The JC’s Chili Difference

What makes JC’s Chili different? It’s hand crafted in small batches from whole ingredients.

Take our beef chili for instance. We start with whole eye of round steak, then carefully trim the fat, cut the meat, season it with our secret spice blend, and then pan sear it – all before carefully dicing and tossing it into the chili pot.

We take pride in our ingredients and in the process of crafting our chili. We strive for the best quality, and therefore the best product for you!

Bison Beer Chili is Back!


Our Columbus Beer Week chili was such a success, we cooked up another batch just for you guys!

What’s so great about making our chili in small batches is that the ingredients are always fresh – jalapeños can be spicier, peppers more bright and full of flavor – and that can definitely change the taste of the final product.

And honestly, this might just be our best batch yet.

Summer Hours

We’ll be switching to summer hours starting next week!

We’ve had many of you express interest in us staying open later, so we’re making it happen! Hopefully we will be able to satisfy your dinner and cookout needs! (and it allows us more time for production!)

We will no longer be open Tuesday and Wednesday, but will be open from 11:30-7:00pm Thursday-Saturday.

Bacon Chili is back for a limited time!


If you’re like us, you love this time of year.

Not just because we get a hint of spring, but because of March Madness. Not much can beat the buzzer-beating action of the college basketball tournament – but our bacon chili comes close! It’s got all the fresh vegetables and spices we’re famous for, plus thick cut, twice-smoked bacon – there’s a reason it’s a fan favorite!

So enjoy some b-ball with a b-bowl, starting this Thursday, March 24. But don’t let the clock run out on you because it’s only here for a limited time! Simply call to order ahead or come on in, and make this the tastiest tournament yet.

The Event Chili and Gift Certificates

We can help take the stress out of hosting and giving: Great food and discounted Gift Certificates.

For any gathering, hot food is always a hit, but the fixing of a variety that will please every palate and nutritional requirement is a lot of work!! Don’t slave over the stove, place your order by visiting, or give us a call at 614.867.5016 — for orders of refrigerated product of more than 2 quarts, or more than a dozen baked goods, please order two days in advance. Frozen chili is always available.

What better way to warm a relationship than to give a JC’s Just Chili Gift Certificate (and you save 10% on each certificate this holiday season)!

Let JC’s Just Chili be the hot main course at your next event, and join our band of satisfied customers!
