The Chili Company
Speaking of coming full circle, the Chili Company where I used to eat cheese fries during high school appears to have re-opened! It's the one in White Oak, and they've been doing work on it for several months now. (I think it closed after a fire in 1997 and never reopened till now). There's no formal sign up (and the old Chili Company sign is not lit up), but I assume it's still serving the same old, same old. It sits at the intersection of Cheviot and Blue Rock roads, just across the street from the Knotty Pine. (The biker bar, not the Knotty Pine on the Bayou serving tasty N'awlins food in Cold Spring, Kentucky!) I'm guessing it's similar to the Chili Company in Oakley (3158 Madison Road; 513-871-4144). I should swing by and check it out, though I'm admittedly NOT a fan of Cincinnati chili (unless my mom makes it!) Anyone been by to check it out?
