The chili is really good Cincinnati style chili. The portions are a great size and the order of Fries was enough for two people easily. The waitresses that served us made us fell right at home. We stopped in around 4 PM and the place...More

Camp Washington Chili was very good but I did not think it was a better taste than either Gold Star or Skyline. In fact it was very close to the Gold Star taste. Very good taste but would not drive 45 min again to go...More
