Good coney! We were comparing it to Skyline, and I think it was much better quality. I didn't love the atmosphere. Servers were nice but it seemed a little disorganized.

I grew up on double-decker sandwiches here in Cincinnati, especially back in the 70's and 80's. Over time most of those beloved late night spots have closed, but Blue Ash Chili endures and thank goodness for that. I believe that there are actually three locations now for Blue Ash Chili, but the original location on Kenwood Road in Blue Ash... More

Went here on a Saturday afternoon with my boyfriend who loves their cheeseburger. Big boy burger? I got a BLT. My problem wasn't with the sandwiches, but you get nothing with them. Really BAC, not even some stale chips? Btw... our sandwiches were delish!!

We ate lunch here, the service was fast and friendly. We ordered a cheese coney and the tuna salad sandwich with fries. Everything was delicious.

With an abundant variety on the menu, everyone gets what they want at Blue Ash Chili. Cincinnati chili, double-deckers, soups, burgers, salads, breakfast dishes, etc. Always good service and good food - good prices!

I was truly appalled at the quality of service provided by Trent. I guess he really did not want to be bothered. He took the order and never appeared again. In all of my years, I have never eaten chili with a fork, couldn't get anyone's attention to get a spoon. I thought it would be an opportunity to check... More

Blue Ash Chili is conveniently located in downtown Blue Ash, Ohio, but you might miss it. It is a good place to go when you don;t want to dress-up. A great place for Cincinnati chili, a burger, double-decker sandwiches and much more. It is no-frills and friendly service. The double-deckers have lots of options and lots of meat. Try one... More

Blue Ash Chili in Tri-County is a fantastic place to eat when your hunger is big and your budget is small. A small Chef Salad is enough for 2 meals. Go for the fries-you won't regret it ! The staff is friendly and efficient.

I've been going there for over 30 years. It's a standby comfort kind of place. They have expanded the menu a good bit and expanded locations as well. It's still kitschy and well done overall, good service, good food, enormous sandwiches, good beer. If you don't know Cincy chili, try this place and order a 4 way onion and slather... More

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
