Chili's Redeemed

Stopped going to Chili's a few years ago because they made changes to their menu that I didn't care for. Became a regular at On The Border. When OTB suddenly closed, my friends and I were forced to go back to Chili's for happy hours. We were pleasantly surprised. The guacamole was better than... read more

When I mentioned this restaurant I am sure that you already have a preconceived notion of what it is… And I do too. It is moderate in every way. Nothing bad and nothing too good. It is fresh but not particularly flavorful. It is a pleasant and clean place and yet not particularly hospitable or welcoming. It gets a little... More

I was craving something familiar and comfortable while traveling in Southern California so I sought out this Chili's. Not sure i would have found it without my GPS. Service was pretty slow to start but once they acknowledged me, things were good. I had a Buffalo chicken salad which was heavy on the Buffalo chicken, bacon, and light on the... More

This place has amazing food, with many options. We always get the Tableside Queso for appetizer, and the burgers are yummy! Totally recommend this place.

Stopped in here last week for first time a while. Staff here is always friendly. We usually sit at the bar area and noticed they now have tablets at the tables and at the bar. Certainly different but it's a nice touch, you can view a little bit more information about the menu and there are other features as well.... More

Over all the experience was a good one. Drinks were good, and the appetizers are of a good variety and priced right.

I've always loved Chili's, but this one needs a redo on food and service! In the bar, we waited at least 15 minutes before we placed our order on a NOT busy Thursday night. And once the server did come over, he was so quick about our service, like he had someplace to be. He and one of the bartenders... More

Who exactly are we kidding? To give this establishment 4 Stars, or more, is ludicrous! Yes, it is a national chain, but what does that mean? That is a guarantee hit? Please! Have you tasted the latest Papa John's (sucks) or Pizza Hut (as bad)? National chain does not mean diddley, unless the kitchen knows how to put out a... More

The food is quite tasty at this restaurant and they have good specials. I've tried many of their menu items. (Potato soup is delicious) I've eaten here several times and lately the last few times it seems as if the server is absent and the wait for your food (over 30 minutes tonight) Just for a burger and fries.

This Chilis is across the street from us. When we're hungry and don't have time for cooking or just lazy, we eat here, or order online to pick-up. Can't beat their dinner for 2 for $20.
