Chili shack

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... read 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

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

Nice unassuming place with friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere. Good selection of beer and a nice patio out back. Chili was very tasty, even though the portion was a little on the small side. Really good cornbread. Would definitely go back, hopefully to catch some live music.

At first glance I'm sure this place will turn some people away as it appears to be a biker bar. Don't let that deter you though as the food is excellent! We saw Slim's on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and just HAD to check it out. I ordered the Chili Verde over Jalapeno Mac and cheese with a side of... More

This unassuming (ok, a little scary looking from the street) is so welcoming once you open the door! Seat yourself - you notice a funny mix of business casual office workers and tattooed, pierced bikers. We tried the Texas Red and the Chili Verde - Texas was ok but Chili Verde was excellent - tart with a building heat -... More

We were looking for a spot to grab a bite with our kids after a long flight. Slims cannot serve kids but we went next door to the Pig Iron BBQ which is part of the same restaurant. Awesome food! Great story!

This place is a roadhouse. Don't expect that they went all soft just because they were on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. Ambiance aside, the chilli was excellent. Limited beer selection, but what they have is good.
