I have my own theory about people who like Skyline. There are two kinds of people who like it. The first are those who grew up in this area (years ago, this was the ONLY place to get Skyline. It has now branched out to most of Ohio, a large part of KY and parts of Indiana. There are even several Florida locations.).
I fall into the second category of Skyline eaters - those who were drunk the first time they had it. There is a Skyline location right by University of Cinti's campus and it stayed open until 4:00AM to catch all the drunken college kids on their way home from the bars and parties. I remember the first time I went there and my BFF started screaming "I got two weenies!" because there were indeed, two weenies in her bun. (That sounds kind of naughty!) (I am sure she would chime in here with a more clear version of this story since I was probably sitting at the table with my head down trying not to pass out. However, she is in Australia for her family's Spring Break!)
Anyway, if you don't fall into one of these two categories, you'd probably do what my transient friends from the nether parts of the country do after they eat Skyline. Vomit. Yep, I have at least three friends in this category. They were pregnant at the time, so that may have something to do with it, but nonetheless, they are not Skyline eaters and can't even stand the smell.
I can also attest to the cleansing effect that Skyline has on one's colon, especially when eaten after a night of gluttonous drinking!
When we lived in Kansas City, my mom would bring cans of Skyline to us. You can buy it in the stores here, including places like Sam's Club and Costco. I think Sous Chef would have had detox issues if he had not been able to have Skyline while living away from here. Here he is after eating some homemade Skyline.
Notice he even has some up under his eye! He LOVES this stuff.
Here are pictures from our meal the other night, taken with my new camera, of course. I think the employees thought I was a little odd taking pictures of our food!
