Reviewed September 13, 2011

This was simply the best chili I have ever had and in addition to excellent chili and chips, it's hard to beat the hospitality of Pete and his sister Gail...

“Fabulous food. Friendly service. Nostalgic setting. Gorgeous views.”
Reviewed September 2, 2011

Run by the friendliest family to make you feel right at home. Takes you back to your childhood, when things were less pretentious. Located in a wonderful historic area. So much to do and see, and terrific chili in a variety of flavors. A MUST stop on your upstate visit.

“a chilli lovers DREAM. Pete is a chow wagon master and a FUN host.”
Reviewed August 23, 2011

We had such a great time at the Tepee. Owned and managed by a family that makes you feel so welcomed. We fell in love with the place. The Tepee gift shop has been a landmark on historic Route 20 since 1950 and the Chow Wagon's chilli makes you feel like the Cowgirl you always wanted to be. Bring your friends, family and kids here. They will all thank you. And don't forget to bring the dog; Tepee Pete has a Dirty Dog just for Fido on the menu

“I. Love. This. Place.”
Reviewed August 8, 2011

Tepee's Chow Wagon is, without a doubt, an absolutely stellar place to grab a bite to eat. The food is restaurant quality and cooked passionately and expertly. Everything I have ever had (chili, hamburger, fries, garlic chips, quesadilla , etc.) was simply delicious. I cannot recommend this place enough. It is just amazing. I specifically recommend the supreme quesadilla, which is crammed full of the yummiest meats and veggies and always served with a unique salsa of the day. (Last time the salsa of the day was peach. Amazing.)

“Awesome!”
Reviewed July 30, 2011

Tepee Pete's chow wagon is far more than it first seems. The chili is some of the best chili I have ever had, my favorite was the beer chili ! The elk and buffalo burgers were nothing short of amazing, done perfectly , letting the meat speak for itself. He really puts alot of effort and passion into his food and it shows. Oh and hes a real nice guy too. Thanks for the full stomach Pete !! JP
