Chili in Dallas

I've seen recommendations for a number of different types of food, but I did a search and didn't find anything in particular on chili in Dallas. Now I know there is a huge variance in what people consider chili, but in order to get the most feedback, I'm going to leave it open to all interpretations of chili: beans/no beans, ground beef, etc. . .

  1. Chili in Dallas? I don't think you can find a 'good' bowl of chili unless it comes off the stovetop of a home kitchen. Tolbert's in Grapevine does a decent Texas chili (Terlingua guidelines). ground beef. Corner Bakery does a good chili and I think it has beans.

    1. Tolberts in grapevine is the place to go in the greater DFW area. His daughter is using his original recipe.

      1. Interesting, the man who empties our recycled paper in the office mentioned that the best chili he finds are at Tex-Mex restaurants. Kinda makes sense, since they have all the ingredients, and usually make a chili for enchiladas. I'll have to quiz him the next time he makes his rounds and get more info. May not be a munu item but one might have to ask for it.
