Re: Goldstar or Skyline?
Funny how we all have such different, and extreme, tastes. For instance, I love the uniqueness of LaRosa's - I have to get it every time I visit Cincy. I also really like Donato's - great flavor and I like thin crusts.
Regarding the original chili debate: No true Cincinnatian would select the cheap imitation over Skyline. Although Empress was the genesis, Skyline defines Cincinnati. That said, I still go to J.K's Chili in Madeira quite often.
Lansing opened a Skyline last year so I go there a lot. I also make a Skyline party dip for every neighborhood gathering and it's without exception the first dish to get devoured. I'm starting to feel good and hungry...
