    +2 on the Sonic chili cheese dogs, and the standard Taco Bell hardshells.  I still remember how good the Taco Bell's were three decades ago when the meat was cooked in palm oil, and the cheese was actually 1/3 the weight of the taco, rather than the gossamer decoration it is today.  
     
    Someday I need to fly back to Dayton OH for two things:  White Castle's sliders, and a Skyline Chili "5-way" (spaghetti, chili, cheese, beans, onions, with Tabasco).  Yum!
     
    A couple others:  every couple months I need a Toblerone chocolate bar, and once a year or so I devour an entire box of frozen corn dogs.  Go figure…

    Halibut from a fish and chip shop on Scotch bread with butter and tartar sauce and an order of mushy peas and a bottle of malt vinegar.


    I have become a fan of malt vinegar for the 5 Guys fries. They are the only fries I eat with the malt vinegar and damn they are good.

  • I'm not very fond of the French (too many reasons to list here) but they did teach me to use mayo on my fries, not ketchup. I've never been fond of ketchup anyway so it was an easy transition. Blend a bit of Sriracha into the mayo and oh my..

    I've never eaten at 5 Guys.  My Dad never put ketchup or catsup for that matter on fries or tots.  ALWAYS malt vinegar.  I like them that way too, but I'm not the purist he was.

    Taco Time crisp meat burritos and tacos every once in  a while.

    Not to tweak @Mickey, but 35 years ago Taco Time's founder, Ron Fraedrick bought a car from me, and I still feel loyalty (yes, I'm a name dropper).

    I don't really hate it because I have never had it. I just think it is hilarious that nearly every local news affiliate repeat the phrase "horrifying diarrhea sludge" when Deadspin ranked Cincinnati chili as the worst food in the country(including DC) at #52/52. Getting hit by a car was #51. @botch, watch the video I linked to. Funny stuff.

    I did watch it, and yes I laughed!  It does point out how actual investigative reporting is essentially nonexistent today, but this is getting dangerously close to the political arena so I'll stop now.
     
    And, this thread IS entitled "Guilty Pleasures".  When I flew from SLC to DC every two months or so in a previous job I always picked the flights that had me connecting in Cincinnati.  They didn't have a Skyline in the airport, but they did have a Five Star, not quite as good but better than the recipes I've found on the 'net.  Cincie chili is unique, not everyone likes it; I do, and if we all liked the same things they'd get very expensive.

    Cincinatti chili is actually pretty good. I had no clue what it was and a chef friend made it for game night a year or 2 ago and its actually pretty good. Not sure if he did his take on it or not but it was like a fall spaghetti. I went back for seconds.

    The dude that wrote the Deadspin piece is actually from Cincinnati. He likes Price Hill Chili the best. Like you said, to each their own.

    You're right about the political stuff... Let's not get into a bean debate. ;)

    I agree. I only like them in meat and bean stew.

    Ham bone makes a pot of pinto beans or pot of butter beans is the about the extent (except re-fried beans) of what I want in beans.

    @mickey, since my wife is Puerto Rican, we do a lot of rice and beans combos. There are some bean soups I do plus the refried variety. Lastly, baked beans. I grew up with blasphemous "chili" but don't call it that anymore, now that VI knows my address.
