  • Two Illinois Restaurants Rank in the Top 25 Restaurants that Serve The Best Chili In America!

    Come on who doesn't love Chili? It warms the belly on a cold winter day and warms the heart in the middle of summer. It is one of the most comforting foods in existence. The Daily Meal, a National Food Publication describes Chili as "A well-made bowl of chili is a timeless American classic with nearly universal appeal". In fact, the publication has conducted a national study in an effort to determine "The Best Chili In America". Springfield, Illinois was once considered the Chili Capital of the Country with over a hundred Chili Establishments, including street vendors. in the City. Through the years, and one by one, that number dwindled, and the once Chili Capital lost its Chili Bragging rights. That was until a recent National search for best Chili conducted by the Daily Meal. We want to Congratulate the Chili Parlor in Springfield who made the top 25 list of Best Chili in the Country. It was Founded in 1945 as Joe Rogers Chili and now known as the Chili Parlor after an ownership change. Congratulations and thank you for making our community proud. All of us at Dew Chilli are honored to also be on the Top 25 best Chili in the Country. Dew Chilli founded in 1909. The Daily Meal states, "The recipie for its legendary chli hasn't changed since they day it opened, and while it's a closely guarded secret, it's rich and simply made with ground beef and beans. You can order it as-is, atop tamales, or on a hot dog; pasta and more". WOW! What an honor. While times have been difficult for restaurants around the country it's an honor to first be chosen by you our community as the best in our community. Thank you so much for your support. Now, to be among a list of outstanding establishments in the country. We only have one word. WOW!


    The Dew Chilli Parlor located on Wabash Avenue has turned out it's lights and locked the door. But there is more to the story than meets the eye. Many people have been calling and several reporters have as well wanting to know what happened. The Dew has been at this Wabash Avenue location for 5 years and our lease was up. The Decision was to extend the lease or move on. Since there are two other locations in the Springfield Market. The Dew Pub and Grill 2690 S. Dirksen Parkway Springfield, Illinois 217-679-1910 The Dew Pub and Grill 301 North Grand Avenue West Springfield, Illinois 217-670-2530 This location is the historic building which once housed the Red Coach Inn. The decision was made to look outside of the Springfield Market. Chatham, Illinois made contact with the owners several months ago and the Dew has been exploring the Chatham, Illinois Market. We still are. Also, the Dew has been looking into the Decatur, Illinois Market. In fact, The Dew has entered into negotiations on a location in Decatur. Other Markets which have expressed interest in having a Dew location happen to be out of state. Missouri and Indiana. But at this time the company is focusing on Illinois Markets. All the employees who worked at the Wabash location have been reassigned to either a Dew location or to Godfather's Pizza which the owners also have in Central Illinois. Thank you for your interest and your ongoing support.
