Revolution Rotisserie & Bar is a lively neighborhood gastropub that will satisfy your appetite for elevated comfort food. In addition to serving up the best rotisserie chicken in the world, our unique signature “Chitas” (chicken pita sandwiches) and handcrafted pies for dessert certainly create a memorable dining experience.

Making food this good is a labor of love. At our restaurants, our goal is to cook our hearts out for you as if you were our family. Starting off with only the freshest ingredients lays the foundation for everything else to fall into place. Unlike many comfort foods out there, our flavors are bright, distinctive, and balanced throughout every dish on the menu.

Behind the bar, there’s something for all tastes. We have an excellent food-friendly wine list, including reserves hand-selected by the owners. Our rotating, seasonal beer offerings strike a nice balance between local craft beers, rare finds, and some tried-and-true fan favorites. Above all, we’re known for our tasty craft cocktails, especially Moscow Mules, and our one-of-a-kind seasonal libations which feature a wide variety of fresh ingredients, infused spirits, and shrubs.


At Revolution Rotisserie & Bar, our mission is to make a positive impact on the world around us, one person, one experience, one neighborhood at a time. The name “Revolution” was initially inspired by our chickens revolving inside the rotisserie oven –nothing short of mesmerizing to be clear. But over the years, the meaning of “Revolution” has evolved and become so much more than that. On our menu, we pay homage to revolutionaries who changed the world. Even our walls are decorated with hip, revolutionary-inspired artwork you won’t find anywhere else but within our restaurants.

Further, we like to think Revolution Rotisserie has positively impacted the community around us. We believe in warm hospitality, serving great food and drinks, and bringing people together for a good time, every time. We encourage you to be the change you wish to see in the world. Find a cause you believe in. Come together and make a positive impact. Of course, you can’t start a revolution on an empty stomach. So come hungry, grab a drink, and enjoy an unforgettable meal at a revolutionary place.

Nick Pesola, Founder & Owner of Revolution Rotisserie & Bar in Ohio


In the summer of 2014, at the ripe age of 25, founder Nick Pesola opened up a gourmet rotisserie chicken tent at Findlay Market with a dream and something to prove. That summer he sold so many signature “Chitas” and rotisserie chickens, these birds were practically flying off the rotisserie! After such a positive reception, Nick knew the time was right to expand and open a brick-and-mortar location in Cincinnati. It was at his Over the Rhine restaurant that Nick added full-service hospitality and a craft bar program to meet the demands of the up-and-coming neighborhood and that’s how Revolution became a “Rotisserie & Bar.”
