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

Was at the Blue Ash Veterans park to find the bricks with father in-law, my husband and his brother names from their service to our country. We took pictures of their bricks and it was a very nice little park. The flowers on the lamp posts in the city were outstanding and beautiful. Across the street from the veterans park... More

Ate at Blue Ash purposely due to GLT on menu, and it was as good as expected. Goeta instead of bacon was a delicious treat. Certainly in this "chili" town there are those not attempting a different entree--try this and you'll like it along with the fries, and a side of chili too!

Directly across from Holiday Garden Inn in Blue Ash. A well known foodie Ohio treat worth trying. Suggest you eat it while it is hot to temperature and appreciate the aroma. Portions are sizable with alternative menu choices like subs and daily specials ( for those who prefer other food options). Plus the meal costs are within a good price... More

When in Rome, or in this case Cincinnati, do as the Romans do. If you like chili, you have to try this place. Featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, they have a LOT of options (even some non-chili ones if you're not a fan). Small place, but great service and the food was excellent.

Tried this based on Dinners, Drive In's and Dives, which gave it good reviews - NOT. I'm not from Cincinnati but love good chili. Good chili mean, lots on onions, meat, and SPICES, zippy SPICES; not chocolate and cinnamon. Very disappointing.

In the past few years, Blue Ash Chili expanded into the Springdale (Tri-County) area, affording me the opportunity to visit more often. It is located in a strip mall. The motif is diner-style with booth, table and counter dining. Its a friendly place with servers bustling about and the kitchen in full view. The menu highlights their own Cincinnati Chili... 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
