We came for lunch and it was fairly busy. They only had a few servers but our server Shannon was excellent. We liked that they gave samples of their four chili options which came with no beans. We did not care for the vegetarian but the other three were good. You could have beans added if you wished. We liked the chili dogs and chicken wrap. We did not care for their French fries which were neither crispy or served hot.

Hard Times serves alcohol and has a bar with several seasonal beers on tap as well as domestic and imported beers. The chili is good and they have a take-out service. There are televisions and a jukebox, so it's not a quiet enclave, just be aware if you had intentions of studying while you eat! They used to have key lime pie, but not anymore, and I really miss it!

There is an outside eating area, but it allows smoking and so it always reeks of cigarettes. Do not sit outside if you can't handle cigarette smoke.

I like their grilled wings, especially the chili lime ones. The manager is very friendly there. Their burgers are pretty good as well. They did get rid of their burger night last time I went, but they still have specials daily. The place is a pretty typical bar/ restaurant otherwise.

This place has a nice atmosphere, friendly servers, and delicious food - several kinds of Chilli specialties. One of those out of the way places that you just have to experience!

Took our family there on Valentine's Day. Expected to be crowded but we were seated right away. Food and service was great! This was our second time at the Hard Times and I wouldn't hesitate to go back again the next time we are in College Park!
