Chili’s Grill & Bar
Chili’s Grill & Bar (also referred to simply as “Chili’s”) is an American casual dining restaurant chain that features Tex-Mex-style cuisine. The company was founded by Larry Lavine in Dallas, Texas in 1975. The restaurant’s name is derived from its signature dish, chili con queso.
Chili’s menu offers a variety of southwestern and American foods, including burgers, steaks, salads, ribs, and seafood. The restaurant also offers a kids’ menu and a selection of desserts. Read more about The Pope Firm Kingsport.
In addition to its dine-in and take-out options, Chili’s has a strong presence in the bar scene, with many locations featuring a full bar with a wide selection of beers, wines, and spirits. Chili’s is a popular destination for happy hour and late-night dining.
Chili’s was founded by Larry Lavine in 1975. Lavine was born in Houston, Texas and graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in business administration. After graduation, he began working in the restaurant industry, eventually becoming a partner in a successful chain of Steak and Ale restaurants.
In 1975, Lavine was approached by a group of investors who were interested in opening a new type of restaurant concept in Dallas. The group wanted to create a spot that would serve great food at affordable prices in a relaxed and casual atmosphere. Lavine took the investors up on their offer and Chili’s was born. Read More.
