Since 1969 Blue Ash Chili's premium chili has been made with the same family recipe using only top-quality ingredients. It's not too spicy and served Cincy-style: cheese coneys, 3-, 4-, 5- and even 6-ways. Our restaurants have the feel of a small town diner and the dining room and carryout line are always packed with regulars. In 2010, Blue Ash Chili was featured on Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-in, & Dives on the Food Network

Great chili

The chili is very good but I ordered the four way- spaghetti, chili, beans and cheese, but was disappointed that there was so much spaghetti and not enough chili. Had I know, I would have ordered without the spaghetti. The taste of the chili is very similar to Skyline chili. The "creamsicle... read more

We are in from out of town for a youth baseball tournament. We are long time fans of Cincinnati style chili. We stopped in here for dinner. Good atmosphere and local charm. The menu is much more diverse than Skyline and Goldstar. I got the double-decker bacon & chicken salad sandwich with onion rings . Both were awesome!! My wife... More

We used to live in Cincinnati and would enjoy a ham & beef double decker periodically. We have moved, so one of our simple pleasures is to have one for lunch. We definitely recommend sharing! A couple of years ago, the quality of the beef and the thickness of the sandwich had diminished - no longer! Very good beef (ham... More

The best sandwiches in Cincinnati. Incredible amount of meat piled on their double and triple decker sandwiches .....easily enough for lunch and dinner. Chili is also excellent Cinci style and the atmosphere is unique Cinci.

I expected some outstanding chili what I was presented with was no better that Hormel in a can. This restaurant promotes itself from its showing on Diners, Drive ins and Dives. I was disappointed with the quality of the chili. No matter how you try to cover it up ( 3 way, 4 way, 5 way or 6 way) the... More

Recently, my co-workers and I ordered lunch from this restaurant. I had the Patty Melt and it was just okay. The onions are supposed to be carmelized, these seemed barely cooked and they tasted raw. I also ordered hash browns. What I got is what McDonalds serves you. I did not expect that from Blue Ash Chili that every one... More

I travel solo quite often so it allows me to try new places and ideas often. Chili sounded like a nice option today. The chili was a little different than I'm used to but it was worth the trip. I ordered the 5-way and it was tasty. If your looking for something different, stop and give it a shot.

Great Cincinnati Chili. Service is great and the prices are inexpensive. We visit Blue Ash regularly for business and this place is ALWAYS on our agenda for a 5 way and a cold beer or two. Highly recommend it.
