Neighborhood Eats: Vienna Inn

Like any neighborhood tavern worth its salt, this saloon has worn wooden booths and a slightly sticky floor, but the food is as good as the suds. The house specialty—meaty, beer-spiked chili—can be had on a juicy hot dog, as chili-mac (over a bowl of spaghetti), or on its own. Even a five-bean vegetarian version sings, especially with a dash of hot sauce.
