Dinner last night at Hard Times Cafe as our final week of packing continues and D (for Departure) Day approaches.
Hard Times is a local success story. It started as a chili parlor in Alexandria just about the time we came to Washington 23 years ago. A simple restaurant that served two kinds of chili (Texas and Cincinnatti) and onion rings. Now they’re a chain of restaurants and the menu has grown to include not only the two original chilis but veggie, Terlingua Red, hamburgers, salads, deserts and even a dinner menu.
