OK family restaurant

Many choices, standard food and moderate prices. Good choice for that style of restaurant. Very noisy.

Late night snack trip when staying at Courtyard down street. Friendly staff. Fun games at table. Easy to walk to from hotel, and great hours.

The food and service at the restaurant were good, but they need to update and clean the facility. The booth we sat in had a lot of tape being used to repair tears in the vinyl. The overall cleanliness of the place needed to be improved.

Ordered take out. Normally very good but the last to times food was subpar!!! Makes us sad since we order take out at least twice a month. This is the 2nd time the food was not right. The the bag of chips we ordered were half full and the meals were much smaller. It might be time to move on!!!

Staff were pleasant food was good and once ordered it was served within a reasonable time. The only problem was getting a table. They were very busy but they were not clearing the tables fast enough and as a result you had a 20 minute wait just to sit down.

Visited on two occasions: a very busy Saturday and Sunday night. Both visits it was very busy, but the receptionist was calm and friendly despite a huge queue and explained the wait. The food and drinks were served in a reasonable time, and despite some demanding customers nearby, the staff remained polite and helpful. The menu offered a good selection,... More

Way over salted fried pickles Way over salted tortilla chips Mediocre nachos Queso dip is basically beans and red sludge with no discernible cheese flavor. It's been 6 years since I've eaten at a Chilis. The food is now depressingly bad.

I reserved a table for nine people for last night. I had confirmed the reservation with the manager the night before. We arrived promptly at 6:30 and were told that they were just waiting for a party to leave. The reality was that the party had just been seated and hadn't even received their food. In spite of talking to... More
