Good food, but a lack of organisation

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.

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!!!

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

Time around 5:00 pm, reason for going to Chili's was we had some coupons and were staying at a local motel. Service was good, food was good but barely warm perhaps they used cold plates. The two for $ 20.00 meal included an onion ring appetizer and two entrees. Everything was good but they should do something about the temperature... More

Stopped into Chili's San Bruno for a late dinner and was very pleasantly surprised not only with the food but also the over the top service. Most chain restaurant service while reasonable is a bit forced. Not so at this establishment. Good management and good people make this a relaxing place to take a break and enjoy a break from...

The food at Chili's is good (no great), and sometimes this location has slow service, even when they are not that busy. They do make a good drink at the bar.

First time at a chilli's and very glad we went. Food was plentiful and delicious. Our waiter (think his name was Derek?) was super friendly, stayed and chatted with us and was just so nice. Food came out super quick and was just a really nice experience.
