Every prince knows that the most effective way to wake up a sleeping beauty is not with a boring kiss but with a single potent drop of fiery chili. Awaken tired taste buds in royal fashion with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of chili, burgers, and hot dogs from Empress Chili on Vine Street.

Founded as a no-frills pretheater pit stop amid the Art Deco opulence of 1922, Empress Chili continues to steal spotlights with its saucy cauldrons of slow-simmered meats and spices. Crafted using the original 89-year-old recipe, chili arrives cradled in a bowl ($4.29), slathered atop a coney dog ($1.49), or spread across a cheesy pizza ($3.99). Pair sauce with pasta in a traditional two-way ($4.49–$5.59), top sauce with shredded cheese in a three-way ($4.99–$6.99), or marvel at the establishment’s double-decker sandwiches ($5.39-$5.99) before hopping on a train for a banjo duet with a jovial amphibian. Empress Chili schedules morning eats on the late shift with all-day breakfasts, and its broiler–captured flames dance beneath broiled burgers ($3.49–$3.99) and Italian sausage ($3.49).

New to Cincy and like better than skyline. You should promote that Empress is the original!
