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.

There are thee size bowls from the small to the very large . Service is good and the food is very good. If in downtown Grapevine make this... More

I really enjoyed the casual atmosphere , attentive staff & awesome chili. The martinis were perfect, shaken not stirred for you 007 fans. A friend had recommended the zucchini appetizer so we tried them but they didn't impress. Maybe they were out & substituted frozen ones, not sure. The chili is definitely the star here!

This restaurant is known for it's Chili. It has been involved with the Terlingua Chili cook off for many years. The food is pretty good overall, and the selection is good. The fries taste like fries and the hush-puppies leave a little to be desired in the taste category. Our party had catfish, burritos and a burger. All were pretty... More
