Improved menu

My family and I haven't been to Chili's for quite a while and were pleasantly surprised at the menu. Many new items that we enjoyed from the menu. The fajitas were excellent, plenty of drink refills and we will be going back in the near future.

Always enjoy the two for one drink specials. The staff is nice, and the atmosphere is fun. Nice place to unwind, watch a game or just catch up with friends, and paying from the tablets is great.

This is our local Chili's, and while I love the chain, I really don't love this particular location. Today there were the same types of problems: 1) just seems a little dirtier than other places. The menus especially always seem gross and sticky. Today mine had bbq sauce between the pages. and 2) the service can be quite spotty. We... More

Even with it busy we didn't have to wait long for a table. There was enough staff to keep things moving along and the food is what you expect from a chilis. The only negative was that since it was busy if felt like we were expected to eat and run so they could turn over the table. We stayed... More

The chicken fajitas are the best but I've never had a bad meal there. Not a drinker at the present time but they do make a great Margarita and the Bloody Marys aren't bad either.

We don't usually eat at Chili's, but my cousin likes it so we went. We were surprised by the beer specials and the margarita trio. Great drinks! Try the watermelon Rita! It was so good! The food was good and service was better than expected. All in all a solid value!

After she worked in the house all day which included cleaning the rugs, I thought it would be a great idea to let my wife take me out for dinner. She chose Chilis because we are members of their Email club. We recieve coupons on a regular basis including free appitizers, kid's meals and desserts. I recommend joining. If you... More

We stopped here before a ball game and sat at the bar to have a couple of drinks and to have a little bite to eat. We ordered the sliders and they were actually very good, better than I was anticipating. The onion strings that were served with the sliders were also very good. Our bartender Rob, was very attentive... More

Worked in the kitchen there. Roaches crawling on the cutting board wile I was preparing food, cooks using hand to scoop rice with no gloves, dirty plates being reused, food dropped on floor and served. Bon appetit!

Stopped here for lunch after attending a movie a a nearby theater. The lunch hours are extended to 4 pm. My wife and I each enjoyed a lunch combo special that included a generous bowl of tasty soup or chili and our choice of entree. All of our choices were served promptly by a very courteous staff. We left fully... More
