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.

      I'd like to see if you've got the cojones to come down here to Texas and repeat that statement.

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

                          I wonder how the fine people of Cincinnati and the surrounding area feel about that statement.

                            Well, the people of Cincinnati actually believe the Greek meat sauce that is put on spaghetti around there is chili, so they likely figure they're covered with a four or five way.

                              What's a five way?

                              That sounds like alotta ways.

                                A five way is spaghetti, Cincinnati chili, chopped onions, beans and shredded cheddar. I always get a four way with onions.
                                 
                                The thing about Cincinnati chili is, once you understand that it's not chili it's pretty darned good.

                                  Ohhhh...the spaghetti counts as +1 in the system but if it's a hot dog no?

                                  There's a restaurant in NYC that does Cincinnati night...and I could not figure out the ways when I looked at it.

                                      If it's a hot dog, or Coney (after the Coney Island Amusement Park in Cincinnati, not Brooklyn), it's the bun, the dog topped with the so-called chili, onions and cheese -- and usually mustard, too.

                                                What's a five way?

                                                A 3-way is spaghetti topped with chili then topped with cheese
                                                A 4-way is a 3-way with EITHER (not both) beans or onions added.  One orders a "4 way bean" or a "4-way onion".
                                                A 5-way is a 3-way with BOTH beans and onions added
                                                 
                                                A few chili restaurants (referred to more commonly as "chili parlors" locally) do 6-ways, which are not traditional and can vary widely.  For example, Dixie Chili's version tops a 5 way with fresh chopped garlic, while another chili parlor (can't remember which one) adds jalapeno slices.

                                                    On a scale of 1-10 (1 being go ahead...no problem---10 don't you dare) how acceptable would it be to request the chili & ways without spaghetti or a hot dog?

                                                    no problem in Cincinnati to get either of those items.....so a "1" on your scale
                                                     
                                                    A coney without the hotdog is referred to as either a phoney coney or a chili sandwich depending on which chili parlor you are at, but all of them make this option available.
                                                     
                                                    A way without the spaghetti isn't a way at all - it is an order of chili with cheese.  You can add onions and/or beans to this as well if you so desire.  Every chili parlor in Cincinnati makes this available as well.

                                                      Thank you. I really appreciate it. Even though it will be in NYC...I would not want to assume or offend. I could not tell by what I read if it was an option.

                                                      So it will be Cincinnati night...after all (in NYC).

                                                        Ah, TJ. I Figured you'd be around.
                                                         
                                                        Actually, I was counting on it.
                                                         
                                                        As I said, once you get it straight that the Cincinnati stuff isn't chili it's really good. I was at Skyline twice last week for four ways with onions.

                                                          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?
