  • You might remember this iconic eatery/dive bar from Quentin Tarantinos Death Proof. Order up some hot chili and a cold beer, but dont ask for Lone Star. You wont get it here.
  • now serving migas! Never thought of eating chili and migas but I must say it was delish!
  • Since 1976, the kitchen's been serving good burgers, Tex-Mex, and, of course, chili of all varieties (XXX, veggie, Frito, etc.). Tarantino devotees will note TCP as a 'Death Proof' filming location.
  • Bring a jacket. It's a chilly parlor.
  • Tarantino's favorite spot in town. Great chili and a nice pork chop.
  • See if you can find Stuntman Mike
  • Try the chili!!
  • Quentin Tarantinos favorite Austin spot. The chili comes in X (mild) to XXX (hot) and is topped with crackers, onions, and jalapeos. Video of the best places for chili: http://wxch.nl/1JGRTS8
  • Get the habanero chili and the steak and enchilada combo. This place is an awesome dive, love it.
  • This place is freezing.
  • Try the Guacamole burger with tostada chips.
  • Legendary hole in the wall bar... try the chili the first time - get the mildest. $5 burgers on Tuesday nights - worth the price!
  • Have a problem? Follow the flow chart in the men's bathroom for help.
  • Xxx hot, habanero and sausage chili sampler.. absolutely fantastic, lethal and lava-like!!! Hello restroom!!!
  • Nachos are half price during Happy Hour!
  • This was a great lunch! The XX was a LOT spicier than I expected. Favorite was the black Bean chili (they were out of white chili). Fun place. Kids all enjoyed it.
  • Try a beer with your chili!!!
  • Got a free drink for having the A BAND APART tattoo from Tarantino films :)
  • If you're looking for a place in Austin that sells Chartreuse -- you are in luck! Happy hour food is also excellently priced.
  • Pick two with white chili and chicken enchiladas. Fritos on the side. Fantastic!
