Camp Washington Chili

Camp Washington Chili is a Cincinnati chili parlor founded in 1940 by Steve Andon and Fred Zannbus in the neighborhood of Camp Washington, near downtown Cincinnati, in southwestern Ohio. A well known Cincinnati landmark, [Sheridan, Margaret. (January 4, 1985) Chicago Tribune "Cincinnati-style chili parlor - A sweet success." Section: Friday; Page 16.] the parlor is located at 3005 Colerain Avenue and the current owner is John Johnson. The restaurant left its old location and moved to a site a few lots away in 2000, after being told to vacate by the city in order to widen Hopple Street. [Perry, Kimball. (February 22, 1993) The Cincinnati Post "Camp Washington Chili going, but bigger one will replace it." Section: Living; Page 1B.] Their new location is modeled after a 1950s-style diner. The restaurant is open 24 hours a day every day but Sunday. The chili served by the restaurant has won an "American Regional Classic" James Beard Foundation Award, and its reputation attracts many locals and visitors. CBS News set out in 1985 to find "the best chili in the nation" and declared Camp Washington Chili as the winner.
