Mile-High Sandwiches and The BEST Cincinnati Chili!!!

Have a cup of Blue Ash Chili! It's the BEST of Cincinnati Chili. Add a sandwich like the Beef and Egg Salad combo and don't get a hernia trying to pick it up. Split it with a friend! Featured on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," this place is the real deal for home made American fare. The Blue Boy... read more

This site is one that has been visited by Diners, Drive-ins and Dives last year (2014). The visit then was great, but my visit last week was just as spectacular! Service was quick and food just as fast. Blue Ash serves a bowl of chili that has five different ways to enjoy it! However, I had the version called "Guy's... More

Grew up close to Blue Ash Chili - it was a special treat when Daddy would bring home Blue Ash Chili sandwiches. A friend of ours goes up to Cincy / Blue Ash for business and we suggested he go there. He was raving about it ... seriously raving. LOVED it all. Actually liked the chili better than Skyline or... More

Blue Ash Chili is the best Cinci chili in Ohio. The taste, the portions and all the variety is fantastic. You don't want to miss it if you are anywhere around Blue Ash or Mason Ohio

On a road trip that took us through Cincinnati, we made a stop at Blue Ash Chili. YUM!! Fun atmosphere and decor. Great lunch options (and awesome milkshakes). Our lunch crew enjoyed the Chili 5 ways, the Lizard (a dill pickle on a bun covered in chili and fixings--DIVINE!!), and Chili cheese jalapeno burger. Worth the drive!

We are fans of places that have been well documented. This place had found acclaim nationally through the TV show Diner's Drive Inns and Dives. That is all it took to get it on our itinerary on a recent trip to Cincinnati. We could tell it is enormously popular. The large restaurant had all of its seats filled and people... More

Blue Ash Chili has been famous for years for both it's great Cincinnati-style chili and for the biggest, baddest, most luscious sandwiches you ever bit into...double deckers that are so big they're almost impossible to finish in one seating, and juicy, delicious burgers! Featured on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives, and rightly so. A must stop if you are in... More

This is a great place for local food. The double decker's are great. I like the sandwiches there and they are awesome. The inside is a typical diner in appearance. The issue is the place has become too popular, so I would recommend avoiding peak times. The layout from the parking lot to inside is not designed for crowds. If... More
