Average Lunch

I am not impressed by the chains and this Chili's was like all the franchises - Average. I really don't have an affinity for one restaurant chain over the other and I saw nothing extremely good or extremely bad.

A group of us at work come here every other Thursday and have become regulars. It's nice when you are greeted like a friend and not just a paying customer. We've even had servers come and say hi to us even if they are not helping our table. Great food, great people!

We always enjoy Chili's, and this one is no exception. Food is good and service is always great. My favorite is the sour cream chicken enchiladas. Everything on the menu that I've tried is good. We also appreciate the ability to give us a large table when we are there in large groups. It is a little higher priced than... More

If you order takeout, expect to be served burnt food. See my picture posted as proof. When you call to complain they won't call back or deal with you in any way. I recommend any other restaurant.

Chili's food was great with everyone liking their meal and feeling like the selection was perfect. We went on a Saturday evening and were in about 4:30 pm. Felt like we got caught in a shift change because while we got seated pretty quick, the wait for drinks and to place our order was rather long - 10-15 minutes. Food... More

It's a Chilli's....what can I say. The food was what you always expect from a Chilli's. It was good. They do have REALLY good margaritas though. The problem was we had to hunt down our waitress not once or twice but at least three times. Yeah....it was a Friday night but when all four of us have to ask a... More

Dined with a group from work. Margaritas were tasty, chips and salsa was bland AND COST $5.00? My entree was the shrimp tacos, the shrimp was pretty tasteless, the slaw was good,and sauce was good. Overall I probably would order something else.. Service was quick, and friendly. The food was just average.

Food was great, as always. Margaritas were OK as the machine was broken. Something becoming very common in Chilli's. Why is this?

I had the bigmouth bites for the first time and they were great. Never do have enough room for dessert but the meal was delicious. the service did lack some but that was the individual and not the fault of Chillis. will have them again.
