Slim's has a great country-time roadhouse vibe; in summertime, bands play on the bed of an old Ford F-600 in the big backyard while happy people lounge ruddily at picnic tables, sweating over bowls of liquid meat then cooling down with pitchers of beer. The chilis range from traditional (Texas Red: "traditional all-meat chili made with certified Angus beef") to alternative (turkey and white bean: "ground turkey, white beans, and serrano chilies simmered in a hearty broth"). They're all good, and served either straight-up or, ingeniously, ladled over your choice of white cheddar grits or jalapeño mac 'n' cheese.
