Gold Star Chili is The Flavor of Cincinnati. We fuel good times with great flavors and a warm heart. In 1965, our founders, Frank, Charlie, Dave and Basheer Daoud, recent immigrants to the U.S., pooled their resources to purchase a restaurant called Hamburger Heaven in Mt. Washington, Ohio. Along with the restaurant came a recipe for Cincinnati-style Chili that proved to be the most popular item on their menu. Not long after starting to run the business, the brothers realized they had an opportunity to create a new restaurant based on the chili itself and after much tinkering with the recipe, they did just that and the Gold Star Chili brand was born.

Gold Star Chili now has 87 locations located throughout Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. For more information, please visit
