As a Brit visiting the US for business, I really wanted to go somewhere that offered what I would call the typical American bar experience and I believe I found it. Lovely bar on the main road through Grapevine. We popped in for a bite to eat but ended up staying for 6 hours! Sports on the TV, live music... More

The bride and I went in just before 5:00 p.m. on a Tuesday. An employee greeted us, and we said we were going to sit at the bar. After that, we apparently became invisible. There were a total of 6 customers in the restaurant, and 5 employees that we could see. After waiting about 10 minutes for someone to ask... More

Visited as a group...mainly for the live music and for group members to enjoy the bar. The food choices included chili, mexican food, hamburgers and steaks. I ordered the chili, as that is what they are famous for making. I would give it 5 or 6 out of 10. Just nothing to write home to mom about. When I asked... More

Your salad prices are a joke. I came in and u were out of salmon for the salad i wanted. My friends were eating by the time i found out. Then, i settle for toxic hormone injected chicken and it finally arrived. It was the proper portions for an anorexic 15 year old girl, or a bird, not quite sure.... More

Best dang chili parlour EVER! Come for the chili, stay for the music! And, in the process, enjoy some of the coldest beer in town! Prices are reasonable, band quality is superb, acoustics make you just want to get up and dance! Tolbert's has it all!

We were wandering around Grapevine/Main Street- one of our favorite things to do- and decided to try Tolbert's. Good choice! My hot dog was large, and covered in Texas Red Chili, served with fries or coleslaw. She had the nachos...BTW there are different renditions of nachos on the menu. If you have a preference, be sure to ask. They have... More

Known for their chilli- didn't disappoint. There is even a vegetarian chilli option. Great atmosphere (west meets sports bar) and they have live music.
