Cincinnati is famous for its unique style of chili, and this is where it all began. – In Short
Served since 1949, Skyline's version is not the thick, chunky brew that typically comes to mind when you think of chili. The sauce itself is thin with ground beef and secret seasonings that purportedly include a pinch of chocolate. The 3-way is made up of spaghetti, chili and mounds of finely grated cheddar cheese. The other signature item is the chili cheese Coney, a hot dog on a bun covered with chili, cheese, onions and mustard.
The Real Cincinnati Chili – If you want to experience Cincinnati chili, this is the best place to go. Not only because this is where it all started, but because the atmosphere is great. It is the perfect place to eat late at night (usually open until 4 am). There is wide range of characters there at night (especially after a "Rocky Horror Picture Show" showing at the Esquire theater). During the day, after you eat you can go down the street for Graeter's ice cream or go shopping in interesting shops ranging from the bohemian to the African. The service at this skyline is always very fast. Its never a surprise when I get my food after waiting for two minutes. The food is delectable whether its a coney, a three-way, a salad, or any of the other options. Go to the Skyline on Ludlow if you want the real Cincinnati chili experience.
you miss it, if you don't have it! – The best. Only the best. I have had copies of the "copy cat " recipies, but never the true blue. I now live in New Orleans, the city of "great food". However, there has never been a chili like ours' from Cincinnati. Perhaps I should check into a franchise?????!!!!! I just don't think it would work here. What do you think?
