Best Chili? Westchester/Hudson Valley

Hey everyone, noticed there really are no chili discussions on here so my question to you all is where can I get the best chili in westchester (preferably upper) and the hudson valley? also who makes the spiciest? seems hard to find a nice spicy chili these days...

  1. THe Blazer Pub makes a great chili!
    Route 22
    Purdys, NY 10578

    1. None of these are in upper Westchester, but I like Piper's Kilt Chili. It's not very hot though. AJ's in New Ro has very good chili, which has medium heat, but very nice flavor and huge chunks of meat. I have never been and to be completely honest, not even sure if it's still open, but there was a place in Valhalla called So Dam Hot which supposedly had delicious, very spicy chili

        second pipers kilt but has to have the red onions, cheese & sourcream added plus hot sauce. city limits has also served very respectable chili in the past...

          I always get cheddar an onions. I never add hot sauce unless I know there is a little secret stash somewhere. Not a big tabasco fan

          So Dam Hot is still there - still going strong and very delicious chili!

        3. I think the Roadhouse in Rye used to make a good chili. Not sure if they still do.

            Good call. forgot all about that. If I remember, they have multiple types of chili - ground beef, chunks of beef and a meatless chili

              i thought so...but haven't eaten there in a bit.

          2. My ds makes a great super spicy chili in our crockpot. Not the answer you were looking for however.

            1. The chili at Birdsall House in Peekskill is delicious! Made with stout and chunks of meat. That plus a side salad (and, of course, beer!) can make a meal. Except of course you'll want to eat more things.
