About Petro's Chili and Chips

The petro made its debut at the 1982 World’s Fair. An instant sensation at the time, this delectable fair fare has fallen into relative obscurity in recent years. However, lucky folks in Knoxville, TN don’t have to miss out on this culinary wonder. Petro’s Chili and Chips is slinging their eponymous menu item on the daily, providing an experience avid eaters across the city don’t want to miss.

So, what exactly is a petro? It’s a layered dish that starts off with a base of corn chips or noodles. Then, add chili, cheddar and jack cheese, diced tomatoes, and green onions in that order and top it all off with a dollop of sour cream. The menu at Petro’s Chili and Chips serves both classic varieties as well as vegetarian takes. As a bonus? Any petro that starts with a base of corn chips is 100% gluten-free, meaning virtually everyone can indulge here. Eager to try this unique cuisine? Then either hit up Petro Chili and Chips or book ‘em for your own get-together. This unique and delicious dish will not disappoint.
