About Uncovering Oklahoma
Uncovering Oklahoma is a travel and interview series produced by Dennis Spielman that uncovers creative people and places throughout Oklahoma.

In preparation for National Chili Day next week, Uncovering Oklahoma visited three restaurants in the Oklahoma City metro that serve bowls of chili as part of their regular menu. For this story, Dennis Spielman traveled to Flint in Downtown Oklahoma City for their Bison Chili, The Red Cup in OKC for their vegetarian chili, and The Diner in Downtown Norman for their Championship Chili. The chili featured from each place is completely different from each other. Not only do all of these venues offer bowls of chili, but they also feature it on other menu items such as burgers.
National Chili Day is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in February, which will be on February 28th for 2019.
