Friday night visit

Friday night was busy but the hosts were attentive and friendly. We didn't have to wait long for a booth. Tonight we tried the two dinners and one appetizer for $20. We opted for the guacamole salsa and chips for an appetizer and it was good. Chips are extremely thin though. My husband got the... read more

Chili's and all these American food chains like TGIFridays, Chilis, Applebees are just gross. I'd recommend anywhere else.

The food taste and quality is good, but the service took like forever. the waitress took a long time to come to the table to take the order and the order took an enormously long time to get to the table.

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

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 before - got rid of 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
