Stopped here with the grandkids on way to Reds ballgame. A local restaurant that's been around for years. Nothing fancy but great food and service. Huge portions. I got the double beef sandwich and so huge I was glad to share with others. Now I mean really huge and at a great price. If one went to a grocery store... More

My husband got the chili and fries and I got the burger with bacon & fried egg with onion rings. All were outstanding. I would recommend stopping here when your in Blue... More

We have been to many Diners, Drive-ins and Dives places but several have raised their prices and become tourist attractions. This is still the cheap local favorite with kids meals under $5. I certainly felt like a kid eating my chilimac. LOVED it!

Turkey and cheese, ham and cheese, ham and ham... Fries, onion rings oh my! They're known for their chili - plain, with cheese, add spaghetti too. In the mood for breakfast; they serve it all day too! From pancakes to eggs and more. Great place for in-and-out lunches, family friendly. Wait depends on the time you go!

Double decker sandwiches are as large as a plate. Order lunch and have plenty to share or take home.

We went to Blue Ash Chili because it is a DDD location. Tried their chili, it was okay, just not to my personal taste. We also ordered their Classic Cheeseburger which was outstanding. Meat had very tasty with plenty of cheese and veggies. The Onions Rings were also very good and crispy. Would definitely go back for the burger. Staff... More

Everything here is amazing. Sandwiches are all great and the chili is crazy good. Used to get them to sell me gallon buckets of chili during winter months.

Blue Ash Chili on Kenwood Road in Cincinnati was the 5th chili parlor on our long list of eateries to visit to compare different Cincinnati style chilis. Blue Ash was a hit. We liked the chili, it was loose but not soupy, the meaty flavor was there, spices were a bit mild for our liking but the over all chili... More

This was our first visit to Cincinnati, and we definitely wanted to try the famous Cincinnati Chili! We researched on-line to find the best of the best, and settled on Blue Ash Chili…and it did not disappoint. We ate there at 5:00pm on a Thursday, so it was not very crowded. The restaurant was bright and cheerful. The waiters and... 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
