Menu not very inspiring. Eight ingredients assembled in different ways. Service is always courteous and very pleasant. Host or hostess open and close front doors for guests. Wait staff is sometimes times too eager to bring you the refill on the soft drink. Overall, really good average food.

We were surprised that our usual orders were overly spiced this visit. The service was very good and quick.

Their new lunch combos include a cup of soup, chili or small salad and for $6, $7, or $8 a sandwich or Mexican bowl. I had the Chicken Enchilada Soup (not as spicy as the Southwest Chicken Soup) - very tasty- and the Margarita Chicken Bowl, which was excellent. You get plenty to eat for $6 - 8.

Never had a bad meal at the Chilis in Encinitas or Oceanside, so both should be considered as excellent choices. Oceanside service can be slow at times, even when they are not busy, so I don't know whether they have problems in staffing or the staff just isn't doing their job. Encinitas is always on top of their game, so... More

Usually very good but last Friday the wait staff in the bar was VERY slow and disorganized. I hope this is a isolated incident.

Friendly service with reasonable prices and menu variety make this a popular eating place especially for young people. My wife and I visited on a Monday at 7 pm and the place was full. The only negative was that the beverage list did not mention prices, thus if you ordered a glass of chardonnay they could charge you anything they... More

My wife and I visited Chili's the other night. We go there fairly regularly for a good meal at a very reasonable price. Where else can you get an excellent ribeye steak for $17? The serving staff is always courteous and friendly, the food and drinks arrive promptly. The food is good quality and the overall experience is over and... More

We stayed in Del Mar while visiting sites around the area and found it hard to find any nearby restaurants. My husband loves Chili's and I'm not real picky about where we eat so we ended up (2 nights in a row) driving the 10 miles to Encinitas for dinner at Chili's. Great food, consistent with the exceptional quality we... More

We frequently call & order take out and the service is excellent. This restaurant is comparable to Islands which is nearby and we go back and forth between the two restaurants.
