Attentive staff

We were last there with three kids under 5. Manager came by twice to see if we needed anything and that we were well taken care of.

I like to go here knowing each chain is basically the same. I always know what to expect. My fav thing here is the fajitas. It's the only thing I order. They need to change up their food and do something new. I hardly ever go anymore...

The novelty of this chain wore off long long ago. This is essentially Denny's with a a different logo. In fact, Denny's probably has more variety and freshly prepared food than Chilis. However, they have a bar, and still popular with large groups looking for cheap eats.

My wife and I went to Chilis for a relaxing mid-week meal. We sat in the bar are where the atmosphere is a bit more active. They had at least 7 television screens going two baseball games and the basketball playoffs. It was nice having a drinking and watching the games without the sound being overbearing. Chilis menu is big,... More

I've been going to Chili's restaurants for years - and this one is one of the better ones. The decor is updated and enjoyable, the service was excellent. The food has been updated recently to modern tastes and reasonably sized (not overly large) portions. Prices typical. Flavorful options. The place was busy for a Saturday evening but the service didn't... More

Service is good and fast. Food is typical American diner with choices for everyone. I liked the tablet feature in everytable so you can pay whenever you are done. Also, and particularly good for large groups, you can split your check easily which is great for expense reporting.

Went there lunch time to celebrate my birthday. The other table had the staff singing happy birthday but no such experience for me. Our server just gave me an ice cream and greeted me a happy birthday. I ordered the unlimited salad and soup. The soup was good but the salad gave me the runs. The salad was not fresh,... More

Love the ToGo service right by our hotel! and the were open and not crowded when we needed food. Quesadillas were good, and they made sure they remembered the salsa and guac and sour cream on the side

Chili' sis usually pretty good- not this one. The salad was obviously pre made and sat for a while. The cucumbers were slimy. The shrimp tacos were flavorless... The rice and beans were poor quality , not like the Chili's norm. Sad I think this area relies on travelers, and I am here often. Not many good places here. Go... More
