Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The wife and I ate at this beautiful historic diner yesterday during a local festival. The building had a perfect historic charm, the food was just like home cooking, and the staff were absolutely amazing. Our waitress was prompt, friendly, and had just a touch...of southern sass that really made the experience fun. This gorgeous small town tends to have a lot of local events, and Biancke’s will be our go-to lunch spot for all of them.More

Read good things about the breakfast in this restaurant in Cynthiana, Ky., and wasn’t disappointed. Plentiful food that was really good. Maybe too plentiful! The mound of home fries on my plate was enough for a family of four to enjoy! Service was a little...slow, but they were busy and well, we all know you can’t find people to work these days. My one wish: Get better coffee! Part of what makes eating breakfast out is good coffee. Yours is not.More

As a former resident of Cynthiana, I was eager to return to try the food and recapture past dining experiences. The service was great, but the food was disappointing. The hot brown was not up to par and truly wasn’t that appetizing and was not...literally hot. The hash brown casserole was also cold. Took home two slices of pie which did hit the spot. Probably will not go back anytime soon. I will think back to the times went there with my parents and grandparents when the food was hot and seasoned. The menu was more home cooking rather than relying on processed and frozen items.More

I heard good things about this place, read some good and so-so reviews, I had read from many locals that new owners had taken over and it was not as good and now much more expensive, I agree with both things after we had early...Dinner, the Roast beef, open faced made my Wife a little sick, my Burger was just OK at best, it was big and looked great, but not that good and I have Burger blog i do reviews from Cincinnati, to Lexington on for over 35 years now, so I know my burgers, this one was not good, we won't be back.More

Our meal was delicious. The service was attentive and efficient. We had a wonderful relaxing meal. And real mashed potatoes always makes me happy. We were way too full to eat the beautiful pies. As another reviewer said, I wish we lived closer.

We visited Cynthiana for an in-state staycation sort of trip and dined at Biancke's upon recommendation from a friend. We ate late - around 8 p.m. on Tuesday and there was still a steady flow of customers. I had Hot Brown and my boyfriend had...ribeye. We highly recommend both and shared a huge slice of butterscotch pie. Yum!More

My wife and I took a little trip to Cynthiana and decided to try Biancke's for lunch. Since quarantine is still in effect we asked for a "paper menu" which they gladly provided so we could select from our car and call in our order....I got a burger with trimmings and my wife got a Philly chicken sandwich. We took the "home-made" potato chips on the side. Both were totally excellent. Wish we lived closer so we could eat at Biancke's frequently.More

I found Biancke's when my mother moved close to Cynthia almost 20 years ago. It has been a family favorite for each of our family. We would make it a point to visit several times each time that we came back home. Their food is...delicious, a true home cooked meal experience. They have great specials and especially delicious home-made desserts - don't miss out! Highly recommend, a bit out of the way but worth the visit.More

Took a road trip with my bf, he had been here before, but ironically I had not been. I used to go to Cynthiana ever summer when I was in high school. Service was extremely slow and food was ok. Sweet tea was amazing though...
