When Chiliâ€™s Grill & Bar started operations way back in 1975 in Texas, USA, they did so with just 11 dishes & drinks whose popularity grew to such an extent that the brand managed to carve the initial footprints in the casual dining space of the country and subsequently the international market. Starting 15th July 2014, Chiliâ€™s Grill & Bar bought back the original lipsmackers in the form of a Limited Time Offer (LTO) across all their outlets in Bangalore (Orion & Phoenix Market city), Mumbai, Pune & Hyderabad. I was lucky to be part of the bloggers table which happened there to taste these items on the menu.
My favorite on the original Chili’s menu was the Chili’s Pie which is made with buffalo meat and contains chili, cheese, onion, tostada chips, home made pico de gallo and jalapenos). I could taste a part of history which was being made way back in 1975 when Chili’s was just finding it’s feet on the ground!
Looking at the regular menu, I ordered the trademark non-vegetarian appetizer called “Wings over Buffalo”. This was Chicken drumettes and winglets tossed in tangy & spicy Buffalo wing sauce. It is served with cool ranch dressing. I loved the spiciness of these Wings which was quite similar to what we have in South India!
