Chili can be red, white or green, and made with beef, turkey, bison or no meat at all. However you prefer it, you likely have a favorite place to grab a bowl when you don’t feel like cooking up a pot.
The results of last week’s Best of Atlanta poll are in, and here are the places you voted as having the best chili in metro Atlanta.
For each stop of Oprah Winfrey’s 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus tour, WW (Weight Watchers Reimagined) collaborated with restaurants to create “WW Favorite” dishes that fit a healthy lifestyle. Mitchell Anderson’s “Mitchili,” or turkey chili, was one of the dishes picked in Atlanta.
Tied for fourth place: vegan chili at Delia’s Chicken Sausage Stand and Original Chili at Rocco’s Pub.
Rocco’s, according to AJC contributor Bob Townsend, “is all about chili. Winner of numerous chili cook-off competitions, it's served up by the cup, bowl or super bowl, with or without beans, layered on corn chips for chili pie and ladled on pasta for chili mac.”
My Dad’s Turkey Chili is “a marriage of beans, peppers, brown sugar and other ingredients that deliver the perfect combination of sweet and heat,” Becca Godwin wrote in January.
Finishing second: Texas Style Chili at Grindhouse Killer Burgers. Grindhouse’s chili is filled with brisket, ground beef and chorizo.
And the 2020 winner of best chili in metro Atlanta is … brisket chili at Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q.
The best reviewed restaurant in Georgia last year, Fox Bros.’ brisket chili is listed under “sides” on its menu. But after having a cup, you might want to buy a pint, which is only $9.
