2018 Best Chili Finds in DFW

chili2.jpgby Steven Doyle

We have written about the history of chili, and Dallas is definitely a large part of that. The original Tolbert’s downtown served some of the best chili that could be found on the planet. Also the original Chilis’, the chain that can be found just about anywhere, opened over 40 years ago by Larry Lavine at the now-defunct Greenville Avenue and Meadow location served fantastic chili back in the day, with a recipe inspired by the first chili cook-off in Terlingua.

One of our favorite’s comes from Graham Dodds and I am sure we will be tasting his new bowl of red at his new post as Exec chef at the Statler Hotel.

As we do each year, we bring you our favorite bowls of chili in the DFW area. Please note there is not a bean to be found on this list. If you do njoy beans with your chili, we invite you to check out another article we wrote some time ago on the subject.  Continue reading
