The Chili Shak: A Chili Parlor of Houston's Own

The Chili Shak: A Chili Parlor of Houston's Own

The Chili Shak became the first and only chili-focused restaurant in Houston when it opened its doors in July 2011. That's when Bernard Montgomery finally gave in to years of demands from his family to open a restaurant that would showcase his chili recipe, one which has garnered him awards from here all the way back to California. In Los Angeles, he told me one day, he started out just preparing his grandmother's recipe for family gatherings. PHOTOS BY TROY FIELDS
