Each cup of chili comes just how you like it; with or without beans, and with any toppings you like including shredded cheddar cheese or onions. And of course, each cup is served with saltine crackers for dipping.

This year’s Free Chili Day event marks 10 years Philippe’s and Dolores Chili has teamed up for this event.

The two companies have a relationship built upon time. The 1970’s is when it all began, and Dolores Chili is still the only chili available at Philippe’s. Both establishments have plenty in common being family-owned, Los Angeles-based companies. Dolores has been in business since 1954 and Philippe’s celebrated 111 years late last year. Dolores and Philippe’s are run by third and fourth generation family members respectively, and both are built with the intent of hard work and core values that make them so great.

Philippe’s, being one of the oldest and best-known restaurants in Southern California and nationwide, is renowned by its chili which pairs well with any of the restaurant’s French Dips, including: beef, pork, ham, lamb, turkey and pastrami.

The chili is available at Philippe’s daily by the cup or bowl, with or without beans and all the fixings, and is always served with a side of saltine crackers. Some French Dip lovers even like to dip or top their sandwich with the chili.

Dolores Chili is made at Dolores Canning Co. in East Los Angeles. The all-beef Dolores Chili Brick is sold in 16 oz. packages in grocery stores throughout the Western United States including: Albertson’s, Food 4 Less, Ralphs and Stater Brothers.
