Another chili joint that just doesn't do much to establish itself from the rest of the pack. Under our new "no lunch items shall be shared" doctrine, we each ordered up a crock of chili and a pita roll up.

The crock arrived promptly with some crackers on the side. I'm sad to report fresh onions and cheese aren't even offered as an option, this is a chili where their availability really would have made a difference. I say this because the flavor of the chili is somewhat lacking. There is absolutely no heat period present, I don't think the chef was even willing to throw some pepper in there. When presented with a bowl of blandness, some fresh onions can go a long way to at least making things a little more exciting. What Klancy's chili did have going for it was an odd smoothness. The liquid texture was like a milk and corn starch consistency. It was kinda nice and enjoyable I do have to say.

Aside from that, there was a good selection of veggies present, some chopped onions, celery and tomatoes. A good enough amount of beans and burger accounted for. Still, I was just bummed with the lack of spice and flavor. Bonus points for the originality with the smooth texture, subtract some for the overall taste.

My wife claims that Klancy's of Milford has the best potato soup around. If that's true, it should stand to reason that they make the best chili around as well. That was the thought process anyway. I called to see if they offered homemade chili and they said they did. I used to omit the 'homemade' part but got burned with the coney sauce too many times.

After being seated at a table that was practically connected to the people next to us, Matt and I each ordered the Crock of Chili and a roll up club sandwich. Notice that we didn't split our lunch. No man-date here! Being seated so close to other people was bad enough but for some reason they started talking about tiny mites or creatures on your body that ate dead skin. Thanks.

The chili was good but didn't really stand out from the pack. It didn't have any heat whatsoever. It really would have helped to have some cheese and onion and bottle of Tabasco handy. We both noticed that the chili had a unique texture to it. I don't know if creamy is the right word. It had the consistency of gravy but looked like chili. I wish restaurants didn't feel they didn't need to make Plane Jane chili to appease the masses. Isn't that what tomato soup is for?

I would have it again if I was there but certainly wouldn't drive out of my way to grab a crock.
