Foursquare Tips

  • Chili Johns was trademarked in 1902, making it one of the oldest trademarks in the registry, even older than Coca Cola. It's also some of the best chili you'll eat in your life.
  • delicious spicy beef and medium chicken chili! cathy is super sweet and the service makes this place top notch! very reminiscent of the diner from the TV show 'twin peaks' !
  • Don't be surprised to see movie stars... like Clark Duke!!!!
  • Love how they give first-timers. A trial taste of each type of chili. I went for the chicken but they were all good.
  • Fantastic ice box pineapple pie!!! Spicy beef or chicken chilli on bread!!! One of burbank's oldest establishments. Over a 100 years old. A mother/ son team manage it.
  • Try the tamales!
  • Chili dog and Chili on rice are amazing!!!
  • Fantastic chili and spaghetti. The tamale, on the other hand, was just okay. A bit mushy.
  • Check out Chili John's as seen on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives
  • Try having chili with rice. Mmmm... Fantastic! It's not on the menu, so you'll have to ask for it.
  • If u r coming for the first time, try a chilli bowl. Any. They are all awesome. They let you taste em if you ask. Really quick at serving.

  • Some say this was a favorite of Walt Disney.
  • Soooo delicious. I had the chicken chili bowl with beans and I added cheese and onions! No wonder they're the oldest restaurant in Burbank. I highly recommend eating here, enjoy!
  • Beef Chili over rice and cheese, onion, crackers on top. I love this place, feels just like your grandma's place.
  • Great local restaurant!
  • Medium chicken chili over spaghetti is incredible. Finish with lemon pie served on a chilled plate to cleanse the palate. Beyond awesome!
  • adding pickles to your chili is key... also if your brave enough ask for some Dave's hot sauce..
  • All types of chili are fantastic. No fries and don't ask
