    Don't Pass It By!

    I started eating at The Chili King in the mid 1950's. It was one of my Grandfather's favorite places. My Grandmother used call it a "Greasy-Spoon". Well, maybe ... but the chili is still the best you'll find. I haven't lived in DSM for decades but still make it to the Chili King every time I'm in town. And, yes, it hasn't changed much since the 50's. -WG Van Dyck
