I've been curious about Chili John's for the longest time and am so glad I finally checked it out. The staff is super friendly and greeted us with a taste test of their three signature chilis. All were delicious but my favorite was the chicken chili and my husband's was the mild beef. We will be back and next time we'll try the homemade pie too.


Seriously though, if you haven't been to Burbank's oldest establishment, and best chili around, then what are you waiting for!?

Chili John's has a great old school diner atmosphere, though it is first come first serve, so be prepared to wait if you come with a large group.

Good eats / hot seats

went here w/ my work-lunch partner-in-crime a few weeks ago & thought it was awesome. The staff had a cheery attitude, even in the saunaesque conditions in there & they really do serve up a mean bowl of chili.
We wrote a giant review, complete w/ a bunch of pics, on our totally amateur lets-kill-some-time-at-work blog. Check it out here if you're so inclined: www./burbankbites.blogspot. com/

Spicy and Gooooood

The oldest restaurant in Burbank, this U-shaped trove of chili pleasure is quite a find. When I worked in Burbank I was there every Tuesday. If you like chili and you haven't experienced it yet, go for it.

It is the best chili in L.A.!

It is sensational! I have a friend from Idaho who always makes a visit to have their chili when he is in the area. He even orders chili makings via express mail so he can enjoy it between visits. It is true the price is a bit steep but it is so good that it is worth the price. Besides chili I always get one of their special hot dogs, with the seasoning added to the meat. Don't forget dessert--the pies are very tasty.

Chili Johns Learning Experience

DO......NOT............DO IT! There is a perfectly good reason for the name JOHN in the title.....because that is either where this concoction came out of or where you will be spending the remainder of your afternoon all while being so P.O.'d at yourself for the amount of money spent on this nonsense.We got lunch for 4 people.....that's 4 bowls of chili and an ungodly amount of oysters crackers and......IT WAS $48.00 BUCKS!!!!! FOURTY EIGHT!!!

Unbelievable......never.....ever. ever. ever .ever again.

My favorite chili place

Even though Chili John's is closed during the summer, I have been going here for almost 20 years. Gene is a hoot! Love the small diner atmosphere and the chili is by far the best I've ever had! That's why I keep coming back. And as far as this place staying in business, some lunchtimes I've seen 10 to 15 people waiting for a seat at the counter! And if you really want to taste their chile during the summer time, Gene will set you up just call ahead and he will have the fixings ready for you.

Best chili ever

I love Chili John's... The best chili in the valley. They are closed most of the time in the summer as it is a family run business who closes in the summer time. I have been to may different chili places and nothing is quite the same..... Love the atmosphere and food and it is not over priced. A great place to eat at....

The best chili in SOCAL

From a first timer, former Sooner and much time in Texas, this is the real deal. the staff was charming and welcomed the ""newcomer"". The chili is awessome. Unfortunately no room or time for pie! Definitely next time.
