This funky, art-driven café specializes in all matter of spicy brews, or, as they like to call them: "Hot pots o' soul." The star here, no surprise, is chili, made from hand-chopped meats, fresh chiles, and proprietary spice blends. Varieties include Texas beef, chicken verde, spicy vegan, and white-hot pork. Chili also finds its way onto kick-ass chili dogs, Sloppy Joes, and nachos grande. Other items include tacos, chicken wraps, gazpacho and milkshakes.
Tucked inside a former gas station, this charming little pit stop offers friendly service, retro-style decor, and a long list of out-of-the-ordinary soups and panini-style sandwiches. Current faves include the zesty Big Mensch, with hot pastrami, spicy coleslaw, and chipotle mayo; and the spicy tomato-blue cheese bisque, guaranteed to bring sweat to your brow and a smile to your lips.
