Oh! And regarding Cincinnati Chili, as people with a connection to the DC area, you all may remember the Hard Times Cafe.
The original location was in a minuscule shopping center next to my old neighborhood in Rockville, MD. A 10 minute joint smoking walk from my front door. This shopping center had room for 3-4 stores, max. They were the first restaurant to offer Cincy Chili in the DC area. They never really got it right, and I haven't had their chili in a couple of decades. Amazingly, they're still there.
They do make a ridiculously great cheeseburger. Top 10 in my experience. The fries are also first rate. Try 'em next time you're in the area. And try a small bowl of their Cincy Chili. It's actually pretty good, if a little bit too cinnamony.
Where they go wrong is in the pasta and other ingredients. Never had smellier chopped onions in my life.
