It’s a word with a double meaning – it’s chili outside and we want some chili in our insides. Mara joined the Bert Show to talk about her favorite chili restaurants, no matter the kind.
Happy Post Thanksgiving everybody. It is cold outside – I think it’s pretty early to be cold in Atlanta this year. This really resonated with a lot of people – depends on if you like Texas style chili, chili with carne, white chili, green chili…
Let me get started with a lot of the BBQ restaurants. Because, if you’re going to eat BBQ, that’s a great place to get chili. So at Fox Bros you can get it with tater tots – that’s a thing. Dixie Q, you know they just won the Brookhaven chili contest, so theirs is really good…Loyal Q…you can see on our show, Smokejack in Alpharetta, lots of smoky goodness in that one.
Some of the classics – definitely Souper Jenny. They do a turkey chili that everyone loves called My Dad’s Turkey chili – that’s really super famous around town. And that inspired Mitch Chili at Metrofresh in Midtown.
Farm to Ladle and Breadwinner is a big one. You get a lot with the turkey chili. Chili’s so hearty and you make it and let it sit for a while.
