Austin Grill Restaurant Review

: Texans know a thing or two about good flavorful foods, and the Austin Grill chefs bring the wide, open flavors of that state to the Washington area. In its multiple locations, the restaurant’s Texas décor may vary slightly in its funkiness --- that is, its out-west ambience and trinkets. But you can count on the menu to remain the same. For some of us, the chili --- a bowl of simmered, shredded beef with ground ancho and chipotle chilies --- is the best in town. It's fire-breathing hot and served with fresh flour tortillas. But chili is only one of the many delights on the menu: fajitas, enchiladas, burritos, carnitas and quesadillas, plus a selection of gluten-free eats, all make dynamic meals. If you need to quench your thirst because of all the hot, spicy fare, select a cooling tequila drink (there are several interesting margaritas) or a chilled brew.
