Dixie Chili was founded in Newport in 1929. The chili parlor currently has three locations. One of Dixie Chili's more interesting menu items is the "Alligator," which is made with a dill spear, wiener, mustard, mayo and cheese on a coney bun. You can add chili for $.60.

Camp Washington Chili

Camp Washington Chili has been a mainstay in the neighborhood it was named after since 1940. Frequent visitors to the chili parlor located at 3005 Colerain Ave. are fondly referred to as "chili heads."

Price Hill Chili

Price Hill Chili

Price Hill Chili has been a neighborhood institution since 1962. Presidential and state political candidates regularly stop for a three-way or cheese coney at the chili parlor located at 4920 Glenway Ave. when they visit the Queen City while on the campaign trail.

Blue Ash Chili

Blue Ash Chili

Blue Ash Chili is a relative newcomer to the Cincinnati-style chili scene. The first Blue Ash Chili parlor opened in 1969. Since then, the parlor has expanded to three locations and made a name for itself with the "No Freakin' Way!" chili challenge. Few have managed to eat all of this eight-pound chili-spaghetti behemoth made with 2.5 pounds of spaghetti, 2.5 pounds of chili, two pounds of cheese and a pound of jalapeno caps in under an hour.

Empress Chili

Empress Chili

Empress Chili is where it all started. In 1922, brothers Tom and John Kiradjieff, Macedonian immigrants, concocted the seasoned meat sauce we now call Cincinnati chili. They served it over spaghetti and hotdogs to patrons and performers from a small Downtown shop next to the Empress Theatre. There are two Empress Chili parlors still in operation. One is in Alexandria, Kentucky and the other at 3670 Werk Road in Green Township.

Pleasant Ridge Chili

Pleasant Ridge Chili

You truly do step back in time whenever you enter Pleasant Ridge Chili, located at 6032 Montgomery Road in Pleasant Ridge. The self-described "old-timey diner" stays open late and serves classic Cincinnati-style chili dishes, along with other classic comfort foods and its famous chili cheese fries. This parlor first opened its doors in 1964. (The parlor's menu says the joint is cash only.)

Gourmet Chili

Gourmet Chili

Gourmet Chili is representative of so many independent parlors that have populated Greater Cincinnati neighborhoods over the years. The parlor was opened by a family of Greek immigrants in the 1960s. It's served up Cincinnati-style chili, gyros and other foods you'd expect from a diner ever since. Gourmet Chili, located 843 Monmouth St. in Newport, is open seven-days-a-week.
