Chili = ICK. Strange flavors and textures, not good quality. Not "chili" as it should be. In fact we abandoned the chili after a few "tastes". Sandwiches are okay. Apparently a local favorite, but ... not worth a visit if you don't live next to...More

Outstanding. Great food and lots of it, great and friendly service...priceless. The pictures on the wall bring back many memories and the atmosphere goes along with the excellent food. I had the Turkey, bacon and cheese...huge and good.

We love their double decker sandwiches, especially the turkey and bacon. So stuffed it's hard to pick up!

This place is absolutely delicious. They have very good Cincinnati-style chili and gargantuan double decker sandwiches. The food and service is tops. Asked my wife to marry me after lunch here 25 years ago!!

I have loved Cincinnati style chili ever since I ate at the original Price Hill location of Skyline on my very first trip to Ohio. Although the Skyline chain is still going strong, their original restaurant is gone. Not so with Blue Ash Chili, which...More

Hi Ashley, There are no pork products in our chili. We only use fresh, local, lean ground beef. Thanks, Management

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
