I had been to another Bishop's location 25+ years ago. The chili was as good as I remembered. If you want an outstanding bowl of chili, this is the place to go. No frills. No credit cards. Just really good food.

This chili IS different. It has been around in the Chicago area since the 1920's, and it is made without any tomato, paste, sauce, or any tomatoey thing...so don't compare it to a typical tomato based recipe or you will be in for a shock....More

Stopped in on a Tuesday, I had been wanting to try their chili for some time. It was OK, but I guess I expected more "chili" flavor. Price was good, but the bowl was small. $2 draft beer on Tuesday was a good deal. Don't...More

I have been eating Bishop's chili for 50 years. It doesn't get any better. There's nothing like a couple bowls of chili and a few beers.
