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 at picnic tables. The chilis range from traditional Texas Red (all beef, no beans) to alternative (turkey and white bean). They’re all good, and served either straight-up or, ingeniously, ladled over your choice of white cheddar grits or jalapeño mac ’n’ cheese.
