Delicious food in your belly is one of the best things about life. When that food is free it makes things even better. The sixth annual Free Chili Day, sponsored by Dolores Chili, at Philippe the Original in Downtown L.A., is finally here.
The first 500 customers at Philippe’s on Tuesday, Jan. 26 beginning at 10:30 a.m. will receive a voucher for a free cup of Dolores chili, with the purchase of a sandwich. Guests will receive a voucher at one of the two main entrances upon arriving to the restaurant. They can then use that at the counter to get a free cup of chili, with or without beans, and topped with shredded cheddar cheese, or onions.
“It’s a great event and a memorable day for many – some come specifically for Free Chili Day – and others show up and get a nice surprise,” said Philippe’s General Manager, Richard Binder. “Everybody loves the chili.”
Dolores Chili and Philippe’s have a relationship built upon time. The 1970’s is where it all began and Dolores Chili is still sold exclusively at Philippe’s. Both establishments have plenty in common being family-owned and operate in Los Angeles. 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, is renowned by its chili, which pairs well with any of their signature French Dip sandwiches, including: beef, pork, ham, lamb, and turkey.
Dolores Chili is available at Philippe’s daily by the cup or bowl, with or without beans, shredded cheddar or onions, and is served with a side of crackers. Some French Dip lovers even like to dip or top their sandwich with it.
Dolores Chili is made at Dolores Canning Co., referring to itself as L.A.’s favorite chili, is located in East Los Angeles. The Dolores Chili Brick is sold in 16 oz. packages in grocery stores throughout LA and Southern California, including: Ralph’s, Food 4 Less, and Stater Brothers. Another option is a five-pound tray for larger entertainment feasts like the big game at Smart & Final. They also have a Chicken Chili Brick for sale.

The two have had a partnership that won’t quit and each look to continue their affair for many years to come.
On top of the free chili voucher, guests will also receive a raffle ticket that will give them the chance to win free chili for a year from Dolores Chili. Those that do not take home the grand prize will have the opportunity to win Philippe’s gift cards, apparel, and other Dolores & Philippe’s prizes.
