Yep, years ago before the new ownership, I ate here and was unimpressed with the XXX; I needed more peppers to spice it. Time passes, and for the last at least 8 years, the food...


The last time I was here, I remember having a very good lunch. But today, I was severely disappointed. First of all, I walked across downtown Austin to get here, because I was...

Chilli Parlor - 3/21/2006

This is a very popular hang-out and lunch site for those working around the Capitol area. And it's no guess why. They always have a lunch special and their chilli is one of the best around Austin. Theirs is very, very hearty with actual slices of meat. They also have burgers (which, conveniently, can be topped with chilli) and other specials such as enchiladas. Although the inside is dark and loud, it's worth a trip if you're in the mood for some good, hearty lunch. more

Chili for the hard core heat freaks - Awesome queso for the rest of us! 10/24/2005

The XXX chili is a legend. If you aren't proud of your ability to eat the hottest of the hot, don't bother. The other chili's are more edible and are great. This is an awesome place to take out of state visitors for a taste of Texas. Order bowls of different chili's and see how they do. ;-) The queso alone is worth coming in for (no meat). Really, really good! It ain't fancy. Some of the stuff nailed to the walls may not have been dusted in this decade. But the food is great, and the atmosphere is Austin. more

A Chili place Austin deserves 8/23/2005

If you believe Austin is the best city in the world, then Texas Chili parlor is the best place to get Chili in Austin. The all-meat chili was what attracted my low-carb friends...the authentic, casual atmosphere, laid back staff, great (great) chili and happy hour/drinks kept making us go back over and over again. They've also got a little tex-mex, burgers and staying open late, it's a delightful place to drop by late at night and get some good chili. Hint: The XXX hot chili is (almost) not for human consumption more

Hot Hot Hot 8/9/2005

Texas Chili Parlor is located in downtown Austin at Lavaca and Enfield. They have easy to access, but hard to get parking. They serve burgers, enchiladas, and best of all-chili. They have XXX and Habanero Chili, which can make your eyes water for a week. The staff is great, but I will never understand why they don't serve cornbread-aren't we in Texas??? more

  • In Short
    This Capitol area cafe's decor mixes the faux antique signs of chain restaurants with beer joint bric-a-brac. The crowd includes businessmen, construction workers and state employees. The dining rooms are small and the tables are close together at peak times. The chili is served with only a few slivers of onion and jalapeno. The meat is tender, yet keeps its shape. There are three serving sizes and three levels of heat.
