The chefs at The Chili Shak call upon the family recipe book, stirring up robust batches of chili to slather over burgers and fries. Chili blankets burgers ($5), which arrive at tables in beef or turkey incarnations, bolstered by similarly smothered portions of fries, which can be used to duel with during food fights. Chili bowls may be ordered with cornbread and a drink ($6.50) or a la carte ($4.50), and grilled chicken or steak salads offer a lighter alternative ($4.50). Soft drinks wait in the wings to wash down spicy flavors and chili-covered fingertips.

The Chili Shak

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.
