The chili is very good. It went great on both the burger and the fries.

The Chili Shak was a pleasant surprise. We were greeted with a welcoming smile by the owner and we were immediately given a sample of his chili. I had a chili cheeseburger and my husband had a turkey burger. Both items had very fresh looking tomatoes and lettuce on them as well as a red onion. The dark green lettuce, the nice red tomato and the red rimmed onion made the sandwiches look very appetizing. The burgers tasted as good as they looked. The chili fries were nice and hot and also tasted very good. We asked for a piece of pound cake to go and when we got home and opened our box we found that two pieces of pound cake had been given to us. You will not be disappointed.

From Our Editors

In July of 2011, Bernard Montgomery opened a chili-focused restaurant using his grandmother's recipe, a bean-less mixture deemed "best chili in Houston" by HoustonPress. After years of preparing chili in Los Angeles for family gatherings, picnics, and church outings, he relocated to Houston where he catered a football function. Urged by family, friends, and even his own boss, he started jarring batches of the chili and eventually opened his own restaurant starring the meaty mixture. Today, The Chili Shak serves up burger patties, hot dogs, burritos, and other diner favorites slathered with this prized chili. Cooks also prepare chili rice bowls paired with a side of cornbread, a meal Montgomery's grandmother used to make on cold winter days to melt the ice on the sidewalk.
