When someone's getting all up in your grill, the best thing to say is "You better step off! The surface temperature of grills can approach 550 degrees Fahrenheit—you shouldn't be standing on that thing!" Today's deal demonstrates a high regard for safety by leaving the grilling to the professionals: for $7, you get $15 worth of chili, ribs, hot dogs, drinks, and other grilled eats at SmokeHouse Chili Grill, located on North Avenue in New Rochelle.
Chili is in SmokeHouse's name for a reason: it’s the centerpiece of this sporty grill's collection of culinary delights. Winner of Westchester Magazine's Best Chili award for 2008, each bubbling bowl ($5.25 regular, $6.25 bread bowl) is packed with ground beef, sweet Italian sausage, crisp bacon, and an array of secret spices and seasonings, all topped with a blend of shredded monterrey jack, yellow cheddar, and a dollop of sour cream. SmokeHouse's craftsmen keep their award-winning masterpiece on its toes by creating a new concoction every week to compete in a chili-based Thunderdome presided by a panel of post-apocalyptic chefs. The restaurant’s menu is also chock-full of other game-time bites to munch on during Yankees or Jets matchups, such as buffalo wings, hearty burgers, soups, salads, sandwiches, wraps, and more.
Westchester Magazine named SmokeHouse Chili Grill as the area’s Best Chili in 2008:
- We've waited on that line for Smokehouse Chili Grill's flavor-packed, thick, bubbling chili, too. Made with ground beef, sweet Italian sausage, crisp bacon, a slew of spices, and topped with a blend of shredded Monterrey Jack and yellow cheddar and a dollop of sour cream, it's a heady, hearty, and cheap ($5) meal. And if you ever tire of it (though that's highly unlikely), not to worry. Smokehouse co-owners Michael Hofer and Justin Zeytoonian offer a different chili each week to try. ¬– Westchester Magazine
