First time here and used an amazon local coupon. The owner introduced himself and explained the concept of the extensive menu. We ordered Texas chili over loaded nachos with fresh fixins'. Chicken strips and fries with two dips completed the order. Food was tasty and plentiful. Ordered a quart of chili to take home.Will definitely visit again. Hope the owner... More

Awesome Bacon Bleu burger. Great fries. Great selection of chili! Loved both the Hell Hound and Texas. Did Texas with toppings and a depth charge. I'll be back! Pete is constantly monitoring his business and menu. Love it! You go Pete!

The menu is very confusing (everything has a code name and they actually have a MAP on the wall explaining what they are and how to order). "I want a disarmed warhead in a ballistic ordinance weighted lander".I found this annoying, and the descriptions were all in code as well, so if you want to order the Cinncinati, it says... More

Chili on rice or pasta can't be beat. The hamburger with Hell Hound Chili and cole slaw is my fav. Especially with a chocolate malt. If you want a lower heat level, Fairground Chili is terrific.

This is a simple straight forward shop. Although the focus is on fabulous chili the burgers are beyond excellent. They will beat any franchise and tavern in the area and the price is very friendly. The service is pleasant and expeditious. The burger is handmade and its above and beyond the standard patty but its also not so enormous to... More

We stopped here for lunch today. The menu is a little confusing at first, but once you get it, the concept is kind of cool. Basically, you put different menu items together to make your special combination your way. Today we had the following: ~Flat top chili dog with the hell hound chili...verdict: delicious. Chili had just the right amount... More

I have been going to ChiliBomb since they opened. The chili is very good and comes in many varieties with varying levels of heat. My favorite is the rice and awe with the Texas Peacemaker chili. The service is excellent. The portions are huge. The menu may be confusing for first time visitors, (it isn't just a menu, but more... More

We got two different styles. Large wall menu was a bit confusing but the owner explained it to us loudly and it took a long time. I really did not feel like hearing the whole menu read to me, I had a headache and just wanted to order. Child was good but nothing out of the ordinary. No complaints, just... More

Went twice slow as molasses. They have a nice concept, however the menu is sooo confusing on the big wall. Def. not worth the wait. The chili is blah, no real popping flavors, the people are nice. I think this place needs some business help to become a bit more savvy. I feel bad bc the concept really is neat... More

The place itself is nothing to write home about, but the chili is prepared with some genuine expertise. Personally, I am a big fan of Cincinnati Chili and my wife is a vegetarian. So this place covered both of those options and well. The menu is very compelling, as are the options for presentation. Lots of fun.
