Restaurants in Cincinnati
Skyline Chili
Being a city founded by German immigrants, it is a little surprising that the most characteristic dish of Cincinnati isn't Central European. "Cincinnati-style chili" is a chili-like sauce with meat, it is usually served with spaghetti or hot dogs. In both cases, with plenty of grated cheese. Skyline Chili is a restaurant chain, one of the many specialized in this type of chili that can be found in Cincinnati and in the region. The most famous, and the place we stayed, is in a central location, just two blocks from Fountain Square. Neither outside nor inside made much of an impression - to give you an idea, it is like a typical American movie cafeteria of the 80s, with Formica tables and a type of decoration that Spain has not seen from the super-duper time. Due to its location in central business district, is frequented by local office workers who want fast food at a moderate price. C'mon, it's the kind of place where a tourist does not visit by chance. This is a shame, because the chili prepared here is worthwhile, what sets it apart are the dishes with chili, especially the 'three-way', a big plate of spaghetti covered with chili and, literally covered with cheddar cheese. It comes in three sizes: Small , regular and large. I ordered the regular, and it was a good plate of spaghetti. The combination of the three ingredients is downright amazing and I found it delicious. The service is effective and expedient (they are not used to people being too long at a table) and they do not serve alcohol (to pay less tax). I would not say that the experience is wonderful from the culinary point of view, but you discover a dish that you can prepare at home (the chain sells chili and is available in supermarkets) and to feel, for a day, as a Cincinnatian. It is worthwhile.
