Chili may as well be its own food group in Cincinnati, where the dish has little in common with its Texan and South Carolinian counterparts, featuring a Greek-style tomato sauce that’s tangy instead of spicy. A single-store institution, Camp Washington Chili has been serving it five different ways, 24 hours a day, since 1940. The basic is a bowl of chili. It’s spread over spaghetti in a two-way, and shredded cheese is piled on to make a three-way. Four-way means onions, and the five-way is the works, complete with spaghetti smothered with cheese, beans and onions.
