First, we searched for some hints at who might be given this top honor, and here's what we found...

TripAdvisor picked a great Long Beach Island eatery for the top spot, Wally's is the choice of over 600 reviewers. Wally's, in Surf City is at 712 Long Beach Blvd.

A couple of years back (2018), Mental Floss named Ocean Cafe in Long Branch and Shrewsbury as their choice for the best chili in the state. I love it when the honors come so close to home.

Delish said the best chili in our state is at Rutt's Hut in Clifton, and they were also recently named the best hot dog in the state, so the chili dogs must be amazing.

The website Eat This, Not That says the best chili in the Garden State belongs to Arthur's Tavern in Morris Plains.

So, we turned to you to ask for your favorite chili place right here at the Jersey Shore as the cooler weather approaches and football season kicks into full gear, and here's what you told us in an informal poll..

#4 The Wharfside Restaurant, Point Pleasant Beach. It must be the Sweet Chili Shrimp on their lunch menu that got them all the votes. This Point Pleasant beach favorite has a gorgeous view and everything on the menu is outstanding

#3 Ocean Cafe, Shrewsbury & Long Branch. The Chicken Chile sounds great, and many of you agree with Mental Floss (see above). They have locations in Shrewsbury and Long Branch.

#2 The Ark, Point Pleasant Beach. The Ark is a local favorite and has been for years. And you can find their amazing chili in the Soups section of their menu, and you voted that chili in the top 2!

#1 Klee's Bar & Grill, Seaside Heights. More people mentioned Klee's than any other chili, putting it on the top of our list. The Seaside Heights favorite is off course located at 101 Boulevard, and when your craving is chili, Klee's may be your place!
