“I want my baby back, baby back, baby back ribs, CHIL-I’S BABY BACK RIBS.”
You’re welcome for getting that jingle stuck in your head.
That commercial came out years ago and it’s still the jingle I hear whenever I hear the name Chili’s.Click To Tweet
We’ve discovered that Chili’s has a Allergen/Vegetarian menu on their website. It’s very conveniently divided by allergen horizontally & menu items vertically. It’s further divided by menu items such as meals, sides, salads, and appetizers. It’s very easy to follow and clear which menu items contain which allergens. At the bottom of the last page, it does state possible cross-contact risk as fried items are cooked in the same fryers as regular menu items. The statement goes on to say: “Though we have highlighted fried items which are at increased risk for cross- contact with other ingredients (allergens and meat), normal kitchen operations involve shared cooking equipment and preparation areas– contributing to the possiblity of foods coming into contact with other foods. Due to these **VEGETARIAN (V) denotes items that DO NOT contain beef, pork, poultry, fish, shellfish or ingredients derived from animals (e.g. gelatin, chicken broth, animal rennet) but may contain eggs or milk . Note: Several of Chili’s cheeses are not marked as vegetarian due to the use of animal rennet.”
Since finding out about the wide array of dietary restriction friendly menu options at Chili’s, we’ve ordered from them several times. They do not offer a gluten-free bun option, though they offer grass fed, turkey, and black bean patties. Nikki has tried the grass fed patty (no bun, but with lettuce). Her usual order is the half rack of Original BBQ Ribs (FYI: the house sauce contains soy) and fries. Nikki was a fan of both the burger and ribs and really likes the fries.
You know the drill…Scroll on by if you don’t want to see #foodporn you can’t have.
Because of the sweet two-for-$20 offer, I often order the bacon burger with cheese and fries. BTW, their tortilla chips are yummy (this deal comes with an appetizer)!
