THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED South 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 five locations, the Texas d├ęcor may vary slightly in its funkyness---that is, its out west ambience and trinkets---but you can count on the menu to remain the same. For some of us, their 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 four 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. Check the menu's new seasonal specialties section, too, where you might find lamb chops with pineapple-chipotle glaze. 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. In fact, their fresh lime margarita is a signature item. Then join in with the hilarity. Note: Now hoteheads can buy the grill's famous Weed Killer Hot Sauce and other retail items for use at home.
