After seeing Chilleens on 17 on the program Bar Rescue, my wife and I decided to visit on a recent trip to Las Vegas. We had to travel 200 miles tround trip out of our way to go there.
Our server was Melissa. She was prompt, attentive, and met every request with a smile.
I started with the "17 sweet tea", a non-alcoholic drink made for travelers. I am not a big tea drinker, but this was fantastic! I had to have two. My wife ordered the fried green chiles. Since moving to the southwest, she has become a real chile eater. She raved about them. I tried them too, and they were very good.
I ordered the briscuit, which came with slaw and baked beans. The briscuit was melt-in-your-mouth tender. The BBQ sauce was so good that I asked for more. The slaw was very good, and the beans had a spicy kick, making them different and better than store-bought.
She ordered one of the burgers, and was very impressed. Then came desert. OMG! That is the biggest portion of strawberry shortcake that I have ever seen. She could not begin to finish it. I got to help. :-) The portions were plenty. I finished my dinner, but she took a box along for the ride.
The owner, Scott, was very personable. even though he was busy behind the bar, he took time to say "Hello" and pose for a picture with me.
I never rave about a restaurant, but this time I did. It was worth every mile that we traveled out of the way. I am glad that we did.
