    The "Best" Chili in Every State

    Because who doesn't love a list, or at least loves to argue over a list? I have to say though, the Indiana entry, while it sounds good, looks more like breast fed baby 💩🤢🤮than chili.
    The Best Chili in Every State — Eat This Not That

    Although I get to Burbank from time to time I haven't stumbled upon Chili John's. Even still, I'm pretty sure there's something better either north toward Santa Maria or south toward San Diego. Or even just not in Burbank at all and somewhere else in California. But that's just me . . .

      I'm sure there is always something better somewhere else, but Chili John's is pretty good. I've eaten there a couple times. Tough to find it when it is open though. As I remember, and that may have changed, their hours were odd.

      I'll find Chili Johns next time i get to Burbank and I'll try it. i like chili and there is always something better out there so maybe this will turn out to be the best!

    Great timing! Some retired friends and I get together once a month for lunch and it's my turn to pick. I think I'll pick The VA winner 'cause we all like Q and they serve alcohol - win win!

      pkadare that Indiana "chili" shown in the article is from a Cajun restauant near where I live.. I guess they had to show some tasty ettoufe because Hoosier chili is usually tomato soup with hamburger and beans with macaroni and no more than 1/8th of a tsp of McCormick chili powder added to the pot so as not to offend anyone.

      Skyline Chili comes out of Cincy and has several locations in Indiana. I would say that's closer to being the best chili in Indiana. Yat's has really good Cajun food, but I don't see how ettoufe is chili either.

            FireMan You're right about the food at Gilles. The custard is good, but the food not so much.

            I like chili but I have never felt the need to order it in a restaurant. It is just something that has struck me as so personal that it’s really like I only like the chili I make for myself. And some of these pics seem to confirm that call is right. Chili is a wierd one for me.

            Indiana 🤮

            But it also reminds me that ecowper ‘s chili is still on my to-do list.

                  Not a true chili but very good sandwiches.
                  The chili cheese fries are awesome.

                  I am surprised that they aren't mentioned more often.

                    NuWay has also been a favorite of our family since the '70s.
                    The chili there is VERY good.

                    We eat there whenever possible as it was a family business going since 1930.
                    The root beer is very unique.

                      There is no way to rate restaurant chili objectively. Heck, nobody on this site agrees. At least we all argue with laughter. I would imagine that Texas chili recipes are as polarizing as Carolina BBQ sauces. With that said, I was pleasantly surprised to see The Pit Room in Texas rated in this. My son was living in Galveston for a few years and his wife is from Houston. He gave the place high marks a couple of years back. He is in Kissimmee right now but will likely be back in the Houston area next year.

                        I worked about 3 miles from the Pit Room, did lunch there many times. Awesome tacos. Surprisingly they don’t even get a mention in the Tx Mon Top 100. They were a hot spot a few years back, not sure how they missed out this time.

                    The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                    The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                    This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
