$8 for $16 Worth of Chili, Burgers, and Wings
The menu features 10 types of chili, with spice levels ranging from mild to hot. Classic red chili mixes ground beef with dried chilies, whereas the Cuban stew tops pork and black beans with lime and sour cream. Sample spoonfuls in cups ($3 for one) or bowls ($4.50 for 10 oz.; $8.50 for 20 oz.). The chefs also prep burgers and baked or fried wings.
For some people, the colors of red, green, and white evoke Christmastime. For regulars of Anaheim Chili, though, they just mean lunch. The red, green, and white chilies are but 3 of 10 different kinds on the menu, which lists each stew's baseball-card-like stats: base, spice, garnishes, and heat. The bases range from the home-style chili's ground beef and kidney beans to the pesole's dark-meat chicken and hominy. Toppings may include onion, cilantro, and sour cream. The large selection begs for mixing and matching—thankfully, you can order a triple cup meal and dip your spoon into three different kinds of chili during a single meal.
Balancing out the restaurant's specialty bowls is a host of appetizers and burgers, as well as baked or fried chicken wings. Mindful of its obsession with heat, the menu features a seasonal watermelon salad, whose mixture of fruit and mint counteracts fiery bites better than chili served a la mode. Draft and bottled beers also cool down taste buds with sips of Blue Pants Brewery and Straight to Ale.
