Very much what my family wanted, excellent chili. We had it Guys way and it was awesome. Clean friendly and good prices. Give it a try and the lasagna chili was my favorite.

Get anything here and you will be pleased with your selection. Double-Deckers are the way to go if you ask me!

Blue Ash Chili is great place to get double decker sandwiches.The sandwiches are big with plenty of meat. I usually get take out so sometimes I get enough meat on my sandwich that I can make a 2nd sandwich for later @ home.

Here is why you should put Blue Ash Chili on your Must Try list, it is so much more than Chili. I've been there 3 times in 3 weeks and not had Chili yet! Yesterday, I had breakfast at 12:30. An oversized Veggie Omelet with...More

Chili = ICK. Strange flavors and textures, not good quality. Not "chili" as it should be. In fact we abandoned the chili after a few "tastes". Sandwiches are okay. Apparently a local favorite, but ... not worth a visit if you don't live next to...More

Hi Ashley, There are no pork products in our chili. We only use fresh, local, lean ground beef. Thanks, Management

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
