World Famous Chili



Charlie's Chili has been open for business on Balboa Island since the summer of '67.  after nearly 5 decades of service we have established a reputation for quality food and service.  Here is just a sampling of recent customer reviews.  We invite you to stop and by and form your own opinion.

Above and beyond service is always to be had, if you get Amanda. She never let our glass go dry. She has a catchy laugh, a great smile and has what you need before you can ask. We only sit in her section. We'll drive down from Bakersfield just to enjoy a meal here, with her!

I am planning my trip to Newport this weekend for Labor Day (coming from Vegas) and Charlie's is definitely on my list. Craving the tuna melt and cup of chili already. Charlie's has great food and a very friendly staff. You can tell they love their job! Who wouldn't tough, best office view ever!

Great food, great, service, great prices &&& best of all... great with our dog!! We ate there last night & it couldn't have been better. Our waitress was very accommodating to both our 2 year old & our dog & was very glad to have us & served us wonderful food, in an extremely timely manner & for a really decent price. Check the place out... you won't be disappointed!

My family and I decided to go to Charlie chili's. We sat on the patio outside the restaurant, the weather was perfect and the service was great. My grandfather ordered the standard bowl of chili with large helpings of onions and cheese, my mom got the clam chowder ( the bowl was left clean), and my father and I ordered the special, tacos with chili cheese fries. It was some of the  best tacos I have ever has.
