A juicy burger’s best friend and a vehicle for delicious chipotle or ranch sauce — onion rings are pretty important, and Dayton has some of the best. 

 >> New festival this weekend has a mouthwatering menu 

Flip Side will be one of the restaurants that will occupy the new Liberty Center development when it opens later this year in Liberty Twp. The restaurant has a location at Easton Town Center in Columbus, pictured. This is the Crispy Flipside Onion Rings that are buttermilk battered with chile rubbed remoulade. NICK GRAHAM/STAFF(Nick Graham)

 So to help you celebrate this year, we asked around to see where Daytonians are going to get their onion ring fix. Here are some popular faves:

Tank’s Bar and Grill 

PERFECTLY BALANCED BATTER 

These onion rings sizzle in a flavorful batter that leaves them perfectly fried. And word on the street is, they’re BIG.  

Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen 

HOMEMADE ONION RINGS

These fresh-cut, hand-battered rings are served with homemade ranch and Cajun dipping sauce. Yum!

Red Robin 

LEANING TOWER OF ONIONS

These juicy, thick-cut onion rings are piled high and waiting to be dunked in savory southwest chipotle sauce. Try NOT finishing the whole stack before your food comes.

BW3s

BEER-BATTERED ONION RINGS

Oh, the batter! Dunked in beer batter then fried to a golden crisp, these thick-cut onion rings are served with a side of southwestern ranch dressing. 

The Pine Club

SKINNY AND DEEP-FRIED

This Food Network recognized steakhouse has deep-fried onion rings that you won’t be forgetting after your first bite. A generous portion of these skinny rings packs a lot of flavor into each bite.
