Best chili in town

Dixie chili is very good, do t get the attention of other big chain resturants in.

We tried this one the same day as Camp Washington and this one is quite a bit better. Once again this location is NOT what we have come to expect when we eat Cincy style chili. The chili here cannot be eaten alone. It simply has way too much cinnimon and brown sugar. It was literally gritty on your teeth.... More

If you like chili, you'll like Dixie. We think it's superior in every way to the 800 pound gorilla of chili - Skyline Chili. The decor is refreshingly retro, the staff is as friendly as can be and the 5-way is the best.

NOT your "cookiecutter" trash; THIS is REAL. A neighbor business says this is "Cincinnati-style Chili". We had no idea there WAS such, and we were hesitant- - in Virginia, chili often means terribly overpeppered inedibles. What Virginians often accept as chili HURTS. Dixie Chili has DELICIOUS chili, and it digests well and does NOT hurt. It's very good.. Even affordable.... More

Did not catch her name but large, grey and mean looking. Kinda like a PE teacher. Regardless Ill go back and hope the... More

I discovered Dixie Chili only a few years ago when I first visited KY with my boyfriend. Having been born and raised there, he introduced me to one of his favorite meals: Cincinnati chili. We tried Dixie, Skyline and Gold Star (yes, all within the same week) and he didn't tell me which he thought was the best but let... More

Eating Dixie chili as a child was THE big treat and now when stopping in greater Cincinnati it has become the same great treat. The Coneys were as ordered and very satisfying. The menu has expanded but I remain a traditionalist.
