Lynna’s Grill

This weeks chili stop took down to Latonia to visit Lynna’s Grill.  Possibly our final stop in Kentucky, Lynna’s Grill is located on Winston near Decourcy in downtown Latonia.  The small restaurant consists of booths along the outside wall with tables in the center.  The large menu is chock full of breakfast, sandwiches, and chili.  […]

Main Street Diner

Just down the street from the courthouse sits a small diner on the corner of 9th & Main, appropriately named the Main Street Diner.  The large sign out front says “B/G Restaurant,” a relic from the diner’s 80+ year history in that spot.  Inside is easily the longest lunch counter we’ve come across on the […]

Eastside Chili

Easily the newest chili purveyor in town, Eastside Chili has been open for about a month in Withamsville on Beechmont Ave. Located in a strip mall just east of 275, Eastside chili looks to help rectify the dearth of independent chili parlors on the east side of town. As you would expect with a brand […]

Price Hill Chili

We’ve deliberately saved some of the more well-known chili parlors around town for visits near the end of our tour.  As we’re winding down with the last dozen or so stops, it was time to start mixing some of those parlors.  So with that in mind, we finally headed out Glenway to stop at the […]

P&S Restaurant

The P&S Restaurant is located in a small strip mall on Springdale Rd. just off of Colerain Avenue near the Northgate Mall.  In business since 1979, P&S features chili prominently on the front page of their menu.  Notably, they offer six (sour cream) and seven (sour cream and jalapenos) ways though amazingly none of the […]

Lucy’s Deli

Lucy’s Deli sits on Reading Rd. in the heart of downtown Reading.  Parking is convenient with a small lot located right next to Lucy’s.  The interior is comprised of two rows of booths with several rows of tables and chairs in the middle, decorated like an arts + crafts store exploded within.  Be sure to […]

Cretan’s Grill

Cretan’s Grill, or Cretan’s Chili Restaurant as the sign outside says, is located on Vine St. in the heart of Carthage.  The interior is done up in classic wood paneling, linoleum floors, and a chromed-out lunch counter along the wall.  Wooden booths line the opposite wall with a row of tables and chairs in between.  […]

Patrick’s Sports Bar & Grill

Today we made another trek down Glenway to another Westside chili parlor, Crookshank Chili.  We weren’t certain it was still open, so we called ahead.  “Crookshank,” answered the voice at the other end of the phone call.  We verified they were open for lunch and headed out.  After a couple of passes down Crookshank, we […]

Blue Jay Restaurant

Just a few doors down from Park Chili on Hamilton Ave. in Northside sits an unassuming diner tucked right next door to Cincinnati’s favorite record store, Shake-It Records.  7 members of the chili team found their way into the Blue Jay Restaurant for a chili tasting extravaganza.  The interior of the Blue Jay is straight […]

Sam’s Chili

Today we made yet another trip out Glenway to sample some chili.  Sam’s Chili is a tiny parlor located along Glenway in Price Hill.  The interior consists of a small counter with four booths on the opposite wall.  The menu includes items such as pizza, burgers, fried chicken, fish…you could eat there daily and never […]
