Celebrating 30 years serving an official judge at International Championship Chili Cookoff, it’s fair to say no one in the Valley takes his chili as seriously as Steve Freidkin, the owner/chef at TEXAZ Grill. Not only has he been simmering his own authentic, from-scratch TEXAZ Red Chili since 1985, but this Nov. 5 he will serve as an official judge at the world-famous annual chili cook-off “Behind the Store” in Terlingua, Texas, which is celebrating its golden anniversary as the world’s top chili cook-off.

In anticipation of this international chili throw-down, TEXAZ Grill, 6003 N. 16th St., is offering all-you-can-eat TEXAZ Red Chili for just $7.50 on Saturday, Nov. 5, from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. (no sharing, to-go or doggie bags). It’s as close as you can come to chili nirvana without actually road-tripping 14 hours to west Texas to attend this famed cook-off.
