In search of a bowl of chili

First things first. The chili you order in a restaurant is different than chili you might eat at cookoff. The meat is almost always ground beef and beans are often cooked into the mix. Also, the brew is usually thinner as long cooking times and less spices are usually used.

That doesn’t make it bad.

While chili parlors used to dot the landscape like Starbucks, few remain. 

Tulsa appears to be the state’s chili mecca.

Not does it have Ike’s, but Ron’s Chili and Burgers started there, too. Ron’s has since spread across to Oklahoma City.

Have yet to go to a place that specializes in onion burgers that doesn’t serve chili. Same with coney establishments.

While Chili’s does serve a bowl of the red, it’s off the menu. They will serve you a bowl if you ask for it, and it’s a pretty fair rendition.

If you know of any good chili joints out there, let me know. I’m always on the lookout.
