In all my time living in Austin, I had never been to the Texas Chili Parlor. They are supposed to have one of the hottest bowls of chili in town, so we decided to go their to satisfy my need for heat.
I enjoyed the meal completely, from the laid back vibe to the friendly waitresses, but am sad to say that I did not find the chili particularly spicy. The waitress was incredibly impressed that I was eating the XXX without flinching, perhaps it just wasn't that spicy of a batch that day? Regardless, it was still a great meal.
