I'm sure the debate will rage on...

    We've been to Camp Washington and it's great. It's Cinci chili though so if you're not familiar it's gonna be a shocker.

    I'm interested in Ben's Chili Bowl as we skirt DC sometimes.

      No way, dude. Milwaukee's Real Chili is missing from this list.

        Absolutely, stricken. We need to take our roadfood friends there when they visit our area!

          No. 3, Sadly, Chili my Soul has been closed for over a year.
           
          It was a great concept and two new places have opened in the Los Angeles area, both serving several varieties of chili.
           
          I reviewed Chili My Soul here beginning with post number 19:

            Which location is better?
             
            I see that Real Chili was started by a former employee of Chili John's in Green Bay.  I'll have to check it out the next time I'm up that way.

              Annie--absolutely! I hate the parking down there, but the food is worth it. I sound like an old lady, but sometimes I miss being a bus person.
               
              Brad--downtown Milwaukee. It's near Elsa's & Taylor's on Cathedral Square (Jackson & Wells). When I've been in the 'Bay, I've eaten exclusively at relatives houses except for that one time @ Titletown something or other when the Walk for PKD was in Green Bay. And this little hole in the wall place for breakfast on the day of my Nana's funeral in 1993. Great food, can't remember the name. It was a yellow house if that helps.

                That stinks!!! Why'd they include it?

                  Cousin Johnny and I hit both Real Chili and Chili John's during our Wisconsin vacation last Spring.  Both are excellent.  Here is a bowl of chili from each:

                      Someone from Bon Appetit writing about Chili is like Guy Fieri writing about Michelin 5 Star Restaurants!
