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.

I try and make a point to go to a "triple-d" place whenever I visit a new town. I went to Slim's for lunch and had a great bowl of Brisket Chili and a couple of Mason Jars of a local Pale Ale. Prices seemed reasonable, the chili was excellent and the service (at the bar) was attentive. Not the... More

Great place to get a great bowl of green or red chili. The female bartender was so good looking that i stepped on my tongue twice. It was okay, because ii eat my chili hot enough to keep it numb. Don't go there because of the hot waitress, go there because of the good chili and good beer. Guy Fieri... More
