  • (the problem with Skyline is that they decided to call it 'chili,' which offends the rest of the country's sensibilities about what 'chili' should be. If they called it "Skyline's Greek Pasta Sauce," it would be an uncontroversial regional fare that would be a fun thing to try while in the Cincinnati area. Instead, Skyline is a national battleground over food ideology.)

      Not trying to debate COVID - just dropping this off here for clarification.

          Oh the critics can fuck off. Skyline is delicious. I'll fight anyone (Beau) to the death that dares besmirch their good name.

          I'm just saying, more people would find it to be an okay dish if they weren't preemptively offended by seeing the dish and then thinking, "that's not chili, what is this nonsense?" before they've even tried it.

          There isn't a much better 'Cincinnati' thing than going to an early Saturday morning youth football game (see also: any live sporting event), working up an appetite, then hitting a Skyline and grabbing three cheese coneys with steaming hot chili and ice cold shredded cheddar over top. It's a delightful contradiction that hits the spot every time. The always-fresh fountain Pepsi on the side is an added bonus.

            Alright, I can deal with the cinnamon(?) chili over spaghetti noodles but... Pepsi? Have you no shame, sir?

              I would prefer a fountain Coke of course, but Mountain Dew is an acceptable replacement for the Pepsi based on Skyline's offerings and contractual obligations.

                (I actually like making Skyline dip as a late night, drunk snack it's just that tiny hot dogs, chili and cheap shredded cheese just isn't what I think of when I think of "quality" food.)

                  Keep it up and Cincinnati's tourism board may start paying you to stop helping them.

                      So what your saying is that it's really Coney sauce?

                        Have you seen the stock footage of Skyline they use for every Cincinnati primetime spot???

                        There’s nowhere to go but up lol

                        • So does Skyline get all their chili from the portajohns around Nippert or do they gotta source it from Paul Brown Stadium too?

                          • Why isn't there a version of the hastily made Cleveland tourism video for Cincinnati? This is an opportunity, Lion, though you may love Cinci too much to make it funny.

                              I do love Cincinnati... but I'm not above trolling its residents.

                              I would film that video, but use locations almost exclusively in Northern Kentucky. No one outside of the area would know any better, while Cincinnati residents would recognize the locations, KNOW that outsiders wouldn't know the difference, and they would allow it to drive them insane.

                                    Lions right. It should be terrible, but sometimes there is nothing better than 3 cheese coneys, all the way, with hot sauce.

                                      Only, every out-of-stater avoids Detroit (or anything near it) like the plague, so no one has a clue what DCC or DCI even is.

                                          I don’t think Detroit having coney dogs is a uncommon piece of knowledge to have.

                                          At least amongst the big bellied or people with Food Network

                                                The convo about coney dogs made me so hungry I forgot the topic was about chili.

                                                      • Was introduced to Skyline a couple of years ago on a visit to Cincy. My friend insisted I had to try it after showing him some of the finest fare the NYC and LI area has. Very odd food but damn if I didn’t enjoy it. A cinnamon flavored bean sauce over spaghetti and a couple of tiny hot dogs with chili and cheese. Washed down with some Rheingeist beer.

If you can prop up a slightly better than Sonic burger as the real deal, then accepting Skyline as chili shouldn’t be that hard. There… I said it.

Anytime you head to a game downtown (and downtown Detroit is honestly rather nice, it's the surrounding neighborhoods on the outskirts that gives it a bad rep), gotta head to Lafayette Coney afterwards for a little post-game meal. The absolute best.
