ot-skyline chili

Having grown up in Cincinnati I am quite familiar with Skyline Chili. I find myself of late with a craving that is not satisfied with the cannned stuff, at best a pale imitation of the real thing. Currently I live in wi about a 5 hour drive from Indianapolis and am giving serious thought to driving down for lunch (albeit a late one). As I am retired and not currently in need of a new bike I figure I can afford a bit of whimsey. Can anyone tell me which of the indianapolis Skyline's is the best? I could, I suppose, go the extra miles and hit the one where I spent a bit of time as a youth. I'm thinking day trip, however, unless there is to be some racing at the Major Taylor velodrome. Heck if I had better legs, I'd bring a bike and do some riding! But there you go.

Order it online and save yourself the trip.
You could even order the packets and make it yourself.

You can get greaters online too. However the Fred Meyer here, which is owned by Kroger, now carries it and I am in Portland, OR.

I appreciate the response, however, to be honest the journey will be half the fun. I have a friend who might come along. He went to college across the river from cincy and understands the allure.
