This baby gets FIVE stars because it excels at what it purports to be - a Cincinnati Chili joint with a thick patina of storied decades.I'll be honest - I'm no fan of what is known as “Cincy-Style Chili” - having first tried it at the SkyLine Chili in Naples, FL years ago. The notion of cinnamon in chili rubs me the wrong way - and spaghetti not al dente has never been my jam. Nonetheless, this place serves up a spectrum of Chili concoctions to please various palates.Service was cheerful and swift. Open-air kitchen very clean, as well as the dining room.I asked the server to surprise me with an order - something that they would stand behind as a “signature dish”. She said she had just the thing.“Just the thing” turned out to be two chili dogs with heaps of cheese, and then a heap of quite good French fries with larger heaps of shredded cheese.I applaud those among us who can take in that much cheese - the photos don't provide true justice. It's a magnificent amount - and given that in the old days, this sort of cheese may have been called “Government Cheese”, I suspect it's easy on the bottom line. I'd wager food costs here are well below 20%.Definitely come here - it's a charming diner in the most classic sense of Americana. I'm happy I came!
