That "awful Cincinnati chili" is indeed an acquired taste, but then so was beer for me.


The "five way" has beans unless you order it the way I do, which is a "6-way no bean".  That is a 6-way shown in the photo.


The beans I find are rather waxy and tasteless.  Which for some would be a plus to dilute out the other flavors.


How many here have ever had Cincy style chili?


If you haven't had it, could your negative opinion be incorrect?


(I eat it about once a month myself.  I don't crave it.  If I never had it again, fine, and the chili I make at home is quite different.)

Oh, that place in the photo is one of the Blue Ash Chili parlors which is where I go when I want some, but not that large. :93: :57: :86: :)

We have Skyline Chili in Columbus. My particular suburb has two locations alone.


I have it from time to time. Very Mediterranean. You can taste the cinnamon and curry in the "chili"


Skyline doesn't offer the 6 way with jalapenos, as far as I know. Unless it's a secret off-menu item. So they have hot sauce packets instead.


So it's a boiled hot dog on a soggy, steamed, untoasted bun, with a curry flavored coney sauce, raw onions, and a mound of finely grated generic tasting cheese. Meh.


Never tried it with the beans. I've also never had Gold Star, or any other brand of Cincinnati Chili.

Chili should not be viewed as a zero sum.   I do enjoy Skyline's chili flavored product.

Once did a blind taste test of Skyline, Goldstar and I believe Dixie chili cheese dogs (or coneys or whatever they call them) and I apparently like Goldstar the best.

Although I've only tried Skyline, Dixie is my favorite.


A southern themed Cincinnati Chili chain located entirely in the Cincy's Kentucky burbs?


Can't. Go. Wrong.

I have not tried Cincy style chili, but I'd like to and I assume I'd enjoy it

When is the last time you have gone? They have added Gouda and Crispy Jalapenos to the menu. I got a skyline we can walk to to and kids eat free on Tuesdays. My girls like it.

My guess is you would find it very strange and not very good.

It just doesn't taste anything like chili.


It's more of a sweet curry sauce, served over noodles.


Beans are optional, and come on it, not in it.


The onions are not cooked in the sauce, but served raw on top.


They do dish out a lot of cheese, which is nice I guess.


If you are going in there knowing what to expect, then it might be alright.


But if you are going in there expecting to get a bowl of chili, you are going to be sorely disappointed.


I don't know why they even call it that.

Very good summary.  If you know what you are about to get, you might be OK.  First time I had it I was sorely disappointed.  It was awful.

I'm sorry but I'll take the word of the dozens of authentic Mexican restaurants I've eaten at over someone from Texas. They all serve it the same way. A spoon of seasoned beef, a spoon of enchilada red sauce and yes a spoon of pintos. Me and the transplanted Hispanics seem to be the only ones that order it. None of them have ever sent it back btw. And it's downright tasty. Not surprised that  Texas got it wrong or that they're too full of themselves to know it or admit it  ;)
