About

The special chorizo eggrolls are just one of many unique items on the menu at Chili U. The food menu alone is reason is enough to pay homage to this restaurant, but the drink list is quite spectacular as well. Come here early to enjoy drinks after work with friends or colleagues, and stay to have a hearty meal cooked to order.

If you want something different, just order the poutine. This Chili U original contains waffle fries, gravy and melted white cheddar cheese curds. Beyond that, Chili U does great seafood platters, including the ever-popular fried shrimp and peppercorn tuna.

First time here and we loved everything about this bar/restaurant! I loved the bar! Everything was clean and beautiful. We came to meet friends for the Cubs game and for dinner. We all had Chili and it was AMAZING- SO delicious! Loved the concept. WE will definitely be back! If you're looking for something new this is the spot!

All sorts of ways to create a bowl of chili to your taste. Nice portions, very fresh. Service is quick and prices are fair.

First time eating here, and I didn't know what to expect. My "build your own" chili turned out amazing. Prices were very affordable. Definitely a place to visit again.

Had the shrimp Po boy with sweet potato tater tots. my husband had the burger. both were good. we tried the shrimp chili which was spicy and very tasty. we did get the tuna appetizer that was very over cooked and lacked a lot of flavor.

Always good...even beyond chili choices. Prefer the chili choices over the brunch menu.

As always, Chili U did not disappoint. The food is always good and the portions are always generous. We were surprised that the place was nearly empty and the service was SLOW!
