I’ve never had one anywhere near as good anywhere near here.
I know that wasn’t the answer you were looking for…..
It’s not exactly chili, but you can get this nice bowl of corn soup, which is described as follows: “Creamy corn soup topped with fresh roasted corn, crumbled queso fresco and chile strips…4.25 / 5.95”.
All this can be yours if you drive (or walk) down to Mez. HAW HAW HAW HAW HAW!!!!
Try Bennett Pointe Grille way out Hillsborough Road. In addition to the chili the fired chicken salad, wings and fried oysters are also pretty darn good. Atmosphere is definitely casual and I think it pulls a mostly northern Durham crowd.
