My first taste of Skyline Chili over ten years ago was not a good one. Back then I had a preconceived notion of what I thought chili and chili dogs should taste like. Now, hundreds of chili dogs later I see the error of my ways. Since then I’ve enjoyed Skyline Chili as well as Gold Star Chili and Price Hill Chili Family Restaurant in their hometown.
El Comelon makes the hour drive all the time and now that I’m all about Cincinnati Chili I drove us to Skyline, after we had stopped in at Smoke BBQ first.
I ate two dogs, a Cheese Coney (mustard, onion, chili and mound of freshly shredded cheddar cheese) and an Extreme Habanero Cheese Coney (same as the regular but with a habanero cheddar blend of cheese). Yes, they were both great and I didn’t find the Habanero version hot but then again I’m not a wimp when it comes to heat.
Comelon had a regular Cheese Coney and also a 4 way (spaghetti topped with shredded cheddar cheese, chili and onions). He offered a bite of it but I thought after the fact that I should have tried out a 3-Way Potato along with only the Extreme Habanero Cheese Coney. Hey, you live and you learn.
Plus, there’s always next time…counting the minutes till then…
