The chili is not you average chili, it is beans and meat served separately on a plate and you can add "bean juice"and chili powder to your liking. It wasn't the best chili I have ever had, but it was quaint and the staff was...More

Not your Typical Chili, but it's my favorite, because you can make it how you like it. The Burgers, as they say, are Hot of the Grill, and Delicious. Love the Tamales too. Family owned and Always Friendly...I've heard people come in when I've been...More

Diners should understand that Fritz's is best experienced on site, with an experienced patron like myself, who can advise one on how to prepare and eat it. Hopefully, the explanation below will offer some insight to you. Fritz's Chili Parlor is an old fashioned diner...More

They are famous for their chili and I honestly don't know how they are still in business! Obviously enough people have been disappointed with their concept of chili, because the waitress tried to tell me what to expect. They use PLAIN, FLAVORLESS, UNSEASONED ground beef...More
