Every Cincinnati chili parlor also specializes in double-decker sandwiches. The Hippo is top-of-the-line at Price Hill: ham, beef, cheese, lettuce, and tomato. Extra-long toothpicks are essential for holding each half together.

A side dish of goetta. Customarily served at breakfast, goetta is also available at Price Hill in a sandwich any time of day.

Inside Price Hill. Long hours make this a popular destination eat-place from pre-dawn until near midnight. This photo was taken in the back dining room mid-afternoon between lunch and supper.

The Hippo is about as tall as it is wide. Here it is shown on good rye toast.

A pair of cheese Coneys, at $1.65 each, makes a bargain meal. Word to the wise: mustard is a great unifying flavor for this combo dog.

There's nothing wrong with the big chains that dominate the chili scene in Cincinnati, but many connoisseurs prefer the independents.
