  • Neighbors: Neighbors Latin Chili features succulent ground beef simmered with tender red kidney beans, vibrant red and green peppers, and aromatic onions simmered in a rich tomato sauce. Adding a kick of heat are spicy jalapeños and garlic. But what sets this chili apart is the incorporation of sweet plantains, lending a unique Puerto Rican twist.
  • Old Ox Brewery: Chisholm Chili. Steeped in Chef Mat’s cultural heritage, this dish is a tribute to the Chisholm Trail, the cowboys and their horses. For a time after the Civil War cattle were driven from south Texas to the rail station in Abilene, Kansas. The livestock were transported to the north and eastern markets. Chili was a tasty way for the cowboys and crew to sustain themselves through this perilous journey utilizing what they had on hand, beef and chiles. Enjoy beef, onion, chiles, garlic, Golden Ox Ale, tomato and masa.
  • Rai’s Rendezvous: Harissa Chili with Aji Verde, Halloumi cheese, pickled red onion.
  • Rai’s Pizza: Rich & Hearty No-Bean Chili with short rib, Fresno peppers, cheddar and Jack cheeses.
  • Texas Roadhouse: Made from scratch Texas Style Chili with pieces of our filet and rib eye that we hand cut daily.
  • Wicket Door Pub: White Bean Chicken Chili with pulled smoked chicken, cannellini beans, sweet corn, Jalapeno and spices, finished with cilantro and lime.

Ashburn has two stations: Station 6 in Ashburn & Station 22 in Landsdowne. Only 56% of the AVFRD operating budget is supported by state and county funding….AVFRD must raise the rest. It costs more than $12,000 to safely outfit a firefighter. Click here for more information—>WAR WAGON!
