Enjoyed a good, filling meal with awesome Cincy chili. Read several recommendations online to choose Blue Ash over Skyline. Good idea! Skyline is good but we loved this place.

I've been eating here for 30 plus years, through different owners, but still good, I love the double deckers, fries, and 5-ways and Cheese coneys, the chili is not as good as Empress and I still prefer Skyline over them, but they ar 3rd on my list for Chili, but the Double Deckers are awesome!

A double decker anyone? - This massive sandwich has amazing flavorful, and a thick layer of stacked bacon that makes your mouth water. The menu is broad enough to have something for everyone. The service is always friendly. The prices reasonable. It's honestly like being in the county seat of a small town.. It's just wonderful.

Great place to eat!!! We showed up 5 minutes before they closed and they were so welcoming. We had the Chili two ways over spaghetti and the grilled cheese special. Loved the grilled cheese....the chili was good but would have been great on a dog instead!

Double decker sandwiches for days. Fast paced joint with friendly service. You should never leave hungry with the variety on the menu

The name does not do this wonderful, full-service diner justice...there are so many creative, delicious selections to choose from! I wanted to try "their" chili, since this was my first visit, and so I tried their "Chili Lasagna"...WOW! Alternating layers of chili (it's milder than other Cincy Chili chains'), cheese, sour cream and flour tortillas...will satisfy your appetite! Friends were... More

Great diner where the waitresses know regulars by their first names. My wife had an excellent chili lasagna dish and the diner/comfort food was reasonably-priced and tasty...I would be a regular if I lived within 100 miles of this place...stop in if you get the chance :)

I stop here for lunch alot. This place is always pretty busy, but i always have good service and great food. I always get slaw dogs, and gravy cheese fries. My buddy likes the 6 way with jalapeños caps on top. I definitely recommend trying this next time instead of normal skyline, or goldstar.

Only get here about twice a year. I have had the chili, burgers and double deckers and all are always very good. I don't think you will be disappointed at anything they serve.

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
