Maybe because it northerners wearing shorts right now .. haha
But this frigid air has got me craving some chili.
Im mixed on Lupies they do serve you alot I mean alot and that place isnt a place to take a date, because you go through some napkins.

I tried their Ohio chili and there Texan both are a little to spicey for my likings.
I want chili that has a little kick but not one that I can heat up the place by blowing the fire created in my mouth.

What recommindations of places you have tried their chili?

Take the three hour drive to Raleigh for Hard Times. So seriously worth it. Haven't found good chili since I moved down here, I have to make it myself.

Logan's has some pretty good chili, and a decent portions too. Also enjoyed Sammy's in Belmont. But, then again I was pregnant when I had these so maybe that is why it was so yummy.

Wow, tough one. I've got to admit I don't have any ideas, other than Lupie's which you already mentioned. Not something you normally see on a menu.

No one has great chili around here that I have had other than when I make it... but I actually like Wendy's if you add hot sauce.

Skyline Chili in Cincinnati. Lexington is probably the closest non Harris Teeter frozen type you can buy if you're in the mood for a road trip

Amen to Skyline!!! Born and raised on the stuff. I have a pantry filled with cans. Not the same as being there though. The best place here to get chili is my kitchen. I am known for my chili. It is simple too. It isn't the Skyline kind. It is more of a home made bowl type chili.

I completely agree with this post.
My favorite is what I make at home, but I actually think Wendy's is pretty decent when on the run.

HMM, I think I'll make a big pot of chili & fresh cornbread tonight!
