Frankie's Little Europe---in the Casa Linda shopping center. Go there, and then head down Garland Road to the Chilully exhibit at the arboretum.
Stoneleigh P---pub across the street from The Stoneleigh Hotel. Near downtown.
And altho it's a local chain, I also enjoy Cafe Brazil. Lots to enjoy there.
I also like Frankie's in Richardson (related to Amigos), a quaint little Mexican restaurant. Oh, but don't even think of trying to get in for Dinner on Friday night at 7:00 without waiting for an hour to get seated, especially if you are taking your GF, OMG!!! She will never stop complaining!

Some "chains" stay somewhat local. Gloria's comes to mind. On the Border has been bought out at least twice that I know of and is now worldwide. Now it's mediocre at best. Same thing happened with Chili's. In the 70s Chili's was great. Now I'd rank it right about with Applebees.

Terlingua Pride! The day that disappeared from the menu, Chili's was gone. You could still order it off- menu back in the 90s. Not sure what would happen if you tried now.

What was on the Terlingua Pride? It says "everything in the kitchen." From the menu above, I surmise burger, cheese, chili, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, hot sauce, and tortilla chips?

I've been told I have a big mouth, but I could never fit that concoction in!!

But there are two other chili burgers on the menu - what makes this one different?

Chili, cheese, all the fixings, and mustard is what I remember. I absolutely had to use a knife and fork for that one!

I don't think they had jalapenos back then - no nachos...I think that was one of the first things they added to the 'new' menu.
