The Texas Chili Parlor - Austin, TX


#1

My friends and I went up to Austin last night and we had to go to Guero’s and the Texas Chili Parlor. The pics of Guero’s are on my friend’s camera, and she didn’t bring her usb cable, but I have a few of the Chili Parlor on my camera.



There’s not really a jukebox there. And there is no back door that leads out to an awesome porch. The back door they go through to the outside is actually a door to a kitchen.



Other than that, and the fact they moved a few pictures around, it’s exactly the same.





















We are sitting in the same spot the girls sat at.













And here’s one of the Alamo Draftouse in the villiage for no reason. We went and saw the Rocky Horror Picture Show live there at midnight.

Awesome stuff! 8)


#3

Too cool! ;D

Here is Guero’s. Where Jungle Julia, Shana, and butterfly/Arlene go at the beginning of the film for margarita’s and mexican food. I had to take it candidly, so it’s shite.





Here is outside Guero’s, where Butterfly sees Stuntman Mike’s car for the first time.





Here is the bridge the girls were driving on while they were discussing where to score some weed.





and this is just under that bridge. Like a million bats live under there, and they all fly out at dusk. So cool.

and one more outside the Texas Chili Parlor.

Wow, awesome! Thanks for sharing. 8)

Thanks. Here’s me kissing Kev at Guero’s. Forgot about his one. I swear, it’s the last one. For now.

Awesome. I didn’t remember there being two bars in the first half of the film… I swear you only see the inside of one…


#9

At the very beginning, Shanna says, “So what’s the plan?” and then JJ says “Margaritas and mexican food at Guero’s. Did you call Rafael and tell him we’re coming?”



Then Arlene is standing outside Guero’s smoking the rest of Julia’s cigarette, and see’s Stuntman Mike’s car. Then they are inside Guero’s, and they meet Julia’s friend Marcy, “who is an incredible actress”, and she acts out that whole “Excuse me, but your name wouldn’t happen to be Butterfly, would it?”.



Guero’s is a restaurant though, not a bar. It’s just called Guero’s Taco Bar.

Isn’t it that bar that hey meet Mike? Or is that Cuilli Parlur? I am getting very confused lol. Maybe its cos in my memory I am thinking of the cut down version?

Gueros is the first place they go where they do the whole Arlene/Barry conversation. The Texas Chili Parlor is where they meet Mike.

Do you remember Stuntman Mike, in his car, watching the girls coming out of Guero’s, and laughing as Shana fell on her ass off the steps? They go to the Chili Parlor straight after that.

Oh crap yeah. I see. Sorry for the mix-up.

Took a pic of the outside of Guero’s today. I figured I’d post 'em here.







This is across the street. A better pic of that Home Slice that Stuntman Mike is parked in front of when he’s watching the girls come out of Guero’s.

of course not, in the movie that was Quentin’s own AMI


#17

Also I dont know if people already know this but the scenes inside Gueros were shot at Troublemaker Studios. Theres no Mexican movie posters on the walls of that place. QT made Guero’s up the way he wished it looked. The same with The Texas Chili Parlor backporch/parking lot. There is no backporch/parking lot there.


#18

Yeah, I know that was QT’s jukebox… I’m saying that there isn’t a jukebox there at all. And I also knew they didn’t film inside Guero’s. I just love that place though. AWESOME NACHOS!
