Typically, in Cincinnati, you'd order a "4 way onion" rather than a "4 way with onion"

But said either way, you'd still get the same thing, so its all good

Are there any non-chain Cincinnati-style chili eateries in Columbus, ancient one? 


If there are any non-chain places around here I'm not aware of them. Some years back Gold Star had a couple of places in town. I have two Skylines within two miles of my home.

      We had the six way with jalapeno slices at Blue Ash Chili.

      For what it's worth, the jalapenos at Blue Ash are battered and fried.

        What about that East Tennessee special called the "Chile Bun" Don't recall that having beans but as it was never one of my favorites I'm not sure. A few spoons of chili on a plain hamburger roll.

          Yeah traditional chili is without beans but lots of places include them and not all are hot,or from Texas and most tend to be sweet. I love them all and don't need no Filet Mingon or whatever to tell me its OK or not. Good is good !!!!!!!!!

            There is a special place in Hell for the people who put beans in Chili. Right next to the people who use Miracle Whip, and Ketchup on a Hot Dog....Russ

              That's heavy, Russ. Even though I agree with you, that's still very heavy!

                  That special place is taking foods for how they taste. Im not trying to start an argument but just saying that its all good.

                        Kraft Parmesan cheese in chili is even strange for me - but whatever floats your boat !

                                    actually, - thats what a three-way looks like
                                     
                                    (I say this in full but sad realization that I have just set up someone to post an entirely different picture of what a three-way looks like, one that will probably not include chili )
                                     
                                    The right hand side of the pic below shows a bowl of unadorned Cincinnati style chili. 
                                     

                                     
                                    You will most often see it topped off with something - cheese, sour cream, onions, or oyster crackers being the most common toppings

                                      Yup. Chili has beans. No beans, it isn't chili. It is meat sauce. That is what makes chili, chili, the beans. I cant believe the people on here who eschew the one thing that makes chili, chili. No beans, why bother?

                                      Chili has beans or it ain't chili. Period. You Texan meat sauce makers don't know ****. (that is with an S of course, you can figure the rest. Please meat sauce makers, don't pass your crap as chili, go execute another illegal alien and let the real cooks abide.
                                      And a Martini can only have Gin. No Gin, it isn't a Martini.

                                        There is plenty of room in hell as well. This reminds me of the roadfood commandments I once posted. And this clearly is stated in the 12th Commandment.

                                          I'm happy that sour cream is an acceptable addition.

                                            Sour cream is an acceptable -- and required -- addition to cheese blintzes and latkes.
                                             
                                            It's also pretty good with cottage cheese and lots of freshly grouond black pepper.

                                                I've not read any rules, but I do command that my likes dictate above all else, because mine, and only mine, are correct.

                                                      I love it. Some hodad from Tennessee talking smack about chili. Priceless.

                                                      I have no strong opinions of chili but my considered opinion is that's a pretty pathetic post for your one and only. Surely you can do better than that?
