Wow, like we really need to stop by this famous place!! Lol

Some food and going home. Nice relaxing night.

The ONLY way to end a perfect night out

The after-dinner candy bowl is almost as good as the dinner itself. Look at all those Andes mints!

First time customer today. NOT IMPRESSED, how can you even call that meat? I will not ever be back here!

Real Chili is the "real deal"! It's not about the wet spaghetti noodles that base the bowl, nor the beans and meat chili that sauces the pasta. nor the cheese (or extra cheese) that combines to make this dish a pseudo "mac and chili-cheese" - "oh god . add double onions and pour hot pepper vinegar sauce all over it to cut this star, chy- Frankenstein (wtf) chili dish extraordinaire". It's the ab…undance of gluten n white flour small oyster-chowder crackers that are readily available to continuously add to your bowl of "chili." This is what makes "Real Chili" - a really ridiculous experience and a college kid staple food. In fact I submit: "with the proper application of crackers. your bowl of chili can be virtually endless!" Aside from a star, ch bomb, a drunken "munchie" staple food (that sustained sooo many college kids at Marquette University over decades) . Real Chili in my mind has always provided a community service and fostered a lasting tradition of late night "cracker throwing wars" and hangover helpers that makes this place an institution! God bless 'Real Chili'. Еще

Besides waiting in line with 2 people in front of me for 15minutes It honestly felt like I was eating straight salt. Pretty sure my blood pressure skyrocketed after a bite I had to really force it down. Don't get the hype but if you're a big of salt by all means have at it.

Amazing Chili that I Miss

How can you not love this place? Though crowded on prime drinking nights, there is a great camaraderie as you wait around the horseshoe of a counter waiting for a couple of spots to open up, staring out the windows that have steamed up from the pots steaming warm and wet in the center of the room. The chili is Cincy style--which is not to be found in New York City, that's for sure. I would get it with the well cooked spaghetti as a base, add some beans and then the chili on top. That's where the spice is. But you can get it with only the spaghetti or just the beans. On the counter is the oil---replete with hot chiles sitting inside to give it that extra kick. Add some sour cream and raw onions, mix in the oyster crackers and it's several layers of yum.r The other reviewer seems to be comparing this to a more traditional Texas style if chili---it most certainly is not that, though I love that too. This is midwestern style and as an example of that stands alone. Well worth a visit, even if you might be a 1200 or so miles away.r r r Chris O'Neil
