I'd guess it serves 6 to 8... depending on how hungry and what else is served with it. More beans would make it more beany. Some folks feel that beans shouldn't be in chile.

Reporting them is easy and I feel a valid part of participating in Yelp community. But if one wants to just watch from the sidelines then they need to realize that your...
Unfortunately there is sometimes a difference between "standard operating procedure" and "best practice". Especially when different folks are evaluating which is which. I hate the early dish clearing process but even many fine dining establishments do it. As a SLOW eater I'm always feeling rushed.
