Looked a little rough on the exterior, but I'm glad my brother saw it on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and insisted we go. It was fun and funky on the inside with delightful staff and really great food. We had a party of 5 for lunch on a Friday, and were able to get a table right away. We had... More

We saw this place on DDD website so decided to try it. The waitresses were awesome! We sat on the BBQ side but were able to order chili from slims. Wings good. Chili was somewhat flavorless.

Nice restaurant. Saw this on DD&D and thought we'd check it out. Of course, I ordered the Texas Red Chili (with "the works" added) and jalapeño mac & cheese. We were not disappointed! Biker type of bar, in a light industrial, blue collar part of town. Not a fake dive bar-the real deal. I really liked this place and would... More

We had a gift certificate to Sliim's Last Chance and were a bit nervous about what we were in for. We found a fun place filled with fun people and great food. Of course, the chili was the recommended dish. We had the brisket chili and now we know why everyone raves about it. The meat was perfectly seaoned and... More

As seen on "Diners, Drive Ins and Dives", this place had 4 different types of chili either on their own or covered with the works. They also serve chili on hot dogs or hamburgers. Some evenings they have live music. It's a "biker bar" type restaurant with a pool table in the middle of the room. We stopped by for... More

Wanted to see what all the hype was about. We were not disappointed. My husband loves chili and is particular. He was impressed. We love the green and red chili. I had the green chili with Mac and cheese. Usual combo but very good. We played pool afterwards and loved it. Pool was only .75 cents or game. Unheard of... More

On our way from Seattle's Museum of History and Industry to the Museum of Flight we stopped at this BBQ place and noticed a funky restaurant next doo to it. Slim's Last Chance Restaurant to be exact. Funky place to be sure. However, the food was excellent and the chilli was to die for. Chilli is (as we were told)... More
