Noisy and surprisingly busy for a Sunday evening; 20-minute wait for table even call-ahead priority. Friendly and efficient service, though servers seemed rushed. Food was mediocre. Our fairly large party ordered a variety of items, and none were especially good, though none were bad either. On balance, rather disappointing, with numerous better choices in the Brandon area.

Close to hotels, great food and service. I had the pork carnitas. They were good and the portion large. Two for one drinks is always a nice touch too. The service was very good. Being a Saturday night it was very busy but the wait for a table was only 15 minutes.

Always enjoy eating at chilis. Their menu has a variety of options and nothing is ever bad. Service this trip was slow but the on table kiosk helped out. We will be back.

My Chili's by Sam's club is always fresh and delightful. Wait staff is always nice and attentive. I go there with family and friends. No one ever complains!

It is a Chili's so perhaps I ask too much. But the service and the food is more indicative of a buffet style restaurant than an actual restaurant.

Not knowing what to expect, as I cannot eat overly spicy food, I was pleased that there were several selections that had the mild version. I enjoyed a tasty steak fahita lunch and didn't have heartburn afterwards

Two times there, twice disappointed. Parts of orders missing, really overcooked childrens corndogs...really overcooked. Soured iced tea. We told our waitress that the tea tasted like it had gone bad yet she continued to pour the pitcher to other customers.
