Turkish Baths and Burgers Texas-style

Dallas-based bar and grill opens in Istanbul

Chili's may have shuttered a location or two in North Texas, but their global growth continues with a new restaurant opening in  Turkey.

The opening of the Istanbul Chili's Bar and Grill marks the 194th time Brinker has opened a franchise outside of the U.S.

This is the first Chili's to open in Turkey with plans to build four more over the next five years.

"Brinker is extremely excited about bringing the Chili's brand into Turkey. This milestone exemplifies our commitment to serving the world a great taste of life as we expand our presence across the globe," said John Real, president of Global Business Development for Brinker International.

No word if the menu will have a local flair, we're hoping to hear back from Brinker's pr folks soon.

Dallas-based Brinker owns Chili's, On The Border and  Maggiano's and owns or franchises more than 1,700 restaurants in 27 countries.
