|Jalapeno cheddar cornbread|
As I've said in previous reviews, I'm not a big cornbread lover. However, the jalapeno cheddar cornbread here was spot-on delicious. Unlike cornbread I've had in the past -- just dry and unappetizing -- this one had some moisture. The browned cheese atop the cornbread and the diced jalapenos inside imparted mellow, enjoyable flavors.
Although I also had an array of hot sauces to choose from, I didn't need any, much to my surprise (in a good way). But if you want hot sauce, they got you covered.
In the mood for a hamburger ($4.50), cheeseburger ($4.75), or a hot dog ($4.00)? Or a chili cheeseburger or chili dog ($5.75 each)? Yup, they got those as well. Chili Inside, Chili Outside has vegetarian options with veggie burgers ($6.75), salads ($3.00 small; $5.00 large), fries ($1.50), and their jalapeno cheddar cornbread ($1.25).
Chili Inside, Chili Outside has an outstanding product, and their sales should only increase with the impending chilly weather. I urge you all to check this food cart out as soon as possible! 9/10
