service was friendly. Easy on the wallet. Chicken tortilla soup didn't have any tortillas, but still had good flavor.

we met some friends there. Prices were amazing, service was outstanding, and the food was delicious. NOthing extraordinary, but if you like the old time diner style, this place is it. Burgers, fries, shakes. Made perfectly!

It's been Cleveland's place to eat since 1937, well established, The Spot has proven it is a great spot to eat. I love the 3 dollar burger, the hickory smoked bbq and I like to top it off with their famous Frosty!
