This place is great! They specialize in chili mac which is chili on spaghetti. Of course they have bowls of chili and a frito pie which is chili with fritos. They have 4 types of chili: Cincinatti, Texas, Terlingua, and Veggie (in order of spiciness). A couple of chili tips - you can ask for half of one chili and half of another (I like the Texas and Terlingua), you can ask for extra grease on the Texas and it comes out more soupy, you can get a tenderfoot size (may not be on the menu) for a little cheaper as the portions of the chili mac are huge, and you can ask for a chili sampler which is free to taste all the chilis before you order. If you get full size chili mac, you can ask for a large bowl with it so that it will fit on the plate or it is tough to eat without the spaghetti falling off the plate. I also love the wings here. They are grilled, buffalo style with chili powder sprinkled on them. They are so good that I have been to Hard Times before and just ordered wings - but the chili is so good that it is tough to pass up. They also have good sweet tea which is a big plus in my book.
