Went to Camp Washington based upon a Chicago Tribune review--we weren't disappointed. My wife and I had the 5-way chili and experienced chili in a whole new way. Take the bib they offer! We'll definitely go out of our way to stop here when traveling...More

I got there about 2:00 pm so there was plenty of seating. The waitress was very nice. I got the 4 way bean chili. Perfect amounts of everything. Nothing overpowered anything else.

We specifically sought this place out after seeing it featured on The Food Network. First off, be forewarned it is not in the nicest of areas. We got there and there were only a handful of tables taken. Our waitress came by, took our order...More

Best Cincinnati-style chili. Love their 5-way and coneys. Always my #1 choice for chili when visiting old home grounds. The staff here are always friendly. Sometimes it feels longer to get food (because you are anticipating your meal) but you can listen to awesome music,...More

I was all excited about stopping at this place because we had seen it on the travel Channel and it had said that it was one of the best places to eat chili in Cincinnati. Not only was the chili disgusting so were the bathrooms....More

Stopped here early (6:15) on a Saturday morning. There were a couple of people sitting in the dining area and a couple more getting carryout, so pretty empty. Per the sign, seated ourselves in a booth and waited for a server to take our order...More

I loved the menu. Chili everyway that you could imagine and it was very good. They have different levels of heat for different tastes. Everyone was very friendly and there are several choices on the menu if chili isn't your dish of choice.

I recently ate at the Camp Washington Chili restaurant. It was a step back in time for me. I had chili, with beans, onions and spaghetti. I found it to be pretty tasty. Our service was outstanding. If they offer you a bib, take it.
