Pete at the Chow WagonWelcome! My name is Peter Latella, owner of Tepee Pete's Chow Wagon, located at The Tepee on Historic RT 20, Cherry Valley. The Chow Wagon started in 2000 and has been a favorite ever since for locals and tourists alike who enjoy a good chili dog. Now, if you are one of our thousands of fans around the world or if you are just down the road, you are sure to find out what I specialize in, and that's Chili. Now I wouldn't go around and say it's the worlds best, I just say 'it's nearly famous.' But don't take my word for it, check out our reviews on Trip Advisor. 'I am just a guy with a pot of chili and a dream.'

Now anyone can make a very hot chili, but not everyone can make a hot chili that tastes great. I call it 'the Chi of Chili'. You can check it out yourself here at The Chow Wagon (first shot free), or if you don't live close we can ship it to you. Check our online store for 7 Pepper Hot, Very Veggie Hot or Spicy Hot Harvest, for those seeking the perfect "slow burn". Our Mild, Very Veggie Mild and Harvest Mild chili(s) will appeal to more delicate palates. Belkalo (that's Buffalo and Elk Chili), Garlic Chili and Ommegang Beer Chili are part of a line of seasonal specialty chili(s) that I make in limited quantities.

Be sure to check out the rest of my menu, because I do make a lot more than just a great pot of chili and chili dogs. (Sorry folks - I just can't ship out everything on the menu. Well not yet). Enjoy! Hope to see you soon.
