    Can't read the article unless you're a subscriber to the San Antonio Express-News.  I think the caption underneath the photo sums up the dire situation, though.
     
    "Staff will warn you ahead of time that the Bombay [Bicycle Club] chili is spicy..."
     
    If a national chain, not especially known for their chili, is the lead reference in an article bemoaning the lack of credible Chili Joints in San Antonio (the city that made Chili famous, according to the headline), that pretty much tells you all you need to know.

    Bombay Bicycle Club still exists? I never would have guessed.

    There used to be one in Columbus, but I think it shut down back in the '80s.

    I managed to read the entire article by looking up the text that was shown on Google and then going to it from the Google page.
    http://www.expressnews.com/food/restaurants/article/Where-s-the-chili-Not-many-places-in-S-A-10837343.php
     
    Same link, as far as I can tell, but there was no paywall.

    Funny, this one is paywalled for me and the other one is not.

    Well I subscribe to the paper  but haven't tried to sign up for any digital issues. You can also go to MYSA.com to see if you can read the article. In any case, I think Alamo Cafe and maybe a few other places have it around here. Most of the mexican places I eat at don't serve chili as a stand alone dish. There is a place in New Braunfels  in an old saloon building downtown some place that i believe serves chili.It was on the Travel Channel when they did some  tour of chili places.Can't for the life of me remember the name of it.
    Yes, Bombay Bicycle Club is still on St. Mary's Street.In all the years I've lived here never ate there.Always figured it was a bar.Same goes for Good Time Charlie's on Broadway down from the remodeled Witte Museum.However Good Time Charlie's is a real restaurant.Next time I go to the SA Botanical Garden or the Zoo, will have to eat there.
