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 Texas to the Washington area. In its multiple locations, the 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 terrific chili is only one of the many delights on this restaurant's menu: fajitas, enchiladas, burritos, carnitas and quesadillas, plus a selection of gluten-free eats, all make dynamic meals here. If you need to quench your thirst with all this hot, spicy food, select a cooling tequila drink---there are several interesting margaritas---or a chilled brew.
