Restaurant chain with a Tex-Mex theme and huge portions

Time Out Says

From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2008

Do yourself a favour and don’t order a healthy option – it’s the heart-clogging, inexplicably greasy meals that put this chain on the map. First off, try to ignore the screaming children. It’s hard work, but with a little yoga training you can drown out the pests’ cries for attention.

Secondly, don’t hold back when ordering; while a main portion is big enough to feed yourself and your entire extended family, you won’t get the Chili’s effect if you order just one dish. Start your feast with a plate of classic nachos topped with chilli beans and cheese, served with sour cream, salsa and (for an extra Dhs5) guacamole.

For mains, try the Texas fries – lovingly called ‘a Texan cardiac arrest’ – an astonishingly large portion of French fries topped with chilli, cheese and beef bacon; or try the vegetarian quesadilla, an equally heavy but immorally delicious portion of Tex-Mex goodness served with lacklustre Mexican rice and a hearty side of beans.

End your gorge-fest with the aptly named ‘paradise pie’, which is an amalgamation of everything a greedy American kid wants (brownie, ice-cream and chocolate). In short, it’s a screamer of a dessert and you’ll be thanking your inner brat for egging you on.
