The Chili Shak - Closed

9600 Fondren Road Houston, TX 77096 | Outer Loop - SW | 713-995-1101

Location Description:

At this family-run Braeburn spot, there are huge stacks of napkins on each tidy table — and that's because you'll need them for the wonderfully messy chili dogs and chili burgers The Chili Shak sells. True to its name, everything on the menu features chili. You can get a bowl of it all on its own, of course, which tastes like Wolf Brand chili made by someone's loving father. (This is a compliment, I promise.) But it's best on top of a Frito pie with jalapeños and fine shreds of cheese or on a big, beefy burger with mayo, lettuce, melting cheese and crunchy red onions.
