For NFL tailgates, I often make a food specialty of the opponent. I do not like CIN chili, so when they came I made goetta and served it with fried eggs. It was pretty good. It's not something I'd make regularly, but I enjoyed it as did the tailgate gang.

If the goetta you had was just "pretty good" and not mindblowing, I'd venture to guess it wasn't cooked *perfectly*.

(not trying to be a snob about cooking, I fail at cooking it "correctly" most of the time, but when you've had it done right, you'll know IMO)

Yeah, maybe it's not a chain. Maybe the list only included places with Wikipedia pages, which would generally be chains.

All right, if I ever find myself in Cincinnati, I'm totally trying it again. The guy that cooked mine is from Colorado so he may not have been an expert.

I didn't know what goetta was before Googling, and from the sounds of it, I will continue to never have tried it.

It sounds like the meatloaf of breakfast.

I've never heard of it before this thread either and while i never lived in Cincinnati, both my parents grew up there and I still have lots of family there so my mind if a little blown right now.
