Jungle Jim's is fantastic. They've got food from all over the world, most clearly labelled with country of origin. They are also the only place I still know of that sells RC Cola. The store is very family friendly but tends to get very crowded during peak hours. Even if you're happy with your current market, Jungle Jim's is totally worth a visit.

Hands-down, this is the best grocery store in town. If it exists, and you need it, Jungle Jim's almost certainly has it. You will find a huge variety of ethnic foods, odd-ball produce and meats, as well as a great beer and wine selection. Jungle Jim's is also a good place to check out some cigars. And, if you're in the mood, there is also a state liquor agency on site.

If you're planning on visiting, give yourself plenty of time because there's seriously so much to see-- from the massive international foods section to the audio/animatronic lion dressed up like Elvis.

Jungle Jim’s is an extremely weird, 300,000 sq. ft. international grocery store outside Cincinnati. The bathroom, however, is in a class of it’s own in the odd-department. From the outside it looks like you’re about to walk into a porta-potty, but when you walk in there’s a long hallway that leads to a very well-maintained lavatory. It’s over-the-top and completely kitschy.

My favorite grocery store of all time. It's a 25 minute drive for me and totally worth it. They have the largest selection of everything, cheese, wine, beer, every possible international food. For those with diet issues there is a whole row of gluten free beer/ciders. Their gluten free section is the largest I have ever seen and is stocked with great brands. It is something you have to experience for yourself. (also they have a "normal" grocery section as well).

If you can't find the food you're looking for here, it doesn't exist. Okay maybe it does, but this places seems to have almost everything. The best part is the food from around the world that is neatly shelved by country. Do yourself a favor and be adventurous next time you're shopping and try something new. You'll never get bored shopping here.

This place is fabulously kitschy and has a seemingly endless amount of food. Their hot sauce aisle is legendary. There's a whole international area where you can get foods from all over the world. My Brit husband loves that he can get his hobnobs here.

Fantastic, unique, gigantic, fun... Going here, even though on its face it is just a grocery store, is always an experience and always a great time! Be sure to watch the movie, too, in the small theatre of how it all started
