    You shouldn't have to go out of your way in Indy for Skyline...they have plenty of locations.

    Nobody really likes to eat that stuff, it's all just an elaborate practical joke on the rest of us, right?

    Actually they do eat it, and yes it's kinda funny... but an acquired taste, helps to be indoctrinated early on in life.

    I acquired my taste for it after many beers and many evenings of many beers. personally I miss the smaller chili parlors that predated the plastic looking places around today.

    There are still some good independent ones around, you just have to dig. Price Hill, Camp Washington, Dixie, Blue Ash are all very good and superior to the Big Two.

    Well, I don't eat meat so it doesn't really matter, I do appreciate the older places with the old school feel over a skyline at noon blaring Fox News on 5 TV's

    Goldstar now has some meatless chili, so there is your new destination when in town.

    Okay, I'm just going to assume it tastes much better than it looks.

    I didn't discover Cincinnati chili until I was in college and I love the stuff. Of course I also grew up eating what passed for food in West Virginia so take that with a grain of salt.

    Not with hot dogs, Cincinnati has the hot dog part completely wrong, steamed and soft buns... YEECH.

    It's the chili, not the sub standard items they put on it (or the 2 pounds of bland cheese)

    Yep, I used to live above a GS, so I've always liked them a tad more... I've had skyline beans and rice, and am interested in trying some GS again someday.

    We use the Chili Packets from Krogers with yellow lentils, works great.

    I love me some steamed and soft bun'd hot dogs. The kind you get at skyline or at the ball game in the aluminum wrapping are great.

    Now if we are talking grill out then yea YEECH.
