CINCINNATI (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER) - If you’re keeping score at home of who likes Skyline Chili and who doesn’t ...
Count Heisman Trophy winner, LSU star quarterback and national champion Joe Burrow - the former Athens High School standout many expect the Cincinnati Bengals to select with the top overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft - among celebrities and sports figures who don't care for it.
According to our media partners at the Cincinnati Enquirer, Burrow talked about it recently during an interview with the Pardon My Take podcast on Barstool Sports:
"Oh, God. I hate it. Cincinnati's gonna hate me - I hate that stuff," Burrow said. "It's not real chili. It's just sauce. I mean, they've hated me for a while because I've had these takes since like I first got to Ohio State. And they're like, 'What do you mean? You're from Ohio!' and I'm like, 'Doesn't matter. I hate it.'"
And some have brought up a tweet from Burrow from nearly two years ago in which he expressed his true feelings about Skyline:
Former Bengals defensive back George Iloka, who shared Burrow's old tweet, has insisted on many occasions that he doesn't understand why Cincinnati-style chili is so popular in the Queen City.
Skyline Chili mentioned Burrow in a Tweet, turning the other cheek and ignoring his dislike of Cincinnati-style chili.
