It's been a while since I had my last chili fix here. It's still the same... spicy hot and tasty. And, that's what's kept the place in business for more than five decades. Other restaurants claim to know chili. But, Chili John's means it. Sure, there's a little greasy film with your serving. So what...you don't come here to protect your arteries. Nothing fancy here...just a u-shaped counter. And friendly, fast service. My foodie friend and I both sampled the vegetarian chili...forget it. It ain't chili without the beef.

Chili John's has been at the same location since I was in junior high school. That was over 55 years ago. Today, I had a bowl of "medium with" (chili and beans) and a drink. I added some chopped onions and a few oyster crackers. Just as I did in high school. It tasted the same - great! No tables, just a horse shoe counter. Cool place, excellent food.

Good atmosphere and a fun take on the Cincy chili 5-way thing with saucy chili ladled over limp spaghetti. Great atmosphere.
