2021 Best Chili Finds in DFW

by 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.

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 enjoy beans with your chili, we invite you to check out another article we wrote some time ago on the subject. But feel free to legume! Continue reading

Fred’s Texas Cafe Announces New West Fort Worth Location Opening Spring 2022

Fred’s Texas Cafe announced today its plans for expansion into West Fort Worth with the opening of a NEW Fred’s Texas Cafe on 7101 Camp Bowie West in 2022. This exciting new opening will mark the closing of a chapter and the start of a new one as the restaurant’s flagship location at 915 Currie St. will close its doors on December 31, 2020 and relocate to the new, bigger space come early spring.

Purchased in 1978 by JD and Gari Chandler, the Currie St. burger joint has seen the city of Fort Worth change around it; the building itself has been in that location for almost 50 years (previously Ken’s). During the restaurant’s four decades of operation, the business has stayed family-owned and local through the partnership of long-time friends and co-owners Terry Chandler (JD and Gari’s Son) and Quincy Wallace. The business partners, chuckwagon cooks, and familiar faces to Fred’s regulars are excited for the opportunity to bring Texas’ best burgers and western cuisine to an area of town that hasn’t had a chance to experience Fred’s signature style of food.

Call it Crockett Row, call it West 7th, call it what you will. With the constant changes around this area of Fort Worth it’s nice to find something that has remained pretty much the same for four decades. Fred’s Texas Cafe has been at the same location on Currie Street for 40 years.   Just a little holdout shack squeezed in among the glitz and noise of bars and restaurants geared towards the younger set, Fred’s caters to everyone. Young, old, city and country everyone comes to Fred’s for good food, good music and their “cold ass beer”. Continue reading

A true bowl of Texas red is near and dear to me, and I am always willing to order a bowl if found on any menu I stumble across. I am pleased to report that there are more chili offerings this year than last, and many have upped the ante in developing a perfect bowl. With temperatures dipping into freezing ranges in the coming month, what a perfect opportunity to go out and taste a bowl for yourself.    Continue reading
