Epic FAIL for Acoustical Engenieers

What can I say, it's exactly what you would expect from a Chili's. The service, the food, the environment was all.. average.

While vacationing in Florida, we stopped by Chili's for dinner one night and ended up stopping for lunch again the next day. The food was great and the service even better. Thanks Landon!

Where to start? The restaurant is in great need of a deep cleaning and updating. The floor was sticky, windows dirty, trash on the floor that the wait staff ignored and walked around. A kitchen helper walked into the dining room and looked more like a garbage truck helper than a food service worker but the real turn off was... More

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.

My daughter and I love meeting for lunch at this Chili's. They have a nice menu with lots to choose from. I don't feel like I have to get all glammed up to eat here.We sit in the bar area and usually share a yummy chicken nacho appetizer and the we split a huge buffalo chicken salad, which I highly...

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.
