Poll: Gold Star or Skyline?

We have now officially visited the two biggest chili parlor chains in Cincinnati, Gold Star Chili and Skyline Chili. Clint preferred Skyline (he gave Skyline a 3.9 and Gold Star a 3.75) while Alison, who only ate Skyline pre-quest, preferred Gold Star (she gave Gold Star a 3.75 and Skyline a 3.5).

Now its time to ask our readers, which big name in Cincinnati chili do you prefer? Do you believe that Gold Star is "The flavor of Cincinnati" or when you are "Feeling good and hungry" is it Skyline time?

At the end of the quest we will do a poll on all the top parlors in town, but for now we just want to know which Cincy chili heavyweight reigns supreme amongst our readers.

  1. Skyline. I think it's because that's what I grew up with. My dad called it "skah-lee-nee's".

    I rarely eat it though-- I'm a Dixie girl.

  2. The real question is, how are the two of you getting along now? Is it possible for a house divided on chili to stand? :^P

  4. Are we talking coneys or in general? Skyline's ways are better but I think the Gold Star Coney is superior, mostly because of bun and dog.

  11. Skyline. We're vegetarian and Skyline's black beans and rice chili beats the pants off Gold Stars' bland veggie chili.

  12. I did rate Pleasant Ridge above both. You will get a chance to vote for them, and other parlors, in a poll at the end of the quest.

  14. Gold star is way better. Skylines dogs make my throat hurt. (Strange)

    Real preference? The Root Beer Stand in Sharonville. Best coney ever.

  15. Skyline. A lot of memories tied to it, so it's my default. But I pretty much like all Cincinnati Chili.
