“best chili parlor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

My Cincinnati friends told me this was the best Cincinnati Parlor and they did not steer me wrong. I bought 1 gallon to bring home. They were wonderful. They packed it in my cooler with plenty of ice.
... and now I have to say "best chili parlor" ever because the chili is in a class by itself.

“Cincinnati Chili at its Best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Camp Washington is away from downtown. Unlike a lot of the other chili places, like Skyline, Camp Washington only has one location. There is no worry about getting spread too thin (either the restaurant or the customers). The chili is super good. If you want to try Cincinnati chili, this is the spot.

“Chili is no better than a franchise”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Had the plain chili - was expecting something great after reading about their accolades in local reviews. Chili was watery with tiny bits of meat, was more of a chili flavored sauce than real chili, in fact is was nearly identical to the Skyline franchise stuff. Service was good and atmosphere was casual and ok. Other items on menu not tried.

“Best Chili”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

This is a must to anyone that comes to Cincinnati!!! It is the best chili ANYWHERE! If you are just passing through Cincinnati and are on I75, get off at the Hopple St. Exit for some good food! They have fries, double decker's, and pies a long with some fantastic chili!
