About Covington Chili

As one of the original chili parlors in Greater Cincinnati, Covington Chili has been serving quality, inexpensive food and making people happy with our flavorful ingredients for generations. Covington Chili is located in the heart of the renaissance currently sweeping through Covington, KY.  The restaurant itself was opened by Christy and Mae Terzieff, who ran the diner until the 1950's. It was then purchased by two Greek brothers, Tim and Michael Stephans from Kastoria, Greece.  George Stamatakos bought it in 1996, and ran the restaurant for twenty years until it came under new ownership in 2016.  Current owner Greg Harris (pictured)--inspired by his late Grandfather Leon Frenkel, who owned successful restaurants in Chicago--emphasizes quality ingredients purchased from local vendors, and frequently offers off-menu specials.
