2230Hard Times Chili TruckAntique Vehicles4Has been participating for more than 30 years. Originally a mannequin at a saddle store, the fiberglass horse you can see outside Hard Times on evenings and weekends is a local landmark, even attracting good-natured vandalism in the form of an equine “knit-bombing” that left the statue feeling a little cozier. It stands in the bed of a 1941 Chevy truck Fred bought on the way back from a chili cook-off not long after the restaurant opened, and a Betsy Ross flag flies over it. Since then, the horse has starred in the George Washington Birthday Parade (surrounded by 10- year-old Secret Service agents); the St. Patrick’s Day Parade (a horn turns the horse into a unicorn with a “leprechaun” rider); the Scottish Christmas Walk Parade (with a blinking red nose and antlers) and Alexandria’s Halloween scene with a headless rider. Hard Times’ Texas Chili recipe comes down to Fred from his grandfather, a trail-driving cowboy in Oklahoma in the 1890s. Fred’s Aunt Irma preserved the recipe and passed it on to her nephews; the original copy in Irma’s handwriting lives in a safety deposit box. Fred’s other recipes are the result of research, experimentation and competition chili cooking, which Jim excelled at. When I ask Fred if he has a favorite chili, he says, “Texas Chili—it’s family.” Some menu items, however, like the chili taters, Frito chili pie and Chili Bubba (two pieces of cornbread smothered with two types of chili), were not inherited—they’re just strokes of genius.1
