The Best Cincinnati Chili Jan 21, 2010
Eating 5-way chili (or 3- or 4- way) is an absolute must when in Cincinnati, and only the best will do: Camp Washington Chili. Camp Washington has been serving chili to Cincinnatians for seventy years, opening in 1940.

Their menu obviously centers around chili and the popular offerings of 3-way, 4-way or 5-way. They also offer chili-cheese coneys and chili-cheese fries, plus a variety of sandwiches and breakfast options. I went for the 5-way chili: spaghetti topped with chili, beans, raw onions and a massive amount of shredded cheese. I didn't wait long at all for my food. But, I guess it's really just an assembly line. The spaghetti and chili would already be made in batches, so it's basically just waiting on what the customer orders.

I know -- 5-way chili doesn't really sound that appetizing, but it came together really well. The chili wasn't spicy, but had a wonderful flavor and the cheese melted into it, and made a creamy sauce with the chili. The spaghetti provided some substinance for the dish and the beans and onions enhanced the chili. I hadn't intended on eating the whole thing... but I did! It was really good!

One thing to note is Camp Washington's hours. When they open Monday morning, they are open around the clock until they close Saturday night; the restaurant is closed all day Sunday.

Camp Washington Chili is definitely worth checking out for the unique regional dish it serves.
