Tolbert’s in Downtown Grapevine Review

We can say we are definitely in love with their motto –

  • Hot Chili
  • Cold Beer
  • Live Music

Those three things are simple and easy to love. 

Tolbert's Bar Area

We visited Tolbert’s yesterday for lunch.  The atmosphere is fantastic.  Tolbert’s is located in the center of downtown Grapevine along Main Street.  You walk in and are greeted by friendly staff.  The first thing you notice is the huge bar along the left side of the restaurant.  And in the back there is a nice sized stage for the live music that is played nightly.

The chili is some of the best we’ve ever had.  It is worth a stop in just for that, and well, maybe an ice cold beer to go with it.  Tolbert’s was opened by one of the original founders of the famous Terlingua Chili CookOff held in November every year in the Big Bend area of Texas.

The Tolbert’s website calls their food Southwestern Cuisine.  We’d agree with that since you can get anything from burgers to enchiladas to the Grapevine Ribeye (which we will definitely go back and try).

On this visit we sampled the combination beef and chicken nachos which were excellent and the Guacamole Burger which was also very good.

The people are friendly.  The pace is nice and relaxed.  This really is a must stop restaurant for visitors to Grapevine and residents who happen into the downtown area as well.

We absolutely loved it and can not wait to get back and take in some of the live music.

The Stage

Last night, we went to bed with these thoughts running through our head –

  • Hot Chili
  • Cold Beer
  • Live Music

It really doesn’t get any better.
