If you like chili, you'll like Dixie. We think it's superior in every way to the 800 pound gorilla of chili - Skyline Chili. The decor is refreshingly retro, the staff is as friendly as can be and the 5-way is the best.

NOT your "cookiecutter" trash; THIS is REAL. A neighbor business says this is "Cincinnati-style Chili". We had no idea there WAS such, and we were hesitant- - in Virginia, chili often means terribly overpeppered inedibles. What Virginians often accept as chili HURTS.

We tried Dixie, Skyline and Gold Star (yes, all within the same week) and he didn't tell me which he thought was the best but let... More
