Vienna Inn Celebrating National Chili Day With Deals, Early Lunch

Today (Feb. 27) is National Chili Day, and the Vienna Inn has several reasons to celebrate.

The locally owned business, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, opened at 6:30 a.m. this morning and will serve chili and chili dogs all day long — including for breakfast, according to Nancy Green, the eatery’s spokesperson.

For people over the age of 21 who want to enjoy a beer, the eatery will also have deals on all domestic bottles until 9 p.m., Green said.

Though it is unclear when National Chili Day began, chili originated as a Spanish dish served with meat and has been the state food of Texas since 1977. Sausages are one of the world’s oldest processed foods, according to Newsweek, and can be traced back to the 9th century B.C.

The event today is the latest of several celebrations in February where the Vienna Inn invited people to support the local business and socialize with other community members.

As always, the eatery will also be serving a variety of other chili-based foods, such as chili macs, chili bowls and chili cheese fries.
