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

Everyone has a different opinion about what constitutes great “Cincinnati Chili” which is unlike traditional thick, beef & bean Texas style chili. It is thinner and sweet with a hint of cinnamon and chocolate. I think you have to cultivate a taste for it and because one does not like it, does not mean it is bad. Simply a matter... More

Our first visit the place was crowded and we ordered lasagna which has chili in it and comes with a piece of garlic toast, it had a good flavor but I thought was overpriced for the amount you get. We also ordered the open face roast beef with mashed potatoes and cole slaw, the beef was very tender and I... More

I typically don't give a one star, but this is a resturant and I got their speciality a number 3 and the chili if you can call it that was so bad, that I couldn't finish it all. It has been in business for a very long time and maybe the locals haven't any other kind of chili, I wouldn't... More

I have eaten the other two chains' chili many times. For some reason I missed this place during my stays in the area. I tried it because it was rated #1 in Blue Ash. How can you turn that down? Its easy to find and has enough parking to meet their needs. Its a bit crowded at the entry as... More
