Tolbert's has become the place to go on Friday and Saturday nights in Grapevine. They have some great cover bands and a great crowd.

I used to only go there for lunch and didn't even know much about their weekend crowds until recently. At about 9 or 10pm on weekends, the band starts playing and people start dancing.

Basically it seems like they rotate through popular cover bands from a Tom Petty cover band to an Eagles cover band to a Beatles cover band, etc. It is lots of fun.

Pros: Great cover bands, great location and good food

Tolberts is an great restaurant. Their chili is definitely what they are famous for even though I would argue some of their other food is equally as good. Their sour cream enchiladas, their tortilla soup, the nachos and their jalapeno poppers are some other favorites.
The restaurant really is the whole package, starting with the area. Historic Main Street in Grapevine is a really unique area. I would describe it as a true and natural town center as opposed to all of the fake generic town centers popping up around the metroplex. Definitely a lot of history on the street and in the buildings and Tolberts is a perfect fit for the type of restaurant to be located there. I could rave more about the restaurant, but I would just say try it and you will be impressed.

Pros: Good atmosphere, Great location, Amazing Chili

Cons: There can be a decent wait for a table on weekend nights

This place makes you feel right at home, like being in your mom's dining room. The food is consistantly great.

Good ambiance and nice people. I particularly like their tortilla soup. Most people love their chili but I am not a chili person, so I have not tried it. Their jalapeno poppers, and burgers are really good. If you are window shopping on historic Main and never been, you should definitely give Tolberts a shot.

This place has quickly become one of my favorite restaurants.

The food is good, consistent quality, awesome chili, but I wouldn't say that is the reason to go there. The wait staff has been nice, courteous and responsive, but I wouldn't say that is the reason to go there either. I would say the reason to go to Tolbert?s is that it is different, an authentic feel in a city metro area in need of authenticity. The Historic Main Street Grapevine area has the great feel that the outdoor malls try to replicate but it has 100 years of history behind it.

I would definitely recommend Tolbert?s and I would recommend leaving a little time to window shop the unique area around it as well.

As far as recommendations, the chili is what they are most famous for, so give it a try. It goes really well with a cold beer.

Pros: Ambiance, Service

Cons: Busy to get into during Grapefest and Main Street Days

Tolbert's in Grapevine definitely has the best sour cream green enchiladas that I've ever had! They grill and lightly season the chicken, and it's not that shredded stuff, either. (They cut it up into small chunks, which gives it even more flavor!) The verde sauce they use has just enough of a spicy tang to it to be delicious without being overwhelming. This is not the usual, ho-hum Tex-Mex that you would get at the chains around here. No, Tolbert's is reminiscent of Southwestern cuisine that you would find in Santa Fe or Albuquerque.

Also, our server was very courteous and attentive. On top of all that, the atmosphere has a relaxed, down-home feel.

I thought the chili had a great taste and just the right hint of hotness so I would definitely say try it, you can't go wrong! I always find something great on the menu. Good stuff!

The Terlingua Chili burger is excellent! Had a Black Shiner with this burger and it was out of sight. The chili has some great mild chili pepper heat and the flavor was delicious. Fresh cut onions and melted cheese increased my motivation to inhale this burger. Service was great too. TRY IT!

Pros: Great food, great location in historic Grapevine

A fun restaurant with a capability to handle a group. If you break out the restaurant as a specific type, I rate this restaurant almost 9 out of 10. This "casual relaxed atmosphere" restaurant is located in the historic area of Grapevine with a lot of activities surrounding it. Sometimes the restaurant has music. My restaurant contact for the restaurant was outstanding. Just be sure to contact them before hand with a larger group. I have found that lots of locals are now visiting the restaurant. The restaurant can handle all ages. I found that there was modest pricing on most the menu items.

Service at the restaurant was outstanding. You can order a delicious salad for those wanting to watch their weight. Their signature item is a delicious bowl of red chili (chili con carne). There could be more variety of foods. If you are weight watching or on a restrictive diet, you have to be very careful of what you order.

Remember you are in the cultural and activity part of Grapevine. A lot of people are walking in this area of town. Also, during community events this area may be cordoned off to automobiles. Just be prepared that you may have to walk to the restaurant from your parking spot.
