We have done many diners across the country Blue - Ash Chili ranks at the very top of our experiences. The service, the food and the setting all are exceptional! This is a regional legend not to be missed!

Being from the Chicago area, its always good to get to Ohio for a fix of 5 Way chili and a Coney dog. Blue Ash is one of the best. 5 way was founded in Cincinnati which is still the mecca with many great 5 way dives. 5 way is a combination of meaty chili, served over a bed of... More

If you can just head to one place when your in the Cincy area for chili or a double decker sandwich look no further. This place never disappoints us no matter how many times we go. Even if you are not a fan of the famous Cincy style chili this place has plenty of other awesome items to try. The... More

Stopped into Blue Ash Chili recently while working in Ohio - I saw the review from Yelp and am a fan of Diner, Dives, & DriveIns, so this was not a real reach. BAC is a small place and a little out of the way -- but we hit it several times. Its quaint, local. and I would say the... More

While visiting Cincinnati I always want my chili fix and I feared I would be disappointed when Blue Ash Chili was suggested over the usual place I go. The restaurant was busy at lunch time but our server offered us samples of the chili before we ordered. It was every bit as good as what I am used to. The... More

We went for the first time for lunch. I had the Mushroom Swiss Burger and it was excellent! My husband had a 3-way and he said it was - a large portion for lunch. We would definitely go back - fast service, clean, great prices, large portions and great food.

This is our family's favorite chilli restaurant. Their chillis are excellent and, surprisingly, their hamburgers are also great~! I would highly recommend this restaurant if you have visitors who want to try Cincinnati Chilli~!

First visit and I was happy to support a local business! Wide variety of options on the menu, not just chili but also delicious sandwiches and other goodies. Looking forward to trying breakfast here next time!

We ate at Blue Ash Chili in Tri-County in Springdale, OH. OMG as usual you will not be disappointed...They serve you food that you will have to reserve your belly to eat later. The portions are wonderful and the food is always great... you will love this place.

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
