I recently hosted a dinner for a few friends at Gold Star in Norwood – near Xavier – and we all got to try the Big Coney which is back for a limited time. It’s is a BIG CONEY and for $6.99 you get a Big Coney, fries and a drink.
This is my friend Dan – he said he normally gets 3 cheese coneys so he thought he could handle 2 Big Coneys – and he was mistaken! These things are massive so be prepared!
The Big Coney is also VERY Cincinnati! Why? The hot dog is specially made by Blue Grass Meats and the buns are from Klosterman Bakery. Put that together with my favorite Cincinnati chili and we’ve got a Cincinnati specialty!
The Big Coney is only available until August 1 – so be sure to head to your local Gold Star Chili and get it before it’s gone. So good!
The other thing I have to tell you about is this Norwood location – it’s really nice – totally new design – and it pays homage to the origins of Gold Star Chili that you might know about. Gold Star Chili was originally named Hamburger Heaven and started in Mt Washington. So the Norwood location is bringing back burgers to the menu – and I have to say – they are REALLY GOOD burgers! This is the traditional cheeseburger and I shared it and a Big Coney with a friend and the burger is really good!
And I have to tell you about their fries – I got these bacon chili cheese fries with a southwest ranch and sour cream – and holy moly these were amazing! And they’re nearly a meal on their own. This is definitely an eat-in meal but everything was so good! The fries are hearty and crispy – the cheese was melty – the chili spicy – the ranch ranchy – the bacon cooked perfectly!!!!
If you think the Gold Star in Norwood is just another Gold Star – think again. Pull over and get these fries!!!! (And that Big Coney – oh now my brain is going – I want a Big Coney with fries and that ranch! Let’s work on that!)
And now – since I love you all so much – I’m giving you the chance to win a $50 gift card for yourself so you can try the Big Coney for yourself! Tell me below if you’ve tried the Big Coney and you’re entered to win! Good Luck!
