5 Best Places to Get Your Goetta in Cincinnati

If you live in Cincinnati and you’re not a vegetarian, you owe it to yourself to try Goetta. It’s a local specialty you’re not likely to find anywhere else. It’s also a breakfast meat that’s mostly ground beef or pork with oats and spices. Here are 5 of our favorite places to get our goetta:


Glier’s is the largest commercial producer of goetta in the world. For one-stop shopping, visit their website to find out where to get goetta from retailers, restaurants or mail orders. Plus, for the first time ever, their annual Goetta Fest will be 8 days and 2 weekends long. Look for this Celebration of all Things Goetta on July 30 to August 2 and August 6 to 9 at Newport’s Festival Park at the Levee. Admission is free.

Eckerlin Meats:

Is there a national publication that hasn’t written about this family-owned butcher shop that opened in 1852? In addition to their homemade award-winning goetta, Eckerlin offers an amazing selection of fine meats at their convenient location at Findlay Market. Treat yourself to their egg, cheese, and goetta sandwich. They use no offal or scraps, unlike many other brands.

Avril Bleh Meat Market:

Order your goetta with or without onions at this historic full service-butcher shop and deli. You can also find Avril Bleh products on the menu at many fine local restaurants including The Moerlein Lager House and Zips Cafe.

Bellevue Bistro:

Breakfast on the signature dish at this charming bistro. The Bellevue features goetta with cheddar jack cheese and onions. Best of all, the main ingredient comes from Meiner’s Meats, a fine Western Hills butcher.

Taste of Belgium:

No one leaves hungry thanks to the generous portions at any of the nearby Taste of Belgium locations. Try the goetta hash with your waffles and crepes.
