Bishop's Famous Chili

Anyone ever been here? Someone recommended it to me and I'm going to give their Chili Mac a shot. Been around since 1925...it's gotta be at least decent

On Cass Avenue in Westmont...and FYI........IT SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...well ok, it doesn't suck, but it's nothing special...it used to be fantastic, so i understand. But it was bought out by a new owner some years ago and the recipe was changed...it's not worth a trip IMO

I used to work on Ogden and would grab Chili there once in a while. Good stuff.

If you're looking for rock star chili in the western burbs though you need to hit Finley's Grill Room on Finley in Downers Grove. They've got a great steak chili with cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips. The chili at Claim Jumpers near Yorktown is not far behind.

I'd like to know if it tastes good prior to crapping it out...

That Finley spot sounds good and everyone has been raving about Claim Jumper's lately.

Another good place for Chili is Taylor Brewing on Butterfield in Lombard. Hearty chili with fresh jalepenos, diced onions, & gobs of oven melted cheddar.

They've got some other great stuff on the menu too. Filet mignon quesadillas that set the bar pretty damn high and some buffalo chicken tenders that make hoots & bdubs look silly.

I dont mean to hijack this thread, but your post got me to thinking about chili. I love Skyline chili out of Cinci, OH. Served over spagetti (sp?) topped with cheese...Yum! Can order it online at www.skylinechili.com. When ever I'm in Cinci on business I always bring back a 4-pack of cans.

My scoring mechanism will be based on a special patented formula:

How long I had to sit.
How much discomfort there was.
How many wipes of TP it took.
If it required flushable wipes or not.
How many.
If it requires a plunger.

"I give it 3 flushes and a plunge"
