    It can be whatever it wants to be, I still think it's all over rated as far as chili goes.
    To each his own, just not my thing.

    Me, you and @mcpapa can take our $12 each, hop in car and go somewhere else to get some decent food. Besides the food being average at best, I can’t even get a Diet Coke.

    If I have to eat Skyline, I’ll get a couple cheese Coneys and water. I don’t willingly go to Skyline and typically only go when a client wants to meet there, which happens a few times every year.

    $12 worth of anything that doesn't have that awful chili on it.

    3-way, couple of chilitos and an unsweet tea (have to use splenda). Skyline is my favorite but I'll eat the other Cincy style chilis. And all you folks who are not fond of Cincy style chili, that's great! That makes more for the rest of us who do! Oh yeah, I'll have a handful of candy corn and pumpkins for desert.

    My wife and I stopped there about a year ago because we haven't had Empress in a long time and in our younger days it was pretty darn good. It was sooo watered down and tasteless we actually thought a mistake was made with our order. It was nothing like we remembered. We simply could not eat it.

    You can order me a 3-way with some of the $12 you're given to spend there.

    I'd get however many cheese coneys you can get for that amount.

    Tough call.

    Depends on how hungry I am.

    I can always go for a deluxe burrito and a rootbeer. I'd probably grab an ice cream sandwich on my way out the door to get to $12. Skyline burritos are really good IMO.

    If I'm a little hungrier then it's going to be a 3 way and a chili cheese sandwich, mustard no onion, with a rootbeer.

    Must have been a bad batch that day. Their chilli in my opinion has the most taste and most meat than skyline/gold star. Now I wouldn't be upset if a Dixie chilli would come out this way.

    2 cheese coneys (mustard & onions), small 4-way (onions), diet Pepsi. Senior rate leaves me perfect amount for tip. At least twice a month is the norm.

    Along those same lines, I would figure out where the nearest Dixie Chili is.

    It’s all good. We don’t want you and MC “Scrapple” Papa to like it anyway. It’s our thing. Like goetta.

    Either a 3 way and cheese coney with sweet tea OR a Chicken Bacon Ranch Wrap with a cheese coney and sweet tea.
