Becoming famous whether you're a person, thing, or place is extremely hard because you have to reach a status where a large number of people on the planet are aware of who or what you are. Some people, places, or things have been given a leg up in this competition based upon who or what came before them and created a platform for them to exist on. Either way, being named famous is one of the most lucrative titles that normally comes with some kind of downfalls.

Restaurants are one places that have it a little easier than others when it comes to gaining that famous tag. All restaurants want to be known for having a great food but if you can compare amazing food that taste good with headlining names, then you are almost a shoe-in to be labeled as famous. For this restaurant in Ohio, they were able to find the formula and are not only known all over the country but have been given the award of the most famous restaurant in all of Ohio.

The Golden Lamb was found to be the most famous restaurant within the Buckeye State due to amazing food and a number of famous people walking through the door.


The Golden Lamb in Lebanon Ohio has been named the most famous restaurant in Ohio.
