Chili's was founded in 1975 after owner Larry Lavine converted a former Dallas postal station into the original burger joint. Since then, Chili's all over the world have spread the original restaurant's quirky sense of humor, emphasis on hospitality, and flavorful fare. They even uphold traditions such as flipping a framed photo upside down, imprinting the saltillo tile floor with dog-paw prints, and staying open during Tell Your Coworker A Lie Day. Chili's menu has a wide selection of Southwestern eats and drinks, including fajitas, quesadillas, and several flavors of margarita, as well as classic American fare such as burgers and baby back ribs slow-smoked and slathered in barbecue sauce. Committed to using its resources to help those in need, Chili's has partnered with St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital and raised more than $30 million for the hospital in the past four years.
