It's not really chili.  It's Greek meat sauce.  Sorry I couldn't help myself since I can't stand the stuff.

It is really chili, a "regional variant", you know, the things that any true Roadfooder is supposed to not just accept, but celebrate and uplift?

Oh, I was celebrating and was very uplifted as a true Roadfooder!  That was just MH's usual comment and I couldn't resist.

I grew up eating at home what is now well known as Cincinnati Chili, but in Indianapolis. Then 6 years in Cincinnati at the University of Cincinnati in the early 60s I never once heard of Cincinnati Chili or remember any chili parlors. In reading a little bit of history it seems it was just taking off about that time and getting popular. I wasn't sure what it was all about until we stopped a few years ago at Skyline. The cinnamon and spaghetti noodles were always part of chili as I knew it. So I wonder if it is truly a Greek meat sauce or just Greeks starting the craze in Cincinnati from what was truly regional. How it got into our house I am not sure. My mother was from Ft. Wayne, IN in the north. I do have some strong multi-generation ancestry that came through Ohio and Butler County just to the north of Cincinnati on my father's side.

Yes. 
 
I will go out and get some coneys (hold the mustard, light onion) to re-fuel.

I grew up on the Westside and have never eaten at Price Hill Chili. I never even knew where it was until the other week. I always thought it was more into Price Hill than what I would call Western Hills. Definitely on my "to do" list.

I'm impressed. 
 
I used to really like Empress, and there's still a few around the tri-state, but I had it a few years ago and wasn't overly impressed.


Hey. I really like Greek meat sauce over cooked-to-death spaghetti with onions and cheese (I'm a four-way with onion fan).

Really? There are no chiles in it. Without chiles it can't be chili.

Good to know, but I bet if you asked Lisa to cook the spaghetti a little closer to al dente, she'd do it for you; as long as you didn't piss her off too much on the day in question

We always cook pasta to al dente. What has that to do with a four-way?
