BEST CHILLI
Dew Chilli


Since new ownership took over, things have sure been changing with Dew Chilli.  While the original location on Fifth Street has closed, Dew Chilli opened up two new Pub & Grills with expanded menus. Now you can get Dew’s delicious chilli even more ways. The classic chilli is now available with or without beans. It’s a nice change for those who aren’t fans of beans in their chilli. As always, it can still be spiced up to medium, hot or hot damn Dew Chilli. New to Dew Chilli, however, is the Dew Cincinnati Style Chilli. It’s a Greek recipe of fine ground beef with a tomato base, sweeter spices and just a touch of heat. Many fans order a quart of chilli to take home in case they didn’t get their fill while dining in or to share with friends.  

The Pub & Grill menus offered at the North Grand location and the South Dirksen location also have traditional pub offerings together with many items that now sport a creative Dew Chilli twist. The almost endless options include the “Deways” – spaghetti, mac and cheese, green beans or baked potatoes topped with a choice of chilli meat, beans, cheese and so on. Another creative offering that tempts diners is the BuRita Dew Chilli Salad (lettuce, chilli beans, onions, tomatoes, chilli meat, taco sauce, cheese, sour cream and crushed corn chips).  Who says chilli is just for lunch or dinner? The North Grand location recently started serving up breakfast.  You can get chilli meat in your omelet or a breakfast pony with chilli.  They also have traditional breakfast offerings.  With so many ways to enjoy chilli, you can’t go wrong no matter what you choose.
