Finally! Camp Washington Chili

I cannot tell you how many times I have driven by this place and never gotten to go inside! Either we didn't have time or it was Sunday and they were closed - but FINALLY - I got to go to Camp Washington Chili!

It's got a very retro feel - which is definitely fun - and the owner was out clearing tables off the whole time we were there. It's nice to see an owner get involved and get his hands dirty!

We got an array of items between the three of us but definitely had to try some chili - first up were the chili cheese fries ($4). The fries were crispy, the chili was very dark and saucy and lots o' cheese!!!! I have to say - this first taste of the chili definitely makes it stand apart from Skyline & Gold Star. It's similar in texture but a different flavor. Beyond that, I'll leave it to the expert of Cincinnati!

Nicole got a tuna melt (which I can't seem to find on the online menu) - I thought it was pretty adventurous of her to try something like that! Must have been good because she finished it!

Larry got a BLT ($3.60) - he was in the mood for one - he enjoyed his as well. Nothing too much to go wrong here and he said it was a little dry but he had to get it sans mayo (allergies) - so he knew it would be.

Besides his BLT - he got a cheese coney ($1.30) - he just can't resist. It's practically another food group for him. I was allowed a bite and liked it!

For some reason, I wasn't in the mood for coneys - I needed some comfort food and got a grilled ham & cheese ($3.75). It was really good - quite salty - but I like salt. Nice and cheesy gooey!

Why Should You Go? If you haven't been - it's a really cool location - old diner feel. It's big, bright and open. I wouldn't say it's my favorite Chili Diner - but we liked everything and will definitely be back.

  1. While Camp Washington isn't my first choice for chili, it does hold some nostalgia for me.

    When I was little, my Dad brought Camp Washington Chili home often.

    They have great double deckers!
